Default VAZ 21011, Honda Engine, VW Turbo

Before I begin i am beginner in terms of building up cars so I would like to learn abit more. Essentially the situation I'm in is that i have access to a 6th Gen European Honda Accord from 2001 (2l flat 4), the engine is the F20A8, a slightly smashed up VW Golf (mk4) 1.9l Turbo Diesel and a VAZ 21011. Essentially my family is in the situation where since the cars are quite old now and will most likely be sold off in parts. I had the idea that'd i'd be nice to put the honda engine in the VAZ, upgrade the suspension etc etc. Essentially make a nice little sports car. There are many questions regarding this project, one is weather the diesel turbo would run with the Honda engine (the turbo is the Garrett GT1749VB) and so on. My grandfather will be able to help me quite abit with this since he's done engine swaps before and knows how to do this sort of project, but i would like to get some knowledge before we begin.
A sporradic this post has turned out to be, but here's what i want to know first:
-would the turbo work with the engine (since its used to much lower RPM's) and what adjustments need to be done.
-what needs to be done apart from roll cage, reduction in weight etc to better the cars handling and performance.
Open to any suggestions or ideas, thanks in advance

Short answer: No. Long answer: noooooooo.

Given enough money anything is possible. But in this case you'd need to fabricate a Honda engine to fit in a VAZ with no aftermarket support, which means you'd have to be good at welding or pay someone to do it, then make that run. THEN, you'd have to make the turbo from the VW fit and fabricate up all the tubing for that and a manifold of some sort.

Simply put this project would be hundreds of hours and there's no guarantee it will work, and it probably won't work well if it did.

Maybe if you really know what you're doing or don't terribly care if it runs like a pig. I've seen some similarly weird stuff, The Roadkill guys from Motor Trend Channel stuck a Chevy 4.3L V6 into a 240Z and then strapped a Ford Power Stroke Diesel turbo on it:

It actually ran and made like 400 WHP.

Very interesting build but these guys are professional tinkerers. Do not underestimate the amount of time, patience, and skill this will take.
