Ok, if you look at what the factory delivered in 3.0L engines you had 180 HP N.A. and 260HP boosted to 11.8PSI. This is 6.8HP/one PSI manifold boost.

If you wish to take a 8.5:1 N.A. motor and simply lash up a turbo with little cost and some risk you should expect 210-220HP on pump gas. If you wish to start spending money to reinvent the wheel do that also. Turbos are great devices, they can give you just about any HP you wish. The F1 guys produced 15HP/CID, that equates to a 2700HP 3.0L.

See below effective compression ratio chart for suggested manifold pressure.
