Default Any experience with TD04HL-15T turbo?

Hi, I'm about to buy a turbo and before I buy it I had a few questions. I'm considering getting the TD04HL-15t from a Saab. I was wondering if anyone had any experience with these turbos. I just want a smaller turbo that will get me to around 200whp. It looks like it has a T3 flange with an odd 3 bolt pattern for the downpipe. I read somewhere that this turbo has an "internal bov" but I think that was some crap.

I was going to get a TD04L-13t from a WRX but the flange was not going to fit with my manifold (T3). Here are some pictures of the one I'm considering. Any help is appreciated.

Internal wastegate, not BOV.

And to answer your question, yes it will probably get you to 200 whp. Should spool fast too. Looks tiny.

I was running a TD04L-13T (WRX) and made 212 WHP.
It was fun.

Yeah I could see it was internal wastegate.

How did you end up mating the WRX turbo to the manifold? I know the WRX turbo has a really funky flange

Weld the funky flange onto a turbo manifold.

CNC Laser cut them, and made my own manifold.
