How to get 87-88 power out of 85

I was just wondering,what does it take to give an 85 turbo coupe the 87's power?Do you just add an intercooler off of a 87?or is there more to it?I just wondered how difficult it would be.Thanks for any help!

Thats basically it. I dont remember if you need to grind on the outlet to make it round.
The intercooler allows the boost to be run over 10 psi. The 87-88 makes their 190 hp at 15psi.
