You need to talk to Mike Lu about turbos and you'll need a custom set up most likely.

I can only say... DO NOT GO CUSTOM IT COST TOO MUCH hahahaha I spent over $10,000 on my turbo setup and it is just finished.
I do believe David Draper from West Covina Toyota will have his well researched kit come out in a few month get that, the price for a basic kit is $3500. I don't know about losing topspeed because I have not got on the pedals yet, I am still tuning the turbo to run smoother. But it is damn fast I am at 65mph before I know it, so if you have lead foot a radar detector is recommanded accessory grin
