Default Preparing for turbo

I'm planning on boosting my 90' with a kit soon and I'm wondering what parts i'll need to run around 200-250 hp. I know i'll need a new upgraded clutch and maybe a new rear(im probably gonna run it til it blows up then upgrade). Are there any other weak points i should address before I begin to go past 200hp?

Reading skills are your biggest weak point right now.

If only there was an FAQ sticky that covered a lot of the basics of going turbo.

I think this was simultaneously posted both here, and at that other miata site.
