question about diesel turbos??

correct me if im wrong but arent turbos off deisels build differently to spool up differently with the deisel? what would happen if someone were to take one off a F350 turbo diesel and put it on a 5.0 for a junkyard build or something like that?

Yep !! Even seen a guy in MM&FF mag with a John Deer turbo.
