Found this while digging around today looking for info. on boosted applications for nailheads, seeing what others have done. I was kind of surprised to see the factory had made a turbo boosted 425. http://www.macsmotorcitygarage.com/2016/03/03/secrets-of-the-buick-nailhead-v8/

 

I am sure people have improved on it or modified things from there, but it interesting to see the different directions even the factory could have gone.

Knowing Buick's penchant for turbo charging, the last engine pictured could have conceivably gone into production IF GM would have had a transmission that would handle the 650 lb. ft. of torque.    One can only imagine what some of the newer turbochargers could get from this engine if installed today.
