I am jealous and will be buggin you a lot for advice once I am able to pull this off.
I had to hound the wrecking yards in the U.K. Here is a correspondence with the wrecker I ended up using.

Then I payd another $450 for a missing transmission mount, and shifter consul.
The exhaust needs to be upgraded, in my opinion, to accomadate the increase flow and minimize turbo lag. $500.
I chose to intercool the turbo. $650
Pyro and boost gages $150
