This is my advise: don't do it. You have the wrong car do do a mod like that, adding a turbo on a V6 engine requires lots of things that will not worth the investment and effort to make it right. The best cars to play with a turbocharger kit are the 4 cylinders, trust me, I have over 35 years of experience from the time when fuel injection was very rare on cars.

Thanks for your advice. Saves me a headache

Yes because the turbo uses special exhaust manifolds to drive the turbo turbine.

Yes, a problem.
