turbo from a diesel

has anyone ran a turbo or 2 from a diesel such as an f250 turbo diesel motor
on a custom 302 or 351 setup.

if so how did it work such as power, quarter mile times, etc.

if not why not or why wouldnt you.


im trying to build alot of power myself as cheap as i can.

i would like to build a twin setup , the company im looking at for turbos has a hybrid turbo that can produce 300 - 500 horse , but its 699 bucks and buy time i buy 2 i wont have the dough left over for other things such as bov, wastegates, cooler, etc,etc,

if i buy 1 i wont be in the power range i want but will have plenty of money to finish the project within a few months.
so thats why i ask if anyone has used a turbo from a diesel, they are cheap from a junkyard.

let me know suggestions and specs, and whatever else you think i should know. i want to go big numbeers but want to stay in a small budget. budget not to exceed 1500 bucks.

unless i can find a diesel turbo dirt, dirt cheap.

be carefull with ford turbos as some of them are variable geometry. its become popular to use cummins turbos such as hx35 and 40's they are mede by holset and are very good turbos. I have heard very good results, but they are definately not a gas turbo.

If you are doing a single, a holset HX40 Will work
you will want to find a garrett style exhaust housing
in the correct size for your application ie a .84 a/r
or .96 will work on a 302.
