T70 with that motor will make more then 500 at the wheel assuming the engine is tune and built well.
I had a T70 and had nothing but good thing from it and had full boost at 3k in a 302.

I would say a s400, That is what i got for my 351w its not running yet but I have heard nothing but good things about them. The one I have has a 1.10 exhaust housing on it, i think the 1.32 might be a little on the big side for a 357w.

T70 is a little too small for a 357W.

Need a T-76mm


btw: I found it was going to be easier to install twin T3/T4's 60mm
with twin 2.5" down pipes then trying to squeeze a 3.5" down pipe
and one big turbo in there. Cost is same too.

You will easily hit 550rwhp at low boost.

Exactly. You're going to make this kind of power without even trying with either one of these turbos.

'91 mod motor, turbocharged notchback, mid-8s... (SOLD)
'91 331ci GT, twin 76mm turbos, hopefully mid-7s...
'03 Evo, 2.0L, 68mm turbo, AWD street terror, mid-9s

T70 with a 0.96 or bigger (if available) would be a good option. He's looking for something for mostly street and it will have fast spool unlike the larger turbo but the t70 won't give you as much room to grow. The T70 is good for 700hp with is more then his present goal.

I'm using a MP T-70 with a .96 exhaust on my 363ci motor at 9lbs of boost. Made 519rwhp and 576rwtq on a dynojet. More than enough to slip my upgraded clutch... Full boost seems to come on around 3,700rpm.
