A Marine .010 or .020 over gasket would be perfect.

Those marine gaskets are 12v, just so ya know. But just use your 24v gasket as a template, there are only a couple things that need to be cut out.

Whats it costing you to have your turbo rebuilt? I wouldn't invest too much money, that could go a long ways towards the price of a new turbo.

I would go ahead and put a .020" marine gasket back on, along with some studs and call it good. Like Sean said there is just a couple places that needs opened up, just lay your stock 24v gasket over the new one and you will have no problems.
