Okay, so this my list of required items:

The turbo itself: a K27S (or stock 930)
A 'J pipe' (for the waste gate)
An electronic ignition system (like maybe that xDI system? Would that work here?)
An EFI system for the injection (Megasquirt)
A waste gate
Exhaust system--will the SSI headers w/ heat exchangers work for this application or should I stick with 930 headers? That's the next purchase on my list of stuff (jeez this car is a money pit ...good thing I didn't pay much for it).
An intercooler. This one confuses me. It seems like the price for an intercooler varies pretty widely. I see OEM 930 intercoolers for as much as $4k, and used ones for as low as $400. Any advice there?

The blow off valve I don't really understand yet.

Thanks much.
The Uncertainty Principle. It proves we can't ever really know...what's going on. So it shouldn't bother you. Not being able to figure anything out. Although you will be responsible for this on the mid-term. -Larry Gopnik
