As someone with a 10VT in their 80 and former 20V owner I can say  unless you 
intend to track the car a 20VT is overkill.  I would also  suggest you 
seriously evaluate your mechanical skills or bank account.  The  turbo swap is by no 
means a bolt in proposition.  Lots out there have done  it and may say it is 
easy.  If so, ask them how much they would charge for  doing the swap on your 
car.  Getting the engine in is probably the easiest  thing.  Installing a CIS 
and intercooler, decent exhaust system is much  tougher.  Aftermarket EFI is a 
great choice, but nothing out there is a  bolt in system.  Lots of little 
surprises and chances to screw up.
That said, the 10VT with low teens boost is pretty reliable, gets mid 20's  
MPG and is an absolute giggle to drive.  It will humble many cars and is  one 
of the best all time sleepers.  My 20V was plenty fast, but the turbo  10V has 
better power that starts at lower revs and pulls harder.  
Feel free to contact me off list for more details.  If you live near  Bucks 
County PA stop by for a test drive  too.
