Where to Find HX52 Turbos

I am looking for a HX52 turbo with a 16cm^2 T4 exhaust housing for a 5.3l LM7 powered foxbody mustang. I would like to pick it up locally to save on shipping, I understand that they come on volvo semis and other diesel powered large machinery. Just looking for make, model and year information to start my search, I came here for information because you guys seem to have more Holset knowledge than anyone else on the internet. Thanks for your help.

From :

One of the best locations to find used, and sometimes new, Holset turbos is ebay. In general, prices for used turbos will range from $50 to $400. Reconditioned/new turbos will range in price from $300 to $1700 depending on the seller and particular size turbo.

Other good sources:

I would recommend rebuilding whatever you find.

In my case, I bought a core from Goldfarb off ebay for $150 and had Justin (jusMX141) rebuild it for me. It's now 'like new' and I spent much less than what most people will be asking for their good/used HX52's. Even if you have to pay for a rebuild and shipping from the states, you very well may end up money ahead.
