No but it wouldn't be hard too! We had one on B-7200 4wd with D950 motor that we pulled with. Japanese engineers got a kick out of it when we fired it up! Turning 6500-7000 rpms.

The turbo/manifold assembly from a Euro spec Smart car is almost a bolt up fit for the older D600 and its varients used in Cub Cadets and Kubotas, seen that done a few times.   Its also a small enough turbo to actualy build boost.  Prior to that the only real small turbos was from a couple motorcycles and the little diesels dont move enough CFM of air to build boost with those.  If you do go for it, make sure to put a pyrometer in the exhaust so you dont have a meltdown under boost, or lift the head and blow the gasket.  Mike
