you wouldnt have enough exhaust gas coming out of the manifold to push the turbine on a tractor turbo to do any good.

ah, yeah, you may be able to run it as a second turbo, but you would have to mount that thing in the bed of the truck. lol not sure there's enough room to mount it as a second one under the hood

Well if you don't mind spooling it up everytime you take off, A guy in my area put an ISM turbo on a powerstroke, so I'm sure its possible to put one on a cummins. If you have a turbo off an ISC 8.3L (HX40) it should work...
