Turbo 220D??? Can you do it?

I wanted to see if anybody has heard of putting a turbo on a 220D Motor?
If so what work needs to be done? Can you take a turbo kit from a 240 Turbo and put it on directly?

Anything can be made to fit with some cutting, welding, and/or fabricating. Keep the turbo small for that car, and waste gate design best for it. Look at some of the threads here there was one I saw with some pics and he did a pretty good job getting it done. You only need enough for 7-10 psi boost so keep it small these aren't stock made turbo so be careful. Check out www.turbobygarrett.com for some info. I don't know if any have done on a 220D on this forum but I'm in the process of rebuilding my motor for my 72' 220D and I will be fabricating the turbo system myself. It's easier if you are a mechanic like myself or have a buddy who owns a shop to get work done. It could be costly for custom fabrication if you just go to a shop walk-in. Bottom line, yes it can be done but I'm not sure if just a swap would work without some work.
