No point in adapting 20+ year old turbo technology that's very rare, and doesn't quite fit. Some members have done turbos, but not with the diesel parts that I know of. They've used more modern technology.

Now, if you're asking what aftermarket turbo and manifolds to get, someone else will have to answer that one.

The gas motor would be a lot easier.

But, the good thing about the diesels is you wouldn't have to worry about the fuel injection pump (in N/A form) not liking the addition of a turbo. That extra air is greatly beneficial and increases efficiency in the case of the diesel engine. Just have to make sure you aren't going crazy with fuel delivery to increase exhaust gas temperature and boost pressure on the indirect injection setup. Too high of temperatures is not something you want to see.
