Cool 05 3.0 v6 turbo

new to the forum , but have definetly been here many many times, anyways, i own an 05 3L jaguar s type, ive completed quite a few modifications on it such as :

cat delete
lowering spirings
auxillary 3.5 mm radio input
throttle bypass
aftermarket rotors
under tray replacement
aftermarket kmc wheels ( as seen in my album)
blacked 90% of the chrom
xenon kits for all front lights
aftermarket speakers
ceramic window tint
and a few other items

anyways ive been starting to really recognize the positive effects of adding turbo chargers to usually naturally aspirated engines ( being power and fuel consumption). i havnt found much on any other forum about adding a turbo but obviously it is possible, im planning on adding a small charger just behind the main grill and placing a small intercooler on an angle behind the lower grille. tunes are not an easy ( if even possible ) thing on these guys but, im thinking a 4-6 psi max boost wouldnt need to much of a tune , im thinking that with that small of an added amount of boost the factory tune should be able to compensate enough to make this addition worth while. before purchasing the rather costly components i would just like to have some input , ideas , experience or anything that anybody has to offer .

P.S - im aware that the R would be more cost effective and reliable but im just the kind of guy that likes to make something different , something that hasnt been seen before ( such as offroad truck wheels on a lucary sedan )
thanks! -Nick

Default possible twins

now considering replacing the hollow cats with small turbos to avoid x pipes and that seems to be the absolute best placement ( considering the exhaust flow)

Sell the V-6 and buy an STR. Much, much cheaper as you will never get all the STR features built into a 6 cylinder.

A car is more than HP!

i definetly appreciate the response/input but im not necessarily trying to be cost effective or better , i just want it to be .. different . this is not my daily driver anymore, its basically one of my toys that i just couldnt re-sell. after dumping thousands into repairs i just couldnt part with it for 5g at the most. i bring it to shows on a regular basis, based purely on cosmetics people really enjoy it. i think having it look the way it does with a twin turbo set up would just completely set it apart, even if its only running at like 2 psi, but again, thank you!

Nick, there is a video of 2 guys that did exactly what you want to do as far as "twin turboing" a vehicle that is not worth the investment.

Please YouTube "twin leafblower turbo" from a couple of blokes down under.

PS. go buy an STR that no one can give away anymore which is quite a shame! Save your money for your college fund.

It will never run correctly without the ability to tune the car. A stand-alone fuel management system is a must. Not to mention a custom fabrication of an exhaust manifold and internal engine parts that will need upgrading. You are better off just doing an engine swap (also not cost-effective) or getting an STR unless you have your mind made up and a very big wallet.

You will not believe the pain and cost till you try it. No-one tunes the V6 so you need to start with that or a piggy back device.

Terrible waste of money but if you have lots to waste, well OK it's your money.

Expect limp mode a lot.

i appreciate all the replies ive gotten! thank all of you, ive had alot of experience with limp mode as im sure you all have to. the ecm and basically the whole car just isnt to fun to work with so i think im just going to leave it how it is and buy another fun car lol. '90 miatas seem easy to work with, im thinking combining it with a chevy 350 and stripping it out completely. thank you all again !
