that is an automotive oxymoron. ,but hey anything could be possible what did you snag it off of a backhoe. since the turbo does'nt run on gas i would say it could, maybe it's all in the setup. research ,and compare in contrast to a non diesel turbo. may turnout to be one of those you do just to say you did it.

Dude I didn't understand you....to answer is probably not going to work, most gasoline engines will not produce enough exhaust gas flow to spool a turbo from a diesel engine (hence why they are on diesels)

some guys use the holset hx35 or hx40 turbos on fully built gsr's.
they seem to work very good but you have to think that these turbos dont run into their efficiency island until 20 psi, below that level its pretty much pointless and inneficient. on a built b-series or h22 yes.
what turbo are you talking about?

Diesel Turbo's will infact work on a gasoline engine but like Clutch master said, There wont be enough exaust gas to really get it spooling. a guy my brother knows is running one on a 2.5 L Gas engine. Got the turbo off of a Dodge Cummins Diesel. Im pretty sure a 1.5-1.8 litre wont produce enough exaust gas to even spool it enough.. The turbo lag would be un godly slow. But yes if u really wanted to you can bolt up a turbo off a diesel to a gas motor. just would suck.
