replacement turbo 6.0

My turbo went out and I need to decide to get the stock or the powermax. The truck has 130,000 miles and is used a couple times a week, the truck has an egr delete, new oil cooler, flush the coolant, injectors on passenger side. The truck has routine maintenance. I want to get a turbo that will last, but don't want to create problems with the aftermarket turbo. The turbo is beyond repair and I will flush the intercooler. Also looking at gauges, thinking about boost, fuel pressure, and egt. Thanks in advance for any assistance, hope the year turns out better than the start.

do you have custom tunes? You'll need a tune written for the Pmax if you go that way, since on stock injectors it takes a little more oomph for it to spool it up, and with stock programming, it'll be pretty laggy and maybe surge. At this point in your build I'd say stick with the stock, put a billet compressor wheel in it and get your gauges
