We have a peterbilt with a blown up 400 cummins,my friend said the other day hey why don't you put that turbo on your pickup?!! I just laughed but I wanted to ask the pros here can that even be done? Mine is a 99.5. Nv4500,strait pipe ,cold air intake and ,air dog raptor,stock injectors and vp44 I don't even think I would do it but I'm just curious
you would need a lot more fuel to spin that big of a turbo. And even then you'd have other issues

It has been quite a few years since I have looked under the hood with a BC400 but as I recall it is a pretty big turbo as others have said. Not only that the BC engines are 855 CID so that should tell ya something.

dude if you run an old charger off some blown up pete your asking for trouble in your pick up, one thing I have learned is if it looks cool and kinda seems like a good idea becuase a buddy suggested it, dont do it!. Like the guys above said with your mods you are no where close to having enough fuel to spool and even if you did you wouldnt like it around the street and it would run like garbage. The charger on there would be similiar to a K1 turbo, I have an old 85 359 pete with a big cam 4 in it as well and I wouldnt attempt to run that charger.
