Its not a bad upgrade. Might make your turbo spool a little faster and slightly lower egts. It is worth it but IMO I would save up a couple hundred more and send the turbo off to MTW.
I have one in my stock turbo but my build funds and time ran out when I did my bulletproofing. I dont regret installing it but will be going with a larger turbo soon to get the most out of my 155's. My

I would just get a powermax and throw a billet wheel in there... You will get the turbo fast, its a new turbo, and it will handle the 155/30's with no issues.

I installed one in an 03 for a guy I was suprised how well it performed but i wasn't expecting much.Noticed a little better throttle response and it definately built boost quicker I paid $200 for dual plane billet wheel i wouldn't pay 285 for one.As for egts he didn't notice much difference overall I think its a decent bang for the buck

Yep, the dual plane billet wheel sucks compared to the 11 blade single plane version. I had a guy put the dual plane version in his 04 and while towing he could get some slight surging, ran slightly higher EGTs, spool up was the same, and power was the same as stock. I then had him put in the 11 blade single plane version for the 03-04 turbos and he saw (IIRC) about a 100F drop in EGTs, quicker spool up, better low end response and power and NO SURGING. We've just had great success with the 11 blade single plane wheels in our turbos.

The 285 is also for balancing plus I feel like I would mess up taking the turbo apart haha not sure though. I know I can take it off the truck
