going to a bigger turbo again

I am going to step up fom my 472 to a 475 since the truck is allready down. Do you guys think it is worth the extra 325 dollars to go to a billet wheel? on the biilet wheel i have the option of an 11 blade or a 7 blade. what will make the power and spool the best?

What is the weight difference between the billet wheel and the cast wheel? Are the billet wheel dual plane or single plane?

the billet wheel is only 22 grams lighter than the cast and the billet wheels are single plane while the cast is dual plane

22 grams isn't really that much, but the single plane should help it spool a little quicker than the dual plane. I believe that single plane wheels are more susceptible to compressor surge, but that is just me. Idk if it is worth it.

I think you should go ball bearing

The staggered vanes do reduce compressor surge

Adam your correct. Single plane wheels are more susceptible to compressor surge, however a billet single plane wheel is less susceptible to surging than a cast one. Dual plane wheels are better at reducing surge. Another thing to think about is ALL single plane wheels will surge at some point, BUT depending on the application (type of engine and RPM band of the engine) that wheel might not ever get to a point where it will surge. Hopefully that makes sense lol.

I like it when you guys agree with me

I think Gary is running a fairly tight turbine, so I would stay away from the single plane wheels, but that is JMO, especially if you are happy with how it spools now. Spend the $325 on a Precision 46mm gate, I think you may need it...

On an unrelated Note, Jay, how is the testing going on the diesel site wheel?
