There is an existing turbo that is sized properly for your motor and it already has a wastegate, the mid 80s Buick Grand National Garrett T3. With some shopping you can find one for $100.00. Your mild boost lower HP application will not need the W/G flow of a typical 930 motor. 930 turbo and wastegate can cost $300 (very used) to $2500 (new, higher performance than you need).

You need to be cautious of turbocharger matches based soley on HP because most were for smaller displacement 4 cylinder motors. The compressors are low flowing and your high reving 3.0L will run off the map.
