Modding a BMW e46 with 145,00

I'm looking at Modding a 2001 325xi with 145,000 miles on it. Good idea as long as the engine and transmission are in good condition? I plan on using Dinan exhaust, computer upgrade(stage 2)and a high flow intake system. And maybe putting a turbo in there too but I'm kind of hesitant to do this because of the higher mileage on the car.
Any input will help.
Please don't just shred this idea apart unless it is just a waste of money and time.

You own the slowest E46 made....nothing that you mentioned will change that fact. Save your money, and buy a 330i.

Installing a turbo system is not a "plug `n play" deal, you`re talking about a $10,000 investment (plus the cost of a new trans).

Ok thanks Fast Bob I'm gonna look into some 330xi's then. It's just hard to find a manual one, but I'll keep looking till I find something
