I have an Patrol MQ SD33 engine. My question is:
Can I fit a turbo from an SD33T engine ?
Do I need to modify anything ?
How difficult is it ?

My brother looked at this some time ago, and ended up fitting a set of extractors and a decent exhaust system instead. Less to go wrong out in the bush and pretty much the same power as the factory turbo. A properly set up aftermarket turbo would give more power. The problem with the SD33 comapred to the SD33T is that the non-turbo motor doesn't have the strengthened bottom end, so you increase the risk of crankshaft failure (still a pretty small risk though).
