Turbocharging the M3?

To the techs and mechanics who actually know the M3 engine/bay well, will a proper turbocharger system even fit? If it does, what would be the biggest challenges/obstacles to make it work? Best guess when something might be available ..

Btw..just got spanked by a FI'd S2000

turbocharging the e9x is going to be big $$$ and take a lot of time to develop

I've been doing a lot of researching and have taken my car apart many time on a lift trying to figure out where placement of 2 turbos would be. The space available to place 2 turbos in the traditional location is possible but only with extremly small turbos and there is no space for equal-lengthular(I thnk that's how you spell it) exhaust manifold; it would have to be a log style manifold (not the best). A properly sized single rear mount turbo would be the best all around option. I've got something in the works so keep your eye's open.
