Default Good junkyard turbo for b230ft

Hi guys! I'm planning a build for an '89 740 turbo. And I'm trying to make the the most power that I can on a budget, the build would consist of an '89 b230ft (may upgrade to 13mm rods later if necessary), ported and polished 530 head, V cam, bigger intercooler with necessary piping, and a 3" turbo back exhaust. Now where I'm stuck is what turbo I should choose as the I know the stock turbo is quiet anemic, but I can't afford to buy something brand new to slap in, so I would much prefer something I could pull from a junkyard/pick-n-pull. I would like something that would get me to atleast the 250hp range, but I would love to venture into the 300s. I live in Canada if that helps, should I pull a turbo from something like a Ford 7.3 turbo diesel or would that just be way too big? Sorry if I sound a bit turbo clueless, I've always been an N/A guy. Thank you in advance for your help!

when you can make your own header, you could try a TD05 16G from a mitsubitsi EVO

good for a quick spool and 300hp. only problem its not a t3 flange. so its not easy bolt on.

15G from an 850 once clocked is capable of 250ish.

I've got a Holset HE351CW I'd sell for cheap.

If you're pulling a stock diesel turbo in the yard, a good rule of thumb is to double the displacement of the gas motor you want to boost, and look for a stock diesel turbo in that range. The HE351CW is from a 5.9 Cummins and is a little on the large side of that rule of thumb, but people have great results with them.

15g hotside 19t coldside like mine . Or 15g all around.

Im stuck around 200+ hp because of blown turbo or something of the sort. Gl going past 250. Most people are happy around there but i think you start hitting the limitation of the b230ft tractor motor and ecu. I think its perfect for a budget though.

15G at 16psi w brown tops is a lot of smiles per mile.

Or marry a Ford 60 trim compressor to a volvo garrett hotside. Just did this, and it should flow to the 300-325hp range. Any more that that and it really starts to tax the efficiency of the 60 trim T3.
Thats when you pull an S200 schwitzer airwerks off the shelf...

I like the sound of this, I think I might throw in a 15g for now and get a 19t when I'm willing to do some work on the bottom end.
