Don't wait until something breaks. It will cost that much more to replace the trashed parts like the block and cam, oil pan, oil pickup etc from a flailing rod.
If you plan to make 400-450 I'd get a set of hybrids, head studs, and something like an H2E turbo or one of the turbos that WOP has available that fits on the Hypermax H2E install kit. You might need a 17° hpop as well depending on how yours is.
If you want the option to go more than that I'd pull the engine and do a rebuild. I'd have the decks trued, new pistons, bore job, have the crank checked and turned if need be, Crower rods, ARP main studs, new valves, new valve guides, new valve springs set up to properly take the amount of boost you think you'll be running, head studs, and fire ring head gaskets. That should pretty much get the engine where it needs to be. to not have to wory about anything letting go in the bottom end. Then I'd go with a set of BD code injectors and an oil system. For the turbo I'd contact either David Lott at Diesel Innovations about his GT42 kit or WOP and tell them what you are looking to do and they can set you up with a turbo kit.
You are going to need a built transmission what ever you do. I'd give Brian at BTS a call for that.
