Although the engine itself is not much different (pistons, exhaust valves, cam, and oil return port machined in block), the rest of the vehicle/system has quite a few changes. The cooling system is beefed up and an oil cooler added. The exhaust is unique from manifold to tailpipe. The fuel system on all Turbo cars were Lambda (maybe your '79 is already Lamda, some were). Your best bet would be to get a donor Turbo car if you want to do this. I am not a fan of "add on" kits - too many details end up being underdeveloped and you are likely to spend a bunch of money and be unhappy with the driveability and durability.
