guess it depends on what turbo you run, boost your pushing and how much fuel your pushing

That's not a simple question. There's countless variations of turbos. Are you wanting to run it as a single or twins? What kind of fueling are you going to do? There's a lot more info needed. But as far as running it without studs, not likely at all. You'd want studs and a ring'ed head when moving that much air and pressure.
there is no such thing a standard "semi turbo". What do you have in mind? Whats available to you?
Some turbos on semis are wastegated and some are not. You would have to find a way to mount the turbo to your manifold (they are not T3 flanged), make a downpipe, and fab an intercooler pipe. After that you will need injectors to spool the turbo. I am quite sure that that large of a turbo with injectors big enough to spool would definitely need studs.
What do you want out of your truck? In general, a semi turbo would be too large to daily drive as a single, and there would be no point unless your goal was a large dyno number with no driveability
2001 RCLB, 4x4, 5-speed. Base model, with some extra stuff.

well i was kind of thinking maybe a twin turbo or compound set up. i still have yet to do studs but could i do a semi turbo, not sure what kind, with a stock hx35? or would my hx35 restrict the capabilities of the semi turbo?
each one of those trucks have like 10 different engine options rangin from 250 to maybe over 500 hp some have singles some are twins. and you can put a giant turbo on w/o getting more fuel your not going to make much more boost. its not as simple as you might think. like somebody else said there isn't a standard turbo, there isn't even a standard engine or even a standard make of engine, it could be a cat, cummins, mack , volvo, mercedes, detroit, and so on.
