Not a chance. Diesel injectors operate at much higher pressures and are about 4 times the size of gas injectors.

A very deep wallet. Why not look into a supercharger instead?

On the gas 5.9 mabe but it would take for ever to spool and would be a bad fit. Plus by the time you got done with the rest of the set up it would cost the same as if you just got the right size turbo to start with. If you want f.i. power cheap just spray the thing no lag huge torque n2o was made for trucks

I agree on the nitrous. Could get pricey to operate, tho, if you like to show off.

I'm sure you could get it to work but at what point will it make usable boost will it stay in boost when you shift gears or will you be waiting for it to spool back up I don't everything especially on this type of motor but when your done you will still have about the same in a sts universal kit as a peaced together one or spend 600 or 700 bucks on a n2o kit and go just as fast
