ITB's aren't terribly effective on turbocharged car and 8.7:1 C/R is a tad too high for high power outputs, but otherwise it's a sound idea. Stay clear of raising rate FPR, use ordinary 3 bar FPR. Injectors shouldn't be a problem. 400-500cc should be OK. Get a good turbo to begin with. Stay clear of KKK "shed-modified" (sorry..."flow-prepped") junk. Garrett GT35R should be fine. Intercooler isn't so complicated...basically "the bigger the better". If you are technically inclined, you can also use water/air heat exchanger and thus get rid of intercooler packaging problems (and gain new with cooler in front). I don't see the reason for using 12-plug distributor either. Get yourself twin EDIS-6 coilpacks and your good to go. Sell 12-plug distributor to some MFI-lover.

964 cams should be just enough for medium output turbo engine.

BOV is a goes between plenum (after throttle) and turbo intake (or into air, for that sweet ricer sound). Wastegate needs to be connected before the turbo. Discharge into air is OK. Also, there are turbochargers with integrated wastegate.

Good luck!
Thank you for your time,
