 For starters you must change the dome pistons to reverse dome pistons to lower the compression ratio, and surely change the camshaft for a blower/turbo camshaft ....But a lot more things are involved in a turbo/carburated combination....good luck

There are alot of kits being made that are 'almost' bolt and go. Check out turbomustangs they have alot of info and also a cool DIY section- You can spend days in there- I have.
Good luck

Reverse dome pistons to drop compression to around 8-8.5 static, find a stock EFI cam works wonders with a turbo car. EFI is the way to go. and get some really good (read-MLS) head gaskets & ARP head studs. As far as turbos go a street twin 57mm kit would get you where you wanna be. Check out some good shops. Good Luck!

 i would lower the compression ratio, thats number one 9.0 or less go with a hydraulic roller cam if you have the provision's f-cam or talk to Jay allen for a custom grind, and i would go with a single pt76 or twin 61's i think that the 57s are going to be too small for what your going to do  and run out of steam on the big end and for how fast you want to go.me personaly i would tak with banard newton at www.quicktimeturbosystems.com he is awesome and he runs a windor based twin turbo carbed car and is runing where you are looking to run,   i am in the middle of doing a turbo build 351w with a single pt74 turbo with a .96 exhaust housing, so i know quite a bit about the turbo magic
