What engine/trans combo do I have??

I just bought a semi-complete kit car and am trying to make sure the motor is what it is supposed to be. It is supposed to be a turbo Buick Grand National V6 but I can't find anywhere on the net where one came in a front wheel drive car. I can't find the VIN but the trans has "METRIC" and "Hydromatic Div of GM" embossed on the bottom of the pan. It looks like they have always been a combo because nothing has been cleaned up.

Any thoughts or suggestions as to how to identify this engine and trans?

Might Help

I used this site to help identify some of the parts and what I might need to restore properly.

They have a number of different parts. Almost anything GM.

Hope this might help. Let us know how it works out.
