Dang sounds like you have a lot to do. And since you have the LTs I would recommend a SC unless you are fine selling them.

If you go turbo, can I buy your LT's? Can't wait to see what you do regardless.

Sure, although im sure shipping would suck and im most likely going to go procharger or vortech. Unless a super good deal pops up on a turbo kit.

Also just bought one of these for my gauges, im thinking boost and wideband. Would i really even need any other gauges?

I think the gauges look fine without carbon fiber. As for gauges, maybe an A/F gauge?

get cobra gauges but get rid of the red SVT on them. with the cam and ported heads youll be shifting well after 6k so the crappy v6 tach wouldn't be the best IMO the cobra goes up to 8k i believe

its a street car, and im not swapping out the mach ones, i had them custom made. plus getting rid of the SVT and making it work in the sixxer would cost too much.
