not an expert on the L6.. but my thinking it should be a bolt on... as for compression... CC the chambers your self.. and use one of the many on line compression calculators...

you may be surprised at the out come...

Im not sure putting a 250 head on a 194 would increase the compression ratio, but it would add flow?
Alot of people put 194 heads on 250's to increase compression, or put a 292 head on a 250 to increase the flow... i may be wrong though.
You can buy an exhast manifold that hooks up to a turbo through e-bay, but they are kinda expensive.
But i'd drop the integrated head, for a pre 75 head, rockauto sells them, i bought one and am really happy with it.
But i've seen some results on turbo'd 6's and it didnt really seem like it produced any better numbers than a well put together inline N/A...
