turbo combo?

Does this look like a combo I could make 800 plus hp with
89 Coupe
393 shp dart block
205 AFR heads
custom cam
trick flow R box intake
T-56 Transmission
76mm Garrett turbo from hp performance
Upr K member kit
No A/C
Not sure what gears i want to do yet

And do you think the Turbo will hold me back or would i be putting to much on it?

Yes, you will be going pass the choke line on T-76 = not good

80-88mm would be much better. maybe a Precision GTS78
or twin 62-1's

You could make 800hp with that combo. But I would agree with going to a bigger turbo. Id go with an 88 if I had your setup. The 76mm would begin to hold you back if you want more power.

T-88 plots out perfect. Lots of room to crank up the boost too.
GT-4508 would be a good turbo as well or a Borg Warner S488

Im no expert but a lot of the time they rate those turbo's to engine hp not rwhp. Also he said he wanted 800+ hp. And another thing, you dont want to be maxing out the turbo and making it work a lot harder. A slightly bigger turbo would make the same power but spin a lot less.
