Stupid question

This is a dumb question I think but a guy I know at work wants to know what the turbo off an 8V92 SS Detroit will do to his engine. Lots of boost or blow his oil pan off. He as an '00 PSD with a manual. I thought telling him how much work it would be just to get it to fit would convince him to drop it but I guess not.

Mods are a bully dog triple dog I think and gauges and I think thats mostly it. He has some stage ones but has never installed them!

And Discuss

Well......I'm sure he's gonna have to do some more modifying than just Stage Is. He'll have to do some fueling mods, ditch the BullyDog & get himself a DP or TW!

Yeah, sounds like it's got bad news written all over it!

Can you even get a turbo that big to spool up enough to deliver that kind of boost on a little engine like ours?

I imagine it'd have to be some serious exhaust pressure! Boring would just be the beginning. What would it take to build up that kind of exhaust press? Higher compression pistons or lower?

if it was TOO big, the lag would terrible, it may give him less performance than his turbo now

it takes a supercharger right below it on a 2 cycle motor and i really dont think you would build that much boost. i think it would be super slow to boost up also
