Ditto on the t-4, t-3 is restrictive and on these cars you want to keep the heat out of the cylinders and a t-4 housing is good for that. On mitsu EVOs, some make up to 700 horse on a t-3, but at 40 psi! On our cars you don't want that much, so the t-4 would be a little better as it could be more efficient at lower boost. Being that it is 3.8, I would even consider a .96 hotside because you have displacement on your side and you wont be as sensitive to lag as our smaller displacement 3.3's.
A good guy to contact is Chris Carrol of TurboKraft as he has done many nutty 3.8 motors and is a dealer for AEM efi if interested.
