tp38 powerstroke turbo advice please

So I just so happened to get this turbo for free. It is in fine working condition, from a 94-97 7.3 diesel. I've done some searching but can't seem to find what I want to know. Has anyone here put one of these on a 5.0 and if so, do you have any pics or advice about them? How much horsepower/psi are they capable of? The one I have does not have an internal wastegate (I think it's from an econoline van). I don't think they spool up all that fast but that's ok, I seem to have plenty of power in first gear and after that it should be spooled. I would buy an ebay intercooler, BOV and wastegate and I can fab up the ductwork. I have two possible cars I can put it on, one has AFR 185's, an XE274HR and a ported Typhoon intake. The other just has GT40 irons and an explorer intake. Which one would it go better with? Thanks for any info guys.

I really don't know how you are going to make oil lines for a pedestal mounted turbo, maybe tap the ports with npt taps and run the lines.. go to a u pull and get the flanges for the two donut gasket pipes. get rid of the flapper, its a internally regulated turbo at about 15 psi. Good luck. maybe mount it at your battery tray area.
