Default 6.0 turbo build help and ?

Im looking to do a 6L build and wanna know what works everytime. Im basically wanting to do a turbo build and wanna know what heads will work better and why?
I Know of people running stock 317 heads and pulling over 700 rwhp and others who have them ported. Then there are users of 799 heads that claim the same. Which will be better and why?

What intake is recommended and can a stock cube 6L with h/c/i single turbo on a th400/brake make 8s?

How much power is needed and what are the parts needed?

This is NOT me asking how much $ to do it. BUt what parts are needed what is the way to do it?

317's have larger chambers, which help keep compression low for boost. Might look into a set of lsa/ls9 heads designed for boost with large chambers as well. They flow awesome stock and should net you your goals for about the same or cheaper than having 317's ported.

Depending on what it is going in, you have more boost friendly intake options with cathedral heads, but a fast 102 on the ls9 heads would work great.
