I am also planning adding a turbo to my LD28. As an accountant (bean counter) my advise could be dangerous, however what I discovered from internet and talking to specialists, first question what is you application and how much do you plan to boost it. Futhermore you do need to take 50-60% of the 2.8 diesel for the equavalent gasoline engine, therefore 1,4 to 1,8l gasser application. The turbobygarret.com site offers a lot of help. My application is a Nissan Patrol 4x4 and I am planning mild boost. In South Africa there is a company specializing on turbo's on the Land Cruiser 4.2 l diesel engines. They use the Garrett 2256 turbo for this application. A local LD28 user suggested we use the Garrett 2056.
