That is a VERY vague question. If you can fab it up, anything can be installed. Whether it is properly matched to the engine is another thing altogether.

What is it going on, if you try it? Ag turbo won't always be a good match for a street truck if that is what you're thinking.

I think there are a lot of other options out there that will suit your needs much better! One thing you need to think about is resale value! Your don't wanna shoot yourself in the foot!

Won't be a good combo, for the app.

ok thanks guys!!

Then most likely, if i did decide to put one on it.I would have a small boost build up too.

Might be less boost. Or, if it does increase, it is because it is more restrictive. OEM turbos can be found dirt cheap if you know where to look and depending on what you are looking to get.

Converting to a used Holset VGT for a 3rd gen truck is pretty cheap, if you know how to do a little fab work.

Don't know about the cost of the actuator for the exhaust brake function, but I bet he built the set up for it for less than $600. The turbos are REALLY cheap on ebay.

Thats neat tho!! Seriously i didnt think they would be that cheap but i went on ebay last night and found a VGT turbo on a 12valve and he wanted $300 dollars but the catch is it was used. Ol speaking about turbo's have you heard of a HX55? Someone im talking to he wants to get a stock hx35 and convert it to twins with the hx55. Im thinkin that hx55 is probably a 65 or a 68 inducer. Even if he did, that hx35 couldnt surpport over 40-45psi of boost.Without gernading it but i think it wouldnt be a good match? Then also too i dont know much about turbo's either.
