Easily done. Volvo turbo'd the 1721cc engine for some its 440, 460 and 480 models. A trip to the breakers should get you all the bits you need, or a complete engine to transplant.

not easy done! i have a volvo 440 turbo, but to convert from injection to carb, the inlet manifold fouls the exhaust manifold

The conversion I saw used the injection system for that reason.
