Turbo sizing

Hey guys, I'm about to purchase a new turbo for my custom setup (old 47mm took a dump and is leaking loads of oil around the seals) I've got a turbo in mind, but want to ask the forum what they think. Here's the specs on the turbo:

58mm Inducer
82mm Exducer (this doesn't sound right, but that's whats on the info sheet)
.60 AR Compressor
.48 AR Turbine housing

I'm not sure what the trim sizes are. This turbo is ceramic ball bearing and has 7 compressor blades and 11 turbine blades (I would think that would be hard to balance and therefore haver terrible longevity.) Anyway, the big question is this: Do you guys think this turbo will just be way too obscenely big for a stock motor? I plan on using it on the stock engine until I get my forged motor finished. I don't think the spool times should be too bad since it's ceramic ball bearing and the Turbine housing is .48 AR. Anyway, let me know what you think.
