Those would all go over well. You would end up with an early offset car, but would at least have turbo running gear.

Some minor differences:
- 86 spindles aren't quite as strong as 87+ ones.
- Your 15" Fuchs won't fit anymore. Stock ones for the '86 turbo have special offsets and are 16", compared to 911 ones.
- Caliper piston diameters are slightly smaller for the front.
- No ABS if the option was on your car (unlikely).

See if the brake master cylinder has a cylindrical piece on it. This should be on there as a proportioning valve for the turbo brakes. NA's don't have this valve. The master cylinders are also different between the NA and turbo. Make sure you have a turbo MC.
