higher performance turbo for my wagon

I'm putting my wagon back on the road. I have egr -less exhaust and intake manifolds from the early w116 which the exhaust is jet hot coated, a small IC, MYNA pump and increased boost from the stock turbo. I'd like more performance as a daily driver and want to upgrade the turbo and install a larger exhaust to match. What are your suggestions?

BorgWarner 179355 (EFR 7064B) with a 3 inch exhaust is what I have in mind for 'Desert Rose"...eventually.

Mitsubishi TD05 is practically the same size as the stock turbo (besides a larger turbine housing)
I'd get an 8 or 10cm housing for that. They make enough air for about 250-260 hp on a 603. The only downside is the wastegated versions have very small exhaust openings but you can bore it out.

i might look at a holset HE221W it supports up to around ~250hp and with the 6cm housing spools past 10psi by 1500. it should also be a good deal cheaper than an efr and doesn't require water cooling.

Which of these is easiest to replace the stock turbo? Where’s the best place to buy?

the TD05 is likely the easiest and cheapest as it is a t3 flange look on ebay for it but beware there are many Chinese clones and i wouldnt trust running it hard for long. the HE221w is a bit smaller and tougher however you would need a t25 t t3 adapter for it they are available on: Home | Powered by Holset. and finally the EFR can be had in a t3 flange but would cost between 1200-2000 depending on options they can be had on: https://www.full-race.com/product-category/borg-warner-efr/turbos-efr-series/
