Would this setup make a good SC turbo build (260WHP)??

Hi fellow petrol-heads!

So I am going to build a a turbo engine based on my 3.0L engine. I have a 1980 Porsche SC, the US edition with 180HP. I want to build a turbo engine and step into the dark side!!

I am not in any way an expert but I know that a lot of you guys have been down this road and may have some good advice. And pointers for me to follow, and opinions regarding my build. But no it is not an option to sell the SC and buy a 930!!

This is what I intend to do:
- Swap the CIS intake with a 3.2 inlet
- Install a TEC3 engine management system
- Maybe use the K7/K9 turbo from RarlyL8 or the K7 7200 (opinions?)
- Do a custom or maybe just a stock 3.3 intercooler
- upgrade the head studs to 993TT
- Maybe upgrade the oil pump to a 965 (do I really need to change the SC pump?)
- Swap to 98mm Mahle cylinders
- Order JE pistons with 7.5:1 comp
- Use the SC camshafts
- Install 930 headers and dual muffler
- Use the stock SC heads but rebuild them

So this is what i got so far. Do you fellow pelicans think this would be a okey combo? My aim is about 250-260WHP. Realistic??
