Turbo 528i questions

So I've been looking into it and I haven't seen much info on it. It's been done before so it's definitely doable.
What makes turbocharging these cars so difficult?
Drop a m5x into an e30 and you can turbo it to 900hp and it just takes it.
Can anyone shead some light on this for me?
I know supercharging would be easier. I don't want a v8 5 series. And I'm really attached to my e39 so please don't suggest for me to buy a different car.
