Question What do you guys think

I am going to do a 2.7 tubo swap for my car in the winter and i was just wondering what everyone thought. i am looking at getting a 1985 2.7 engine from a local junk yard next week end, one of my friends is going to get it then trade it to me for my stock basket weves. i have a brand spanking new head on my 2.5 every part in its new and the head was decked. i will rebuild the 2.7 bottom end stock then put the 2.5 head on the 2.7 bottom end, i have a 6.5 chevy turbo diesel turbo that i will be using a 8 psi waste gate and 8 psi blow off valve with, a mega squirt fuel system bigger injectors not sure what size yet tho. then of course all the other obivous thing i will need for the swap, any info will help sorry if im being a noob im kind new to the small car turbo thing i usually just deal with big rigs. Thanks!
