1979 pace car factory turbo issues

Hello everyone,

My father and I became owners of a 1979 Pacecar with the factory 2.3 draw thru turbo this weekend. The turbo is leaking oil and i would like to rebuild/replace it with something of similar specs. I do believe it is a Garrett AiResearch T3. Will a universal T3 rebuild kit be enough to stop an oil leak? if i was to replace it what is something that would be similar to stock? not looking for significant power gains.

Please feel free to move to the SVO subsection if that is more appropriate.

Loud, slow, and the brakes squeak. Is it a racecar yet?

Quiet, slower, and has no brakes. Hasn't moved since '04
