I am aiming to have right around 600whp, should be pretty doable with the J35 and J32a2 heads and two Garrett GTX2860R Turbos. I plan to run twin wastegates along with 3" downpipes and open wastgate dumps, my hope is that this will all work together for good throttle and transient boost response as well as low end torque. I want to work closely with the tuner to aim for low to mid range power, im thinking the small turbos and theyre being one per bank will aid in this.

Calculations:
Estimating Boost (based on N/A Stock J35a8 and atmospheric pressure):
N/A, Stock J35a8: 286hp @ 6,200rpm and 14.7psi (Atmospheric Pressure) = 19.5hp per psi
Boosted J35a8: 600hp Goal / 19.5hp per psi = 30.8psi total intake charge pressure - 14.7 (Atmospheric Pressure) = 16.1psi of boost pressure.

Fuel Consumption:
Given a Thermal Efficiency of 28.3% (Typical of Most Gasoline Burning, 4-Cycle Engines):
*A turbocharged J35A8 running at and creating peak power will consume 48 Gallons of Fuel Per Hour

Brake Specific Fuel Consumption:
A different method of measuring thermal efficiency, expressed in either pounds-per-hour-per-HP OR
gallons-per-hour-per-hp.
*A turbocharged J35a8 running at and creating peak power will consume 0.47 gallons-per-hour-per-hp.

Volumetric Efficiency (VE) and Airflow:
Required VE for 600hp from the J35a8 would be 210%
*N/A J35a8 @ 100% VE= 211.8 cu.in. x 6,000rpm / 3456 = 367.70 scfm
*Turbo J35a8 @ 210% VE (16.1psi boost)= 211.8cu.in. x 6,000rpm / 3456 = 772.17 scfm

Grand total for the build comes in at "way too much" but NOT because its not worth it, I mean I'd have a car that would rival $70-100k supercars but because I don't have it.

Didn’t see anything about what transmission you’re wanting...

My only mention of it was in the collage photo at the begining of the post. Since the J Series V6 is going to be mounted longitudinally for RWD, I plan to use an American Powertrain TREMEC T-56 MAGNUM 6 Spd. It is a RWD, longitudinal, 6spd manual transmission designed to be used as a high performance upgrade for domestics like the Corvette and any other Dodge/GM/Chevy application. Good for road racing and has a high torque capacity. I am going to build my own mounting structure as there is no bellhousing on the market for the Honda/Acura engines. I am going to run a ACT Twin Disc clutch and flywheel designed as an upgrade to the C6 Chevy Corvette along with a custom cnc flywheel adapter (to mate the J35 crank to the Corvette application ACT flywheel), a Chevy/GM LS Series Starter and a custom made 4" aluminum driveshaft.

False.

EDIT: This is going to be sick! I want this to happen.

Wow, how did you find that? I have looked fairly thoroughly for a J series V6 -to- GM/Chevy Transmission Bellhousing or Adapter and have had no luck. Guess I gotta search better. So it says "Perfect fit for 2008-12 Honda V6s with any transmission based on a Gen 1 Chevy platform" Does this include the T-56? Or in other words, will this mate my J35a8 to a American Powertrain Tremec T-56 Magnum 6spd? I don't see it in the list.

This is the applications list from the site your link was to:
  • Bert Racing
  • Brinn Racing
  • Falcon
  • Jerico
  • Muncie
  • Richmond
  • Saginaw
  • T10
  • TKO 500/600 Chevy

Looks like I can't run the T-56 Magnum 6 speed but I can go with an American Powertrain Tremec TKO600 5 speed and run the Quicktime RM-4096 Bellhousing. Most likely going to be the route I go.

Updated:
  • 1650cc Injectors (Decided to go a little larger than the 1000's to keep duty cycle low and have enough potential for more hp)
  • American Powertrain Tremec TKO600 5spd Trans vs. the T-56 MAGNUM 6spd as its cheaper and is compatible with the Quicktime bellhousing that "Freedo Civegra" has helped me find.
  • Quicktime RM-4096 ('08-'12 Honda/Acura V6 -to- GM/Chevy Gen 1) Bellhousing
All have been updated in the list as well as in the collage photo.

Pilot = Engine, mount brackets, ECU, wire harness, exhaust headers, starter, p/s pump, a/c comp, alternator...etc.

Twin turbo is over kill, you can achieve the numbers you want plus more, by just going single.

Iv seen a few V6's single turbo's at 700, stock bottom and heads.

Eaton supercharger with a P2R intercooler would be good, too.

I know that for the most part, a single turbo is just as efficient but I really like the idea of two smaller frame turbos on a longetudally mounted v6. Its going to be a little more plumbing and cost sure but it will be great for the low to mid range power im looking for and they should spool quickly with 1 turbo per 1.75 Liters of engine displacement and 3 cylinders, plus its a little more symetrical looking in the engine bay.
