Given your goals stated above you should go with the Garrett GT3788VA Powermax turbo. It is a slightly larger version of the turbo on your truck. And go with a set of 155cc or 175cc injectors. That should get you right around 500hp.

Well its larger than stock (63.7mm) and it has the same
Style compressor housing as a 03 turbo so It whistles like a 03 also it doesn't have a silencing ring like the stock one does.
