Default Saab TC03 a good turbo for light build?

yeah i'm new here, but i'll probly be coming by more often as i'm trying to get a turbo build off the ground.
but the thing is this
i found a great condition TC03 for $75 locally.
would it be a good turbo for a miata. i plan to start at around 6psi and eventually move up to around 11 or so.
just wondering if this can take that.
i need to know pretty quick, cause the add has been up 3 days and it'll probly go quick if it's not already gone.
thanks.

I found these.
I don't know if the turbo came off a
8 valve
COMPRESSOR MAPS
or the 16 valve
COMPRESSOR MAPS

It is a .42A/R on the cold side and a .63A/R on the hotside.
off an '84 saab 900 turbo

i could make it fit, i just don't understand those compression maps at all.... so i don't know if this is something i need.
it's a T03 so i imagine it'll work fine. just really need to know from someone with experience.



UPDATE! nevermind. haha. i couldn't wait. I talked the guy down to $50 and i'm picking it up tomorrow. haha.

but i'd really like someone to help me figure out those compressor maps.. so if anyone has a link that would explain that, i'll gladly read through whatever to figure it out.
they just look like weird thumbprints to me. haha.

Thanks for bein there for me. haha.
I'll keep coming back, but this will hopefully be the only gimme gimme imma noob thread i make.
i prefer to look up things myself, was kinda in a hurry though.
