Question Turbo 3.5L V6

I'm thinking about installing turbo for my 2011. I could use some help on brands and/or what parts I will need. Pros/Cons?

Cons: new technology for the engine ( dunno if the engine will hold up), already weak transmission, all custom fab work, custom tune needed ( if not a system like megasquirt), sourcing parts like bigger injectors etc...

Pro: would be sick, customer 1 of a kind, pretty quick,

As far as recommended parts, really the only way would be with a custom rear mount setup. Something like sts.

Honestly unless you know turbos, fab work, someone who can tune etc, you would be better selling and starting out with a 2005 ss impala 3800sc or a 2006-2009 ss ls4 5.3 v8 impala...
