83 non turbo 300d motor swap to turbo and other stuff

hey everyone i finally found the benz that i want a 83 5speed 300d and im putting together enough to put down a down payment and take it completely the week after.
I was wondering what are my options when it comes to swaping out the motor in order to drop a turbo in. Im figuring my best bet would be to swap out for a turbo motor that fits in my chassis. how would i go about finding out what turbo motors fit into the car? i would love to be able to put a mid 90s motor. What should i be looking to replace or reinnforce? like the hoses fuel injectors and what not (i'm going to be producing my own biodiesel)
Also i hear they had some sort of hydrolic rear suspension the owner removed it would it be worth it reinstalling the hydrolic suspension? are there any things i should be looking for? the guy is 175+ miles away I want to make the minimal amount of trips possible thanks!

Hmmm. The W123 300D with the OM617.952 ran from 1982-1985. It should already have a turbo.
