To do it right.. yes. Rods, pistons, headwork, cam, higher flowing injectors, fuel pump, chip, upgraded clutch, turbo manifold, turbo, downpipe, headgasket(Multi layered steel gasket),ARP hardware, bigger exhaust, better tires, intercooler, piping, more. Im in the process of building a 3.5 from a 91 535i for my E30. Im buying the Miller turbo tuning package, the turbo manifold, a HX65 Holeset turbo, arp headstuds, thicker headgasket, side mount intercooler from a 95 eclipse, piping off of ebay, a bosch upgraded fuel pump, adjustable fuel pressure regulator, upgraded 6 puck clutch, 3" turbo back exhaust with electronic cut out to do a straight dump, solid motor mounts and tranny mounts, meth spray kit for intercooler and prolly another atleast $1000 for here and there items along the way.
It's not cheap, but on 7psi I should put down close to 400hp. With same mods on the 2.5 you'll see maybe 300hp
