late 99 7.3 turbo failure

Took my truck to a shop for power loss and theyre saying the turbo is failing which I believe. So for a replacement what should I do. Im at a loss with different things people tell me to do. I could do stock used replacement but wheres the fun in that. I was looking at batmowheel then im not sure if they even make em for a 7.3.... my truck has 4" exhaust, intake, sct tuner, built trans and triple disc torque converter, and stock injectors so far. I want something I can do on a budget right now and drop in. Worst case I get a stock one until I can upgrade more. Please post your input and if you have anything for sale thatd be great also... thanks again

upgraded rebuild kit 360 thrust bearing etc.

forget the batmowheel, its overpriced junk.

look at a billet wheel from bd, riffraff, or the ww2.

then if you want you can get a high flow outlet and blank ebpv pedestal. but thats just more money.

Can I upgrade the turbo without bigger injectors and not cause damage?

a 38r is a good upgrade on a stock truck.

its a larger turbo but spools quick due to the ball bearings.
