Two would be enough.

Jesus man a 496 anything shouldnt have a problem putting 700+ to the ground, an extra 300 from a tiny huff of boost isnt a stretch. Hope the rest of the car can take it...

T6 exhaust side required for sure.

I would look in the 88mm - 91mm size range, yes I realize that this is way overkill, but it will at least get out of that motors way when not in boost.

The hx55 with the big exhaust side would be enough turbo, but I would goto at least a an hx60, and probably right to that 82, if you have the room.
