Question need help locating a turbine housing

so my borg warner turbo i bought second hand (although its literally brand new...) has arrived. now i need to locate a turbine hosing that isnt internally gated. its a t3 flanged turbine housing
size if the turbine wheel is
exducer size is 58mm
inducer is73mm

i am still learning how this stuff works and the math behind it. i know i want it to be spooling around 3000 rpm. if i could get a link from one of the turbo guru's who are really good with this to the right housing i need it'd be much appreciated. i'm going to keep trying myself but i jsut need some guidance to teh right part.
added note, downpipe mounting really doesnt matter. as i'm building a downpipe for it. i just want to be able to use an external get with it instead of internal gate.

well the housing is coated. even teh flapper door. it'd be a shame to weld it up.
it being internally gated might not be a bad thing. but the internal gate is a 24 psi part.
it looks like i can get different actuators though. looking for around 8 to 10 psi for starters
something like this that would allow me to run an ebc system to allow for higher boost levels after more tuning.

going internal gate means i have to weld a block off plate to the toms manifold. there are ebay "topmounts" but i dont trust that at all. how thick of steel wound i need to keep it from melting?
