Modifying a 3.0 turbo to 350 h.p.

Still researching a 3.0 turbo motor. A stock or aftermarket i/c is not going to work in the stock location, but a i/c will be used. The goal is 350-400 chp. I know the basic mods, bigger turbo, i/c, better exhaust, sc cams, better w/g, but would like some more specific information. Starting with a stock 3.0 motor with 6.5 c/r. A few questions:
Can the stock intake/fuel head be modified to handle the power, or move up to a 3.3 intake, or something else.
Can the heads be flycut to bump the compression up to 7.1
Are the aftermarket parts interchangeable between a 3.0 and 3.3, such as the turbo, and heated headers like the 930 SSI's. If not, which system fits.
Will the K27 bolt up and work.
The goal is a nice street motor. For now, it will be bolted up to a '84 915 trans w/7:31 r&p and early 5th gear, Sachs sport clutch.

Also feel free to list your mods and h.p.
'79 930/DP935
'68 VW 3.3 Turbo Crewcab
