Happy New Year, buddy. Those stories of poor reliability with Garrett's are the stories of urban myth. Failures have occurred from people who install turbochargers like they are putting in an air cleaner.
For the sake of clarity, you can order the Garrett's with oil-only cooling/lubing, T3 or T4 Flanges, various turbine and compressor A/R's.
Seriously, I know you want to keep it simple with a KKK, but let's face it, you're settling for 70's technology. What you need is a complete kit which would include the correct oil feed lines, proper sump lines, fittings AND the proper turbocharger designed with one engine in mind.....YOURS. I can't stress it enough, find a highly recommended turbocharger tuner shop, tell them what you have on your engine for mods, where you want your power mapped.
We have a turbo supplier at the shop I work at occasionally that has supplied everything from mild KKK hybrid's, street Garrettt's, to wild FabCar GTP1 993 turbo monster track cars. PM me if you would like to discuss your options with him. BTW, I'm not affiliated with the turbo shop in any way.
