Speed speed speed

Hi guys, i have recently bought a 1990 E34 535i and have a few questions. currently the specs are:
M30B35 engine:
Dyno'd 127.6rwkw @ Torque Performance
Very clean engine which runs and pulls well with good compressions
Uses no fluids and has no leaks
Complete gasket and seal replacement
New timing chain guides, rail and tensioner
All ignition components have been replaced and injectors cleaned
New water pump, thermostat, viscous fan and various hoses

Drivetrain:
Getrag 260 transmission, shifts very nice
E28 single mass flywheel with new clutch kit
New clutch bearings, transmission mounts and seals
All gearshift bushings have been done.
3.64 ratio LSD

Suspension:
Vogtland springs with new Koni Street shocks all round
25mm M5 front sway bar and 20mm Whiteline adjustable rear
Front bump steer spacers
Poly sway bar and control arm bushings with new links
New tie rods and pitman arms

Brakes:
E34 540i front brakes
OEM brake pads
Mtech front brake ducting
New brake hoses all round

Wheels\Tyres:
BBS RN 17x8 ET15 in good condition with Bridgestone RE050A 235/45 tyres

Interior:
All leather has been refinished
Mtech2 steering wheel
Mtech alloy pedals
M5 console Tray
New shifter boot and ZHP shifter knob
Custom E34 cup holders

I am currently happy with the way it runs now but want to make this car FAST. and by this i mean a higher top speed and more torque. i am currently looking at a turbo charge and an ecu. but would anyone have any recommendations of what turbo and ecu to get as well as what else i could possibly do to make this a speed demon??

cheers

a=F/m

It's a lot less expensive to reduce the "m" to increase "a" than throwing money at "F".
