the oil pumps on d16y8 arent that good..
for a sohc to hold that much hp and not blow its gonna take some work
get head ported polished,new seals,valve job, upgrade cam(will help getting to 300hp), head studs, upgrade valve springs and retainers.upgrade pistons, piston rods. then from there you will need a tuned ecu. a good full turbo setup. then you will need to upgrade the motor supports.
and exhaust. upgrade the clutch possibly also the axles.(would have to see how much torque you will be producing)

there are different types.. and yea they should..
i believe crane cams are also a good choice..

and that turbo is to small^
look into more like a t3/t4

florida dont have emissions
upgrading the cams will help deliver that 300hp you want.
it will let the valves open more to let more boost in
