Remember, the turbo motor is specially built and lubricated (oil sprayers)
to take the extra grunt of the turbo.  A non-turbo motor may not hold up
well to that kind of abuse.  Additionally, you haven't mentioned the
wastegate...  The easiest way I can think of would be to get a complete
turbo car and start swapping parts.  There are a lot of controls/pieces,
parts that you'll need to do a decent job on this conversion.
