One more thing about turbos, which I hate as most everyone else: without a turbo you will run afoul of European emissions regulations (US, I don’t know). This might be a problem at the time of resale.
In the normal course of things you will never be chased on the high seas by the Coastguard to check on your emissions but, some day, they may become more strict.

As bad as hitting the turbo with high power right away is shutting the engine off without letting the turbo spool down and cool off in its oil bath. Turbos run at up to 300 thousand RPM and when shut down without oil to cool them down, they quickly bake the existing oil on to the bearings and you’ll go through turbos like oil filters. After running in the band where the turbo was engaged, let it idle for a few minutes to let the engine oil cool it down gently before shutting the engine down. Same goes for your car if it doesn’t have a supplementary electric oil pump.
