    Sure, you have my permission. You can install turbo on anything, just a matter of how much money you want to spend.

    It was designed to run as is. If you want more power buy a diff machine. That turbo is designed for a gas car engine Exh housing size and comp specs won't be correct for a Diesel engine

    No thats actually the right turbo for his motor. Have to remember. In other countries they stuff small diesels into EVERYTHING possible. Lots of diesel izuzu's in the world.

    If that's the right turbo, you would still have to get more fuel into the engine. depending on the engine, taking your pump to a shop, or replacing your injectors. Then, you have to replumb your air intake system. If you can't just buy the parts that fit a turbo model of the same machine, you're better off just buying a machine with more power. There is more to balancing it out than it seems.

    I cant believe that a TL26 would be worth this kind of investment. I would take the money and use it to buy a different machine but to each his own.

    unless you are running at high altitude ? when you get it running right with more power then you have to worry with the drive train tearing itself apart with more hp than it was designed for . just like the speed shop says .. speed ain't nothing but money how fast you wan't to go$$$$$$

    Allot of other items would need to be changed when adding a turbo to a motor. Injectors, air intake, fuel pump, electronic re flash etc etc You can't simply add a turbo to motor and go. You would be hard pressed to justify the added cost of changing all of the items I mentioned ..your best bet would be to sell your current machine and find a turbo charged machine and buy it...you would be much further ahead in the dollars and cents Dept.
