You may want to look into something along the lines of a dyno charge from aps racing. It tests rpm (free load) amp draw and has some nice break in features. It also is still a charger. There are usually between 150 and 180$ depending on where you get it.
Now this is by no means as good of a test as a turbodyno, but it can help to give you a reasonable idea of the motor's performence, and at a much nicer price tag.
Trinity also makes a similar unit, but it can't charge. Much more has something along these lines as well.
