    I'm a borgwarner fan. I'm running a s480 on my ls3 swapped 72 camaro. No dyno or track times yet. The Borg turbos are physically larger than most, but are extremely durable , make serious power, and are reasonably priced .
    You need to figure out what rpm range you want to run and size the turbine side accordingly. You will run out of flow with the 75mm turbine pretty quickly on a 6.0. That will create extra heat in the whole system. Can you make your goal of 650 wheel with the 7675, absolutely ! But I think you will be much happier with a 87/81 or 96/88 turbine wheel, without choking the exhaust side and spiking turbo heat. On the compressor side, I would steer towards a 75, 76, or even an 80mm wheel. Any of these will exceed your goals on a 6.0 with pump gas. Anything you can do to cool the air down will be an engine saver. I run a cheap 31x12x4 air to air intercooler and a water/meth setup. I run the Fitech 1200 pa TB injection, innovate SGC 1 boost controller with the AFR/over boost safety, and the J&S safeguard individual cylinder knock retard/monitor.
    Good luck with your build and remember, start conservative on the tune and creep up on it.

    I ran an ls turbo mustang this weekend and he went boom. 2nd engine for him in a month. Stock bottom end isn't a smart move.

    It's all in the tune and supporting mods. My GN had a stock longblock and I had no problem getting into the 10s on a safe tune. Running C16, I ran about 30 PSI without hurting anything. Others blew up built engines only running 12s. Low timing, high boost with proper A/F ratios and stuff lives a lot longer.
