Have you considered turbo charging? Much more effective way to go with the I6 and generally cheaper, with better results...

Yeah for the I6 id seriously consider a turbo. Fair bit of time, effort and money for one. If you want relatively cheap and easy bolt on - go for a CAPA supercharger kit.

I thought of turbo charging my i6 but am very unsure what way to go.
What do you guys think would be the best way to go about it. I have to replace my front bar as well so i may do it then.

Exactly, NOS is fine for drag cars but if you want a good street package with power on tap any time then blown or turbo is the way to go.
