Unless you have a huge budget, trading up to a Cooper S will probably cost less and provide better performance and reliability.
The challenge with adding forced induction is the need to lower the compression and change the computer software to accommodate the increase in boost. The lubrication in the turbo engine is also different to accommodate the increased combustion temperatures. You should also add an intercooler which adds a further challenge. And the list goes on.
Sorry I don't have better news....
