I wouldnt. Turbo and non-turbo engines are differnet inside where you cant see it. Lower compression on the turbo motor to allow for the added compression of the turbo. Most likely differnet rods, maybe a differnet crank. If you turbo a non-turbo engine you will wind up with a compression ration that is too high for pump gas, and other driveability problems
