WiCkEd WhEeL for the OEM 6.0 Turbo

Here are the pics of the Wicked Wheel for the oem 6.0 turbo.

After talking to a bunch of vendors of turbos I decided to go this route.
I would have loved to get a new turbo built for my truck but my truck buildup threw me a un expected expensive surprise. Having to get new heads wiped out my turbo funds.

So I was left with either putting the stock turbo back in or doing a budget friendly upgrade.

After a few calls to Dieselsite to gather my information, I felt this would work for my application. Bob, John, and Jennifer were super nice and answered all my technical questions.
This wheel is said to help out in the spool up and into the upper RPM range.
I'm turning some higher RPM's @ 70mph opposed to the F350's and F250's
My main area of concern is from 0-70 mph cause thats about as fast as I run the truck down the interstate.

I am in the process of putting my truck back together this weekend (heads etc....) I will post up more info and pics when I have them available.

It will be a couple more days before I can put it to the test. Tousley Ford sent me the wrong o-rings for my fuel lines so even if I did get it all back together I still can't test it out yet. It will be towards the end of the week before I am back up and running.

I agree their customer service is top notch. It's also nice that they are not to far from me if I have any issues.

I'll keep you updated...

I just put in their 38r WW, and happy with the results, sounds much better too. I am also not far from them, you gonna go to the lakeland dyno even today? sorry for the derail,

Will do.... Having to buy new heads wiped out my budget for a turbo at this time . I wanted to go with a MTW but that was put on hold.

For the price, I couldn't pass it up. It may not be the best option for everyone, but I felt it would do me fine in my application. IMO some will need a bigger turbo no matter what due to their setups (crazy injectors, high hp etc..).

Good to hear about the results. Can not wait to drive mine once I am back up.

Won't be making it to the dyno in Lakeland. I talked to Tim @ P.I.S. last week and he told me about it. My truck is in pieces right now. Wish I would have gotten some numbers to compare with for before and after.

Hopefully there will be another one soon..

All good on the derail

Got the turbo apart, pretty easily.
7/8" deep well socket on the back nut.
14mm wrench on the front wheel.

I go to put the Wicked Wheel on and low and behold they sent me the one for the Powermax GT38, instead of the one for the GT37 (OEM 6.0)

Guess it's on to other projects till Dieselsite opens on Monday..

It's all good. I had plenty of other things to do on the truck. I wanted to get this done cause it was one of the easiest.
