Question 2nd gen Turbo upgrades

Ok so im a NA guy i have a 86 NA rx7 ive sunk about 15 grand into alot of it cosmetics and getting alot of replacement pieces. well I wrecked it now i got another body so im swopping everything into a new shell.

I really wanna Do A Turbo rx7 next So im askin around while i fix the current one.
Ive done some research I got the true dual racing beat NA exhaust on mine now i know ill have to do the turbo racing beat setup. BNR Turbo upgrade, my question is after a turbo up grade and exhaust whats nxt in line?
What kind of intercooler
boost controller, fuel pump, injectors, ecu, ya know anything will help
New to turbo scared to build one and over boost it and blow it to bits.
i dont want the top of the line parts but i dont want junk either. any ideas what it would cost to hit 350 to 400hp what ever is a safe to drive frequently. I dont know everyone through 2 cents in huh?

IMO, no need for two turbos on a 13BT. Mazda used a twin sequential setup on the FD to improve response at low engine RPM. Many FD owners have gone with a single turbo setup. You might find some good advice here:https://www.nopistons.com/single-turbo-discussion-13/
