I was just wondering if anybody here has any personal experience with using turbo diesel truck turbos as a cheap budget build. I have a chance to get a good Garrett from an '01 7.3 powerstroke, and was wondering if it was even worth the time. It would be going on a 5.4L 2v, just wondering if it's to much turbo, or if there's horror stories or anything like that.

Diesel turbos work just fine, the RPM the engine spins has nothing to do with how the turbo operates, plenty of diesel turbos on mustangs. Just make sure it's sized right for the car.

might consider resizing the exhaust housing I think it's going to be too big for you, But if it works I'd like to see a good budget build.
