Default re-turboing miata. comments?

If you've read the thread "aerodyne aerocharger?" you know my story. For those that havnt, here it is breifly: bought miata with turbo in it. turbo stopped doing its turbo thing. turbo is/was aerodyne aerocharger. THis means that if i want to replace it i need to replace the manifold down pipe, tap for oil, run oil return, and plum the coolant lines.
Here's my plan: garret t3, t25, or t28 (whatever i can get out of junk yard car probably saab or volvo). Probably goning with a saab 900 or 9000 from a guy i know (i think its a t3). manifold will be a ebay special OBX or a home built thing (prob. going OBX). going to try to salvage the downpipe by putting garret flange on it. From the pictures ive seen the saab garretts dont have the funky exhaust flange for the internal waste gate does anyone know about this?

comments appreciated.

Every once and a while you'll see one pop up for cheap. I'd just wait and save money........................On second thought, thoes turbos suck *** but not as bad as an ebay manifold.
