Re: T1 piston set !
The simple answer is no.
What you asked is a bit of a loaded question. Let me explain why...
Your GLH is an 85, which means it will have the 445, or 287 bathtub head on it. There was only one turbo piston offered on that engine.
By the time the T2 came around, Chrysler had switched to the 782 swirl head, and those take a different piston. Also, the T1's are all pressed pin rods(until 89 when the T1 went to a 2.5), while the T2 are floating pin, so they use different pistons as well. But they are very different than your pistons. The T1 & T2 swirl head pistons look very similar, and the piston crown is about the same, but they are different due to the different piston pin arrangement.
So basically, you need a set of early bathtub head turbo pistons...
But also be aware that if your long term goal is to build a common block motor, you will need a different tune, because the spark map for the swirl head is completely different than the bathtub head.
