Empire Diesel has a t4 mount kit, but its pricy for what it is. Ive been thinking of trying it but Im holding off till next summer to play with the turbo. As soon as Empire releases the bracket and pulleys to run a procharger Im gonna be running a D1SC at about 10-12lbs and next summer I will install bigger injectors and custom tunes. I was thinking of trying either a gt35 or a gt4088 thrust bearing turbo. Its alot bigger than stock and should still boost pretty fast with the supercharger setup as the low pressure unit. Depends on how much injector i run tho to which turbo Ill choose. I need to get some headstuds and valvesprings and pushrods before I go over 40psi so I dont do any damage to anything. But if nobody else has done anything when I get around to doing it ill take some pics and post it up on here.

Ya no problem. It would be pretty easy to do, Its really just running the feed and drain oil lines to and from the turbo to the stock pedestal locations and maybe make a base plate kind of like a egr block off plate but it would have the two holes tapped for the oil lines. Also you would want to brace the turbo, Realistically thats the hardest part depending on how big the turbo you chose to use and how the centersection of the turbo is. You can always just replace some of the bolts with longer bolts and brace it like a superchager on a gas motor to give you an idea, and then just weld that to the plate that you made in the location that still allows adequate cooling and keeping the turbo away from rubbing on stuff or in the wrong location. Also youll have to get rid off the one piece turbo outlet elbow/ intake Y with an aftermarket setup like the cmf+ manifolds or custom made. Especially if your changing the way the turbo sits compared to stock you might have to have custom hot side intercooler tube made up and intake hose made up too. Its alot more work than just making a mount for a turbo, but not to hard to tackle for someone with adequate tools and basic knowledge of required skills to fabricate things...
