Anyone have experience putting a turbo on and then modding the ECU on a 12v vr6?

The front slope on the roll cage makes the rig look pretty sweet!

The car is currently going back burner while I seek some pro advice on the cage, chassis and layout. It won't go away, but I'm not going to hurry either. I have a stop gap rig to use for now...
