Question about boost

I am running nos, MSD and iridum plugs,intake,headers,exaust and a ton of little stuff. i want to turbo and have the green, but what systems will i have to upgrade or discard to make the boost work. Also is there a formula to tell what amount of boost i can run or is it just do trial and error.

Running NOS? As in nitrous oxide systems? Or as in a nitrous setup? In either case, you have to make sure that your nitrous setup is compatible with forced induction. Turbo first, then n2o. Anyway, other than that, your turbo kit guide should tell you how much boost is safe, and you shouldn't go over it. There is no real general application equation, but rather how much air can be packed into the cylinder without pre-detonation. And that, depends on your setup. For upgrades, you're lookin at;

Piston heads
Turbo kit
6-7 man hours

Other than that, you're good to go.
