I think the biggest issue would be sourcing the headers, motor mounts, power steering bracket, and alternator modifications if needed (I have a Powermaster 150 am single wire).
Holley has come out with many systems to use for swaps in different years and versions of these cars.

As for costs of the actual junk yard parts, that depends on how junk yard you want to go. Radiator can be cheap or 1500 dollars, or some might say that 1500 is cheap.

But a good open source information sharing site for everyone to use is:

Getting back to the LS combination. For you guys interested in low buck junkyard LS builds. Jarretts full interior, daily driver, stock bottom end LQ9, SINGLE turbo, turned upside down exhaust manifolds, easily won drag week, easily won race week, LS Nova, on the same engine since built as far as I know. Looks pretty simple to me, 7.80s @ 173 MPH, 1.25 60s. Thats what turbo's do
Do you have the drivers side manifold connected to the turbo going under the back of the engine? Any pictures?
