Thinking of putting turbo on 3.0 big bore with twin plug, comments?

Recently purchased a 1982 Targa 3.0, I was told with big bore pistons, twin plugs, dual MSD, it has a very bizarre twin distributor set up. I have purchased all the components to put the stock 930 turbo setup on the engine. I realize not lowering the compression ratio might create some problems. But I wanted to get some comments from the experts before I make the plunge.

Couple extra questions I have are:
- if I keep the twin distributor running a belt off the cam where the scavenger pump goes, can I use a electric scavenge pump? Good/bad idea??
- if I keep the boost low will this navigate around the detonation complication?
- if it doesn't work right, what would be my worst case scenario, would this destroy the long block?
- If there would be weak component would it be on the top side or should I be concerned about the crank/block?
