Default Which turbo?

Hi again,

Since my turbo blew, I'm in the process of searching for a replacement one.
I have three options almost at the same price, so I would like your oppinion:
Rebuilding T25 (pros: bolt on, everything will work good, cons: lack of breath at the higher revs, will run in a higher end of the envelope).
Rebuilding T25+making it hybrid with T28 compressor housing (pros: supposedly will run a bit better, cons: a bit bigger price, don't have an idea about needed modifications to run this)
Putting rebuilt T3 trim 60 inside (pros: performace, future upgrades, cons: don't know a clue about this beast inside my car, or is it even possible without big changes and remap)

What are needed mods if I put T3 inside? I know that intake is different (some turbos have only tubular part, but mine T25 have pipe which is bolted to the housing, so I'm confused), exhaust is different (I would need internal wastegate), anything else?
Can I just put T3 in, without changing the ECU map? A friend warned me of fuel starvation, so is the saab fueling enough to run T3 with Hirsch stage 1 map?

Any help is appreciated.

I had a T3 super 60 on my spg and I'm not sure how you are going to get that to fit? Since you want an upgrade, go the td route.

TDs are very rare here, and expensive. That was my goal, but I still don't see the light in that route... But, I'm trying to find one
