I know it has been vaguely covered here in a couple build threads but it seems to consist of a c223-t turbo manifold or a custom fabbed one. The most recent one i saw also had a custom made intake manifold not sure if thats necessary or not im not a diesel guy. But there are a couple threads on here if you do a search
do not expect to run a lot of boost the non turbo engine can't take it you will be limited to something like 5-7psi with the stock rods.. talk to oldestisizuist or joeisuzu they are the ones to know with second gen luvs

This is a frequently-asked question. I suggest that you make sure your engine is performing up to specs before even thinking about a turbo. It might just need a problem fixed, and then you'd be satisfied with its performance. Adding a turbo to an engine that's got a problem is masking the real issue, and inviting trouble.

Why don't you start by telling us about your truck. Is it 2wd, or 4wd? 4-speed, 5-speed, or auto? Long bed, or short?

Next, how does it currently perform, and what kind of mileage are you getting? Has performance or fuel economy gotten worse since it was brand new? (You may not know the answer to that one if you're not the original owner)
