It'll probably run, but not very well, and since the turbo engines are low
compression you'll be left with far less power than the N/A version had so
even if it works it's not safe to drive it like that. Just have the turbo
rebuilt, or sell the car to someone who will and get a NA model.

You'd need a front pipe as well as having to adapt the smaller diameter
front pipe to your catalytic convertor, and extend the wire for the
oxygen sensor which will have to be repositioned. You'd have to plug up
the oil delivery and return orifices in the block. You'd need to figure
out some way to get the air intake pipes from the air mass meter to the
intake manifold. In the end, you'll probably end up spending more and
end up with a much poorer car than if you just replaced the turbo.
