Without compressor maps there is no way to guess. Using junkyard turbos isn't a guess kinda thing. Its like building a complete engine then putting in a cam with unknown specs. The chances of it being a good match are very slim. They can be modified within a certain narrow range, but that might be just as expensive as buying the right turbo to start with.
