Gtx3076, gtx3576, or gtx3582?

I'm currently building a turbo svt. It will be fully built, head and bottom end. I currently have a gtx3076. The car will be a dd and occasionally see the strip. I'm looking at going 10:1 and it is cammed. Its not running yet I should say. I read the gtx3576 spools like the gtx3076 but makes more top end due to the bigger, less restrictive turbine size. I don't want a lot of lag as its primarily a street car. With that in mind I realistically want and think I can make over 500whp on pump gas seeing as Chris earls made 489 with a stock head but I also understand he had a gt35. That's why I question the gtx3576. For those who don't know what it is, its nothing more than a gtx30 compressor wheel with a gt35 turbine wheel. The difference in price between a gtx3576 and a gtx3582 is like $9. I'm liking the gtx3576 because of the spool. Whats your guys opinions?

Just get a gtx3576 with a small .ar housing to help with faster spool.

Why not just max out the gtx3076 first and if it doesn't make the power you want or looking for than upgrade.

I'm undecided because I want 500 on pump. 20psi is all I feel I'm gonna be able to run on pump at 10:1 and I'm not sure the 3076 will get me to my goal

I think the highest I've seen on a 3076 is kwick black and I believe it was 420whp @ 19psi
