That's going to be super laggy, I'd look at a 30/71 bearing unit but it'll set you back £1500 and a remap.

I'm so out of date with turbo's and sizing now, but if that is meant to be a GT3076 it is massive overkill for 300BHP. I run the GT3076 and that makes 400bhp. Plus I'm on 0.63 housing and not the 0.82 as listed so will have even more lag that CountryCrusiing already mentioned.

If you want 300bhp I'd also look at upgrading the injectors as this are generally good for 280bhp-ish and that is with max duty being run.
