Sorry but not many options out there yet. STS single turbo, or if you do some searching in this section or the marketing (sponsors) section you'll find a few companies either offering, or developing twin turbo setups.

Also one or two companies claim they are developing a supercharger for the V6, but we have yet to see much light on that.

The STS kit is the least expensive that I have seen retailing at $5999 for just the kit and tune. I have not seen anything cheaper.

The RX twin turbo kit is priced similar to the single and comes with ceramic ball bearing turbos. If you want ceap turbos you can save $1000 or so but no guarantees on them.

That's what I have and I like them. Definitely pay the extra for the better turbos. They'll last longer!

If I could just quit messing withm and breaking stuff

More money doesn't always equal better longevity For example, you can spring for ball-bearing and billet upgrades that will improve spool-up and usually flow, but don't make a turbo more "Reliable".

The Tial SS Housings we use on the V8 cars are awesome for flow due to the 1.03 A/R but they are not going to "Last" any longer than the standard cast housing -- they just cost a lot more

IMO a properly-sized turbo will spool great with the 3.6L and still make as much power as the engine / tranny will allow
