I started by reading what this fellow had done:

http://www.bmw2002faq.com/component/...view,/start,0/

Albeit it's a 2002 decidedly different from yours it gave me the basic idea of what components are needed. Turbo, exhaust turbo manifold, intercooler, intake manifold, sensors, management system etc. From here I started sourcing which bits would work for me where to get them from and how much.

Then I realized my engine is a giant oil pit and I've started rebuilding it instead.

Hopefully this helps and you have fun!
