Best 7.3 Performance Turbo?

I have a 2000 7.3 PSD and want a big turbo. Ive been doing some research and found the powermax by garrett and that "Ballbuster" turbo but am not sure if they are the best ones out there. Please share any knowledge that would help me decide what to purchase. thanx

honestly not to try and tell you what to do with your truck but i would put a set of sticks with a tw or dp tuner in there before you upgrade the turbo imo u get alot better bang for your buck when u wait to do the turbo later on

its stock, but its new, ill just have to be easy on it. Good thing is that I dont pull, do burn outs, or drag race with it so I would think a stock would be ok?

well it being new and not pulling or drag racing doesn't mean it won't slip.. are you saying that you never give her any kind of hell? if you do I'd say within time your clutch is gonna start to slip and your not gonna be happy at all when that starts to happen.. I had a stock almost brand new one in mine and it would slip every once and awhile when I was getting on it... talk about annoying...

I do give it hell pretty often. Try to shift smoothly though and then lay into it. Not sure if that makes a difference.
