I Would say "Yes" [:D]
At the end of the day a turbo is a turbo, all have dump valves and waste gates.

No its not possible, the diesel does not have a throttled intake, this is required to create the manifold vacuum that opens the dump valve.
If you can throttle the intake then its possible, but it would be difficult and expensive to achieve.
