but if you can get ahold of a GN drivetrain and put it in itd be an easy swap id imagine. and then yes, youd have a nice sleeper.
just to clarify, the motor is NOT the same and it would NOT be an easy swap to put the turbo parts on it.
As mentioned before, the GN is Rear Wheel Drive, and this car is Front Wheel Drive. The exhaust manifolds are routed different, the intake is different, and the mounting, block and internals are all different.
That being said, you could do a custom turbo kit, but you would have to get most of the parts made. There is one member who did make one for his 91 SSE (same body style as the lesabre) and it is currently for sale here. Search "Black Magic" and you should come up with info on the car.
