Default Twin Turbo 3.8 ?!?!

When I was working today, a car salesman from one of the dealerships down the street came in. I stupidly said I was looking for a car (I think it'* something deep down psychologically...) Anyways, trying to get out of his spiel, I told him I liked Bonnevilles. He proceeds to tell me how reliable the 3.8 is, blah blah blah (preaching to the choir, lol ) But he ALSO tells me that he heard they put twin turbos on one, thus making a monster out of it. Can anyone substantiate this blatently tenuous rumor?

There was only a turbo on like 200 Bonnevilles in 1989. Its been posted on here. The chances of you finding one is like the chance of me having a GF by tomarrow. Pretty much nill. I think hes thinking about the Buick Regal Gran National GNX. The fastest production car of the 80s.
