I just picked up a 2006 V70R and the turbo has a lot of wear and is leaking oil. I am planning on upgrading the intercooler and intake and I don’t want any fitment/compatibility issues with the upgrades. I talked to my brother-in-law, who’s a mechanic, and he said it would be best if I get a whole new aftermarket turbo kit. But I could not seem to find one, I was wondering if I was missing something in plain sight.

That of course is if you wanted to send it, but stay with bolt ons. There are tons of options.

Yeah, but this is just a turbo, I was looking for a full kit with an intercooler, intake, charge pipe, etc.

Get that turbo, and get a DO-88 or Snabb intercooler+kit as well and call it a day lol.
Don't replace the intake. The stock snorkel-style intake is absolutely more than enough, and any "CAI" you'll find will actually be pulling in hot air - not worth it at all
