Turbo with 190's

Is there another good turbo out there other than the powermax that would run good with 190's. I was going to get the powermax but no one has them right now.

Wait on the Powermax. You're going too regret any other decision you make.

Elited vgt-ss.
But it is more $$$
Used and they are modifying a used turbo.
Reliability is lower than the powermax
powermax is a 63.4mm
SS is a 64.7mm

the SS will handle the 190's much beter than the powermax, yet it will not last as long.

I had a VGT-SS and in a little over a year it crapped out. So I would not recommend that turbo to anyone.

For simplicity the powermax is going to be your best bet. A non VGT 62-64mm will make better peak power but driveability will suffer for most people unless you're willing to spend more time and money on additional hardware and a fair amount of time live tuning. By additional hardware I mean things like a diverter valve, changing stall converter, etc, etc. 6.0's don't like to spool fixed chargers very well without hard part modifications. For 98% of the hot rodders out there the VGT is the way to go.
