Question about 1990 Chevrolet K1500
It is but not good, the turbo from a diesel has a lower compressor rate due to the diesel engine has a lower RPM ratting then your Stroker. The higher RPM your engine revs, the more of a restriction to your exhaust from the turbo causing your valves to over heat and then your burn a hole through them or your pistons.
A good size would be a T70 with a 0,96 AR exhaust and if your looking to get more power get the T76 with the 0.96 AR exhaust side. Guessing that the T70 should give you around 550 HP low boost (10 to 12 PSI) and about 600 HP (15 to 18 PSI) around 4000 RPM. Your compression should also be around 8.5:1, anything higher and your going to have detonation issues during your midrange and up and to nuts off your torque ratio that your just going to burn your tires during your boost stage.
Hope this helps explained the difference in diesel turbo and gas engine turbo and i vote for the T70B with 0.96 AR hot side.
Thank you for using fixya and good luck
