I would say that all th parts are going to cost about 4k or so. Install and custom fab could run another 1-4k depending on the shop and their labor rates and things like that. These are all just ballpark figures.

I would go with an internal wastegate in your situation so you do not have to fab up extra pipes and things like that, it will keep your application a little simpler as well.

I have heard that the e36 manifolds will work, but I am not sure how many people have tested that. I would go with a tubular design rather than a cast manifold.

I have been turbod for about 1500 miles now, very few problems. Only problems really have to do with running no 02 sensors, so it is not a big deal.

Even though you are a software guy, you will have to have a dyno to do the tuning on and all that. Hope I was able to offer you a little help.
