stock turbo replacement wheel

I wanna get a billet wheel for my stock turbo. my buddy just got the wicked wheel and I like how it made his truck spool faster and stuff. But I would like to try the MTW billet replacement wheel I was reading about it while searching for info on the wicked wheel. I got on MTW website and couldn't find anything about it. but to my question I would like to try and install this myself. how hard is it to take the turbo off and install one of these wheels. ive never messed with a turbo before. are there any special tools need for this, do they need balanced or anything. is there anything else I should get along with the wheel like gaskets or anything. does anybody know of a good video on youtube maybe that could help me do this? thanks in advance.

The Wicked Wheel comes with the o rings for the drain tube. I would suggest getting the updated turbo feed line and drain tube it you are pulling the turbo. You need star sockets I believe it is 8mm and the large nut on the backside of the wheel is 7/8th standard socket . Take the bolts out of the center housing, put the large socket on the back side of the wheel. put a wrench on the nut on the wheel, remove (reverse threads) Remove stock wheel, install new wheel, and re assemble turbo. No need to balance. The shaft is already balanced.

I believe he is talking about the compressor cover. You just unbolt the compressor cover, put the socket on the nut holding the compressor, socket on the turbine(you need to going the socket flat so it will grab, the turbine nut is very shallow and the tip end of a regulator socket will not grab it.)

Turn the compressor like you are tightening it to remove the nut(righty loosey, lefty tightey) in this case.

No you don't need to drain the oil, at least get a new gasket for the oil feed on top of the turbo. If the orings are not cut or nicked, they are fine. Get new orings if you see a nick.

The billet wheels never made it to the site yet, they go for 230.00 with shipping. Just call me and I will set you up on it. The wheels are very close to being the same so they should perform the same.
