Pmax wheel removal?

Got my pmax and batmowheel now, gonna swap the batmo on but cant figure the best way to get the compressor wheel off. The compressor wheel has a nut on it but the turbine wheel is just round. Should I use some vise grips to hold it? Not my first choice, hopefully someone else knows a better way. Any help is appreciated.

Mark the 2 halves before disassembly so you can orient things correctly on reinstall. Take the clamp off and separate the housing. Take the wheel assembly and clamp the exhaust wheel nut end in a vise with something to protect the wheel. Spin the oem wheel off IN A CLOCKWISE DIRECTION. Put the Batmowheel on screwing it counter clockwise. Torque to 10 ft/lbs. Reassemble turbo.

I wouldn't use vise grips unless you have a rag or something in between the metal so it doesn't gouge. I don't see why that wouldn't work, or a screw driver with a rag around it in between the fins to hold it...that is what a lot of 7.3 guys do to swap wheels.
