I have a 2001 BMW 325i E46 M54 2.5 liter inline 6. I'm looking at a new motor and I'm wondering recommendations for putting in a already turbo charged motor into it looking for the best route any suggestions?

Well.. Any "already turbocharged" engine will not be from an e46 are require a great deal of custom work.
Turbocharging an M54 will cost many thousands to do correctly, and swapping in a 2jz will also cost many many thousands.

Swap in a m54b30. If you want a turbo figure it out later. Engine transplants and turbo builds aren't a novice project, and pretty much must be done yourself otherwise you'll be at 5 figures for labour costs.
