Chipped compressor wheel!!! Best bolt on replacement!?!?

So just bought a '00 7.3 and checked the turbo and she's got chips on the intake blades.... :crying: thinking of upgrading the turbo if i'm paying the money to replace it anyway. Thing is she's all stock so i'm not sure if it would be smart to throw the biggest baddest bolt on i can find. :| Any suggestions and or recommendations? :dunno:

Thanks for the quick response guys.

I'm planning on keeping the truck for a long time and, sometime when i get the money, adding more and more performance parts but not right away. i want something i'm not going to have to replace when i reach that point, but also something that's not going to require me to beef up other parts of the engine quite yet.

I checked the intake side of the turbo, so if i got the terminology wrong and caused confusion, i'm sorry. I've checked the first thing the air contacts after the air filter, so probably the compressor wheel. i have yet to physically check the cylinder walls but have found little to no blow by gasses when i open the oil cap.
