Turbo Parts

I'm thinking about buying a custom turbo kit part by part over time. Can anyone make a list of every part needed for a turbo setup? And also what other factors need to be considered like pipe diameter? What needs to be considered when purchasing different parts to ensure they will all work together?

I dunno much about tubos but some of the stuff you need is:

-blow off valve
-turbo itslef
-all the piping

I know theres more but i cant remeber. Its easier to go with the kit itslef or a supercharger. Superchargers have less parts and are usually cheaper.

probably want a flywheel to go with a clutch.

Definetely a new diff

I would upgrade brakes and suspension if I got a turbo pushing the hp that you want.

the same thing that applies to e-30s applies to all cars.

the e36 just has a better flowing head which means you can get more power
