Help on building a 2.8 stroker

I have a 1984 325e. I want to build it into a race car and to make it faster I want to do the common 325i e head swap. So far I have bought a 325i cylinder head and a few other small parts. I also want to do a turbo. The questions:
  • What pistons do I need? Many people say the 325 super eta ones will work. I have read about custom ordering some but what are the complete specs, compression ratio?
  • Since I want to turbo it how does that effect the pistons?
  • Does anyone have suggestions for a good bolt on turbo kit for under $2000? Also are turbo kits good or should I buy everything separately?

Thank you
