    It can be done, it's when you want to do big power that you have to open the engine up and do some work

    he is probably using a decompression head gasket essentially a bodge way of doing the compression drop, if you are going to convert it either run a low boost kit or change the compression probably

    A compressor or turbo increases the pressure in the cylinder, If you run too much pressure then you will create detonation, pre ignition of the air/fuel mix cause the cylinder to work against the power stroke instead of working with it, ending up with a wholed piston or conrod,

    To create 600 you will need to run around the 15 psi mark, I would not run decompression head gaskets,

    To do it probably you will have to change the compression ratio to achieve 400 you are looking at a min of 9.1 and a optimum of 8.1

    If you want around a 30 % BHP horse power gain you can run around 7-9 psi of boost on stock internals and compression,

    Why dont you just go for the m3 engine with running gear?
    If you turbo your car,you will prob to have upgrade brakes etc..
