Sure. Whether or not its cost effective, compared to just buying a 951....depends on how you source all the components, what labor you do yourself, etc. Find a totaled 951, wish a smashed up tub, and swap over. The turbo is quite a different animal compared to the NA. Internals, plumbing, suspension, gearing, braking, and aerodynamics are different. Ive owned both. My current 951 is a boosted 3.0. Bout 400 to the wheels. Big gains are possible with boost.
