What about the LFX makes it..

look like it could run very well with twin turbos? A forum member claimed "The LFX looks like it was built for twin turbos".

They are probably talking about the integrated exhaust manifolds leaving room for small turbos mounted right next to the heads/block.

That's the LF3. It shares some features with the LFX, but we don't know many details at this point. The LF3 does have a lower compression ratio than the LFX, so that's a plus for a boosted application.

I was wondering if it had to do with the integrated exhaust manifold.

Both the LLT and LFX have some features that are nice for forced induction. The block is very rigid and the crank and rods are forged. Except for the high compression ratio, they are a lot like the LNF in the turbocharged Cobalts. The LFX having integrated exhaust manifolds just makes for a nice spot to mount smallish turbos. I would imagine someone will make a kit at some point.
