Default Hahn 16g turbo?

Hey everyone i have the chance to buy a Super16g turbo from a buddy of mine for $100 that he used on his turbo 1st gen neon (blew the engine). I would like to know if this is to big of a turbo for my goals of 220-230 whp ? I was originally planing to buy the Begi-s1 kit with the china charger but if this turbo is of better quality then i could build my own turbo kit around it. Im not familiar with turbo sizing and flange types but i be leave its a t3/t4 flange. Are there any good turbo manifolds for sale with this flange? Ive tried to search but couldn't get enough results to come to my own conclusion. It seems everyone loves to use the greedy turbos.

No such thing as t3/t4 flange. Those are 2 different size flanges. Post some specs or at least some good pics of it to try to figure out what size it is.

I have an ebay named t3/t4 and it is definitely on the big side for miatas, but it works fine. I get full boost like 4500 rpms, but that should drop a good amount with my tubular mani and 3 inch downpipe that i'll be putting on soon.

Thats way to high for me. Im looking to spool below 4k Id be happy with a 3-3.5k rpm spool range. Plus I rather not run an Ebay turbo.

Can anyone make out the turbo from the picture? Dose anyone know of anyone running it? Also whats a good t3 turbo manifold?

$100 is cheap, but...

Hahn turbos aren't generally well regarded, at least in the DSM community. They have a reputation for being laggy without any great gain in top end flow over other Big 16g's. And it has a 10cm^2 turbine housing which is overkill for your goal even if it did perform beautifully. A 'normal' TD05H Big 16g has a 7cm^2 turbine housing, that's plenty of volume for 220hp, and you'll see it earlier in the rpm range.
