'81 luv/2.0turbo swap

So I recently acquired a totaled 2008 Solstice GXP for a swap I've been dreaming about for the past 2 years. The engine/transmission is going into a bagged 1981 Chevy luv. I've own the truck for a little over 2 years, its been bagged for a little over a year. Original paint and interior and I really don't have any plans to do either for a little while, I kinda like the survivor look. Here is a before and after picture. I'm excited to get this swap started.

So the LNF swap is no longer an option. I've shifted gears and decided to run an LE5 and turbo it later. The direct injection on the LNF requires either to hack into the firewall or the core support and I'm not willing to do either. Here are a couple of pictures of the mock up truck and engine. I'm using a Colorado 5 speed with a Solstice bell-housing. Just minor trimming to the floor board for the shifter needed.
