Wicked Wheel?

I'm going o remove my turbo to change the up pipe (has a crack in the bellows).
Figure it would be a good time, if I was going to change, to put the Wicked Wheel in.
Does anyone have any input on whether or not its worth it, or if there is another option other than changing turbos.
Thanks

I did the XS Boost wheel in mine and have no regrets...In fact love it. Lower EGTs faster spool and better throttle response.

I can sum it up this way. I have spent way more than 200.00 that didnt even come close to giving me the seat of the pants gain this wheel has. So I would say yah its worth it. Only regret is not getting the MTW wheel. I still might pick up a single plane one to try tho.

Got any pics of the xsboost wheel??

We have the wheels in stock if interested. They have shown to reduce EGTs by at least 50F (some have reported as high as 200F drop but I don't advertise that you'll see that) and provide a noticeable (not earth shattering but enough to feel) difference in power in the lower to mid RPM range. This is as well as slightly quicker spool and throttle response. Hope it helps.

Cool. Thanks man. It's hard to tell from the pic how tall it is. And I'm not sure if matters or not as I haven't tested both wheels to see if there is a difference. I know our billet wheels are significantly taller than the OEM wheel, which I found interesting.

No not as of yet we don't. We may in the future, but aren't sure yet.

We at MTW sell a drop in replacement billet wheel for the 6.0 OEM turbo. We don't call it the Wicked Wheel or anything as that is trademarked by DieselSite. They sell theirs for $239 plus shipping and we sell ours for $230 shipped. We also have wheels for the 03 turbos as well as the 04.5-07 turbos where theirs are only for the 04.5-07 turbos. Hope this helps.
