The first thing is to decide what amount of boost you want and at what RPM. Unless you want the boost to peak at 1500 RPM and the turbo to run out of breath by 3500, a T3/T4 hybrid is probably the wrong choice - they're meant to provide very high boost on small displacement engines that don't have a large exhaust volume. You'll need to set goals first, then size the parts accordingly.
