Need new turbo for 6.0 f250

I just blew my turbo on my 05 F250. After this unfortunate mishap I decided to put ARP head studs, EGR delete, etc. I have a Livewire tuner and I'm looking for what kind of turbo I should put on. Something reliable and reasonable in price. Of course I would love as much power as possible but money is tight. I've heard that a good turbo is around $1500+. Just wondering what would be the best.

+1 for the powermax, thats what i went with as well. A good "stock" replacement and will give you more power with a good tuner
