We're not sure what you've got done already. You might have it posted somewhere else, but you need to update your profile.

My car is well, it's like 10 lbs of shit in a 5 lb bag...

Well, with that being said, I'm sure that you'll be getting a pump as well. With all of those upgrades and a good tune, your boost goal should be pretty easy to achieve. I've owned the EvoIII 16g before and with similar mods I was running 20-24 psi on pump. This was in a different car, but as far as the turbo goes, it's well within it's efficiency range. It's also going to give you a nice kick too. I like those turbos myself.

Get a wideband if you're going to tune it yourself. Also, make sure that you've got gauges.

The most important thing about tuning is to do it in small increments. Adjust one thing at a time and be careful. Know what you're changing and why you're changing it.

I would tell you to invest in some dyno time, but if you're going to street tune it, make sure you have a friend with you to drive the car while you make adjustments. Don't tune alone, it's a pita and it's dangerous too.
