which turbo for 6.7>3rd gen swap

I'm putting an 11 6.7 into an 06 mega 3500, will be using a 3rd gen exhaust. I was going to use an AFE bladerunner 58/76 3rd gen turbo but have been told that it was too small for the 6.7. If anyone has done this swap or know of anyone who has, what turbos are being used? I dont want to use the oem vgt because of the restricted air flow and having to buy an aftermarket controller to operate the vanes. I've had shops tell me that the 3rd gen AFE was fine and others tell me that I needed at least a 463 turbo since the 6.7 moves a lot higher volume of air than a 3rd gen motor. If you have an opinion I would like to hear it.

2006 3500 megacab 6sp 4wd w/2011 6.7 swap, arp head studs 2nd gen exhaust w/ fleece s463 turbo gdp grid delete w/s-3 horn, amsoil remote oil bypass filter system, homemade remote dual fuel filter/water seperator. 5" turbo back exh. ATP EFI live

'Im certainly happy with what's in my signature. DP is 1 to 1 to 37 Lbs of boost. Had to be towing 8000 lbs and hard on the throttle to get it there. Very controllable power, spools right of the bat. Runs clean with Anarchy tuning and is certainly no slug.

2011,4wd LB/CC 2500 H&S Mini MCC by Tomeygun, BD protect 68rfe VB seperator plate enhanced stall triple disk TC, Super B 64.5/80/.91 3rd gen mani & inline EB, Arp 425s, Fass Titanium 95. Spare Mini in my closet.High tech old school and finally lovin it.
