Using Magnesium Engine Parts

At what stage of tune would it be adviseable not to use the following magnesium parts on an engine build

engine maincase

upper cam cover

lower cam cover

timing chain housing

I am also not sure what fit issues there would be eg stud pitch, suitable crank shaft if I was building a 3.3ltr or 3.6ltr capacity engine.

The reason I ask is it would be nice to offset some of the extra weight of a turbo installation with the reduced weight of the magnesium parts

Are there any other magnesium parts I should consider and what parts do people on here run, if any?
