Probably not the answer yet but I'm sure its better than the non turbo.

Too H-E-A-V-Y.

Too complex with trying to adapt a computer system.

Too expensive.  By the time you engineer a PSRU, engine mount, fuel system, several propellers and all of the computer crap, you could have bought a brand new 912.

And a turbo adds a lot of extra heat which compounds the issue.
