Default considering a project

I was looking at an older buick A 1991 buick rivera as it turns out. I looked it over It is a nice looking coupe don't see alot of them out and they are pretty cheap to pick up especially if i find one with a blown engine or a ton of miles. they already have the 3800 series 1 I think a series II sc swap would be fun. I understand that swaps can have there hang ups but I think it would be a fun build and would make one heck of a sleeper some suspension mods. tho I would also like to do a turbo set up on one of thoes 3.6 direct injectes cts engines stock with 300 hp. Dohc and turbos are a matchmade in heaven with the manual tranny hmmm something to ponder and price out although i have heard that just like the northstar and 5.3 the new engines are nearly impossible to tune
