the a/r housings are a bit bigger than gas turbos. PLus they are set up as compound units if I remember correctly, not individual turbos per group of cylinders. Spool-up time is also affected with injection timing as well. i believe if you start the injection process earlier in the crank revolution, its like increasing timing in a regular car. A little is good, but too much is bad. Causes extremely high pressure spikes that even a diesel cant withstand...and you lead to cracked pistons, broken rods, etc...
