how big is too big?

so here's the plan....i have a 292 from a 1963 ford f250....i also have a turbo from an international semi truck......my thoughts are to put them together....i know the 292 doesnt have enought air to spool up the semi turbo so i thought about shooting a smaller turbo into the semi turbo then into the engine....any thoughts? how much boost before things start to break? laugh all you want im just a college kid spending dead week plotting my next great endevor. :p any input would be greatly appreciated. thanx. :)

Re: how big is too big?

Fit it up. Have a go.. Petrol engine's require bigger turbo compared to diesels..
Depending on type, size, application? Most diesel turbo's are more efficient at higher levels..
Try it ?? If it doesn't work.. Then a new Master Power T70 is one of the cheapest turbo's you can buy and about the right size..
Btw if engine has stock rotating assembly??
Keep boost low.. I figure? Your going blow through carb ??
