billet wheel install- im polish and cant figure it out!

Hey guys- excited to get the new billet wheel in and im trying to install it on my powermax and cant break the compressor wheel off.... There is no nut on the turbine end. Its just a round circle that looks like a cap with a cut in it(i guess that cut is used for balancing it?).. Anyways does the compressor wheel on the p-max's have to be spun off with an impact gun?

whatever you don't use an impact gun.. it will cause stress cracks in the shaft. I had to take the exhaust housing off mine and hold the turbine and then use a wrench.
