8-11 should be safe...but if you are asking that, then i think you need to go read a lot more.

I have actually been up close and personal with an E34 525iSE (M50) with a Garret and a full flow 6 branch (Non Cat), simple remap and a rather fat head gasket (6mm) LOL...
198 bhp standard but threw it up to nearly 260 !!

If you are new to turbo than you should read Maximum Boost
This will get you or fine tune what you thought about turbo charging
The injectors have to be considered balanced with you turbo setup
the Tuning has to be done.
if you change the head gasket to a thicker one like .120 and .140 MLS
than you should go with at least ARP or a metric blue head studs
and if you do go thicker HG than make the gasket around the water pump and the profile gasket with gasket paper because the HG will raise the head. not unless you can get a thicker profile gasket kit. i could not find one, and my search engine skills need discipline.

go get 24# injectors
metric blues will work
stock HG, just a new one
source a turbo and a manifold
source your intercooler/piping

best enginemanagement is the MILLER WAR chip. it CAN controll boost too.
also check out e30tech.com and r3vlimited.com for info on FI.
