My Ride: E46 M3 Turbo
None of this is as hard as what people make out. And considering most of the people on this forum don't lift a spanner they pay for everything to be done I wouldn't listen to most of them. If you have the time and money the sky is the limit. As long as you know that it does take more time and money to be a pioneer then go for it.

If it was me I would be using a GT35 turbo at about 7-8psi and leave the motor stock for now. The last thing you want is have something go left of centre while sorting it out and have to pull a motor out again after it's already been out and built. That's just expensive and wastes time. Get it tuned and running with no faults and have fun with it like that first.
