Most LeBarons at that time had the 2.2 Turbo 1....if they didn't take care of the car, it will be a piece of carp. The compression on the turbo cars are lower than the n/a models to start with. Leaky turbo seals are a very common thing to repair on these cars.
The A568 was called something else when it was behind the 3.0 V6. The bellhousing pattern between the two engines are completely different, so there is no cross-compatibility. A568s can be found behind the 2.5 Turbos and I think 2.2 Turbo 3 and Turbo 4 (yes, there are 4 different 2.2 turbo setups, T1 being the most common, T3 being the rarest).
