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
