Diesel turbos aren't always bad. Typically, they are made for very high boost...tyehy typically boost 1.2 bar or more and have very sturdy bearings.

Drawbacks is that they are made for diesel applications. Diesel engines have cooler exhaust gases and diesel turbos have often very big hot housings. So hot/cold side are missmatcheed for gasoline engines. They do work, but aren't optimal. Also, shafts are very heavy which means more lag. They do not stand high temperatures too well either.
