M52 obd1 swap

My e36 is my weekend car and I sprung a oil leak on the free way and didn't notice it until it was to late. I'm thinking about buying a second hand m52 to replace my m50 but would like to turbo it. I already picked out the turner cam and will be using the manifold off of my m50 I already have the Bavarian motor sport coil packs. I'm wondering on a m52 what's the maximum horsepower the stock bottom end can handle with a ported and polished head valve springs and the solid lifter kit. I'm trying to shoot for somewhere in the 500s but I'm looking into fuel management and a fueling system. Thinking about going over to a fuel cell with a inline pump. I'm not going to be driving it all the time. I would just like to have a fun fast car. How big of a injector should I go with? How big of a pump should I go with? What computer should I go with etc. I can't find much info online or aftermarket motor parts for the car to point me in the right direction. Thanks for your time guys.
