should only need an exhaust manifold. there is very little performance difference between custom and "off the shelf" if you keep the boost lower. from there, find the turbo you want and measure out the flange then get matching manifold.

There are kits for M40 motors for turbos and superchargers the SC doesn't give you superpower but is a good increase and you can go crazy with the turbo set ups as much power as your wallet can stand.
