I havent turbocharged a bmw but I have turbocharged many other cars. If you keep the boost down around 8 psi and properly tune the car you should be fine. What I mean by tuning is, you need to make sure you keep a stoichiometric air/fuel mixture and retard your timing. Any added horsepower does cause more stress to your motor, transmission and will cause it fail earlier than it may have if not turbocharged. Also do a lot of research. Dont by any china components.
