With these combos you can turn the boost up alot since its so low compression if its the computer controlled version. Get the turbo short block with forged pistons and use a 2 plug ranger head with roller followers. Do not use the ford motorsport cam its not for boosted apps.
The stock cam is good but some are better.

Stock head works as well. A little more compression is no issue so might want to try to up it a little. They are very low cr until the boost hits. But stock they willusally take 20 plus psi of boost. And make north of 300 hp with ported manifold and open exhuast. Injectora are good fuel pump will need to be strong and look for a svo PE computer off ebay. I might be able to find you one fi you get disperate. Also source the largest vane air meeter. My brother has a merkur that will scare the life out of you. Mostly because it never stocks spinning the tires
