Some of these prices are high and you can shop around for better deals with no problems.. I had some deals cut but did not want to list the pricing so I went with list prices in most cases...

$2200 = 106mm turbo
$2400 = intercooler
$900 = 60mm wastegate
$720 = injectors
$250 = throttle body
$50 = TPS sensor
$90 = MAP sensor
$15 = Oil drain
Total for turbo parts = $6625

$1550 = 304 SS tubing, aluminum tubing, V-clamps and Misc..
$300 = 304 SS header flanges
$600 = 2 merge collectors
$200 = Crossover pipe
Total for header and intercooler parts = $2650
Total to have this stuff done by a shop will run between $8000 - $16000

Pistons = $500
Cam = $400
FAST Unit = $3300
Fuel Pump = $850
Water cell = $150
Waterpump = $300
Convertor = $1100
Boost controller = $200
CO2 bottle and misc = $400
Total for motor mods = $7200

Grand total for you to convert will be (doing header.cooler work yourself)... $16475
Having header/cooler work done for you = $21825 (low end)
Having header/cooler work done for you = $29825 (high end)

Do the work yourself and you will need..

Tig welder = $1800
Tig misc = $400
Grinder/sander = $200
Bandsaw = $600
Total for tools needed = $3000

Total for all tools and doing work yourself is $19475

That's a pretty good break-down, but I think we could knock about $2,500 off of that. You could go to blow-through until you can afford the EFI swap.
