You can purchase an entire 930 CIS system for $1000 (manifold alone is $100). That will allow you to use stock parts which keeps cost down and fabrication to a minimum. Down side is aging components.
EFI is custom so plan on cost overruns and lots of obstacles. Up side is precise system control.
Late model 930 exhaust is least expensive option but not best design. Headers run from $600 Chinese to $4000 custom. Mine are in the middle cost wise.
Intercoolers run from $75 for a stock one (if using 930 CIS) to $3000 custom EFI/Carrera. Mine are in the middle cost wise.
Turbos run from $100 for a good 3LDZ to $1300 for a K27 or Garrett. 3LDZ is a laggy turbo, K27 is a bolt on if using stock 930 equipment, Garrett requires fabrication and oil feed modification if using stock 930 equipment.

I get the feeling you could spend a lot more to do this than is required. A clear list of build requirements will reduce this likelihood. The number one question is do you prefer custom and EFI or bolt-on 930 components?
