Default Laminar Vs Turbulent flow

Hi friends. If we assume Laminar flow, Pressure based transient solver for a flow which is actually turbulent then what will happen?
Can we get converge solution (May be not correct solution)?
How can we guess from residuals or some other monitoring parameter e.g lift coefficient curve, that the flow is actually not Laminar?
Thanks in advance.
