    I Don't foresee any thing good coming from putting an ls crank in a gsr gone turbo!-

    There is nothing wrong with that if you already have it and the little bit that it changes helps alot all motor and even more under boost. The LS is weaker though and you will have to plug the oil squirters to keep them from hitting the crank. With the forged units you will use for the boost you won't need them anyway so no big deal. Use LS length rods. I was about to do this but decided not to rape my spare LS block for the parts in the end. Tit for tat though, with the turbo already making so much more power I don't know that it would be worth the endevor. It's done mostly in N/A setups.
