Actually, ALL of the Turbo Buicks cranks are non twisted forgings with rolled fillets on the crankpins. If you own a turbo buick, and it doesn't have a forged crank, its not original, and probably not safe to drive.
I much prefer a MAF setup for the fuel injection, especially since I want the car to be something more of a long distance cruiser. In that light, I have heard all kinds of good things about FAST's XFI system. I'm also considering a Mallory Hy-Fire ignition, as it offers many of the same features as an MSD, but without the pricetag.
The stock compression is 8:1. I know I had the compression upped, but nothing significant, to about 8.5:1. I know I told the shop to not exceed 9:1. The cam is a Comp Hydraulic Roller Symmetrical cam.

I don't intend to get into playing with the boost levels, not unless its really necessary. Considering that the turbo is easily capable of 15 lbs at peak, I've got more than enough huff to get some decent numbers out of it.
I figure simply improving the cars ability to move air with a mandrel bent exhaust should be more than enough to make this car worthy of its V8 slayer legend.
As far as porting or portmatching, the Turbo Buick, especially a "hot-air" or non-intercooled (84-85 model years) has an asthmatic intake, and anything that can be done to smooth out the air flow is a huge benefit
