I know a guy who knows a guy, apparently it worked pretty well. But nothing I'd try on an expensive car :O

I wouldn't try it...but my truck came out of the factory with a turbo anyway so I'm not too worried.

Turbos are pretty cheap nowadays. You can get a good setup for under 3 grand. But there are a lot of parts that you can't get off of a vacuum cleaner that are essential to a turbo. A good tune is always helpful, cold air intake, intercooler, downpipe, turbo manifold, blowoff valve...
