Turbo 325es 2.7L??? Anyone done it??

Alright guys, im new to the forum, i dont own a BMW but my friend does and he doesnt have internet access, so he relys on me to do his research for him, which i dont mind.
First off, im in the process of Turboing my VW Bora, 24v VR6, GT35r Turbo, 034Motorsports standalone, etc etc etc.

Anyways,
I was wondering if i could gather some info on turboing the 2.7L motor that came in the 325es in 86.

Who sells a kit?
if there is no kit, who sells the parts, i.e., manifold, chip, etc.
im trying to steer him away from doing a 95 325i motor swapm only said to be like 180hp or something?? i think a turbo setup would be better.

Can anyone help out a nOOb??

PPF makes a really pretty M20 manifold, so does 666 fabrication. All of the good M20 manifolds are pulse separated, so you should put that together with a good twin scroll turbo. You're going to run into a huge wall as far as power output is concerned because the eta motors are horribly balanced, due to the fact that they only rev to 5k or so.

Read about my Frankenmotor Project and see how an M50 becomes an S50!!!

No, don't worry. It's cool. I'm taking it back for us.

as far as i know there arent any turbo kits for the 325es... there might be some for the 325i but youd have to swap a bunch of parts i think... good luck though, but it looks like its going to have to be a custom job...
