MTW single plane wheel for a stock turbo

Well my wheel arrived yesterday just in time for me to spend a few hours today swapping out my 03 turbo for my 06 turbo + the billet wheel. I've never been too intrigued by performance stuff but when I saw the single plane wheel for a stock turbo I knew I had to have one eventually.

There is definitely a difference down low, as soon as I pulled out into traffic I noticed instantly that the lag was significantly less. I put about 20 miles on it so far and I'm liking it a lot. Not sure if theres any noise difference because my ears are still ringing from the 03 turbo.











Also picked up one of these. I've got another 05 turbo that needs a rebuild so that'll be my next project.

Supposedly the single will move a bit more air. How much is to be determined...

Notice all the blades are the same length on my wheel. A dual plane has alternating long and short blades.

The difference may not be much, I'm not sure exactly but I'd imagine a dual plane would be less restrictive and more efficient at higher speeds. The single may move more air at a lower speed but become less efficient up high.

Matt is absolutely correct. I believe that the 03 wheel will out flow the 05-07 wheel mostly due to the fact the 03 wheel has a higher trim to it and still has 7 big blades. Neither wheel will flow as much air as say a Stage 1/Pmax billet wheel, but when talking about stock turbos, these little wheels do actually seem to give a little bump in airflow for a little more power and cooler EGTs.

I'm going to do a boost gauge for before/after when I drop my wheel in. I'll let y'all know how it goes. Personally, if it ONLY reduces spool time, then I'll be happy. Anything after that is going to be gravy to me.

The difference is there, it seems to be getting better too. I'm noticing it a lot more today pulling all the hills I normally do. Very pleased so far.
