I think that any engine that wasn't designed to have a turbo , supercharger from factory, will blow up, or shorten life span in time considerably. You need to consider compression ratios, carb needs to go before intake on turbo, more fuel on carb is not that simple because it will only need to ad fuel as the boost increases. oil cooling, where you get the Oil press from, oil lubrication on buttom of piston, your current pistons and rings condition. I think most benz pistons are hyperrutectic,(alloy blend) so they won't blow up that easy, but the rings will crack, connecting rods will crack. head gasket will blow hole letting water in engine if it's not in good shape. etc etc etc.
turbo240 tried a very long and detailed project of putting a turbo on a 240D and he blew the rings and lost compression. Even though it's a diesel and not gas like yours it should have held up right. but unfortunately no it didn't have the proper lubrication to handle the heat and pressures.
