    Go for it! After many years of needing more power than my Ford 1720 (91CI) could develope I installed a turbo and couldn't be happier.
    I installed a waste gated Garrett GT-1752 that came off a SAAB. The installation is clean and the tractor now has the power to handle my 60" snowblower without bogging down.
    I turned the engine speed up to 2900 and the fuel up and it builds 8~10 lbs of boost. As for hp deveploped, don't know but it is significant!
    I don't use the additional power for extended periods to do the job of a larger tractor but to power thru tough spots when snowblowing or mowing. As with anything how you used it will determine the overall success of the project.

    I've always liked it when I hear stories like this of someone making something work like that 90cummins. Kudos!

    you may have to at least change your head gasket to the turbo spec model's gasket. they are usually the first weak link.

    No head gasket change is needed for mild hp increases, but retorquing the head would not be a bad idea.

    Any one here of a turbo on a 1715? If so, who does it and where are they located?

    Never heard of a tirbo on a 1715 Ford but it can be done.
    The turbo on my 1720 would probably work nicely on your 1715 but may be a bit slow to boost because your engine is 81cu in versus my 1720's 91cu in.
