Billet Turbo Wheel

Just got my wheel in the mail today. I will be starting a rebuild on a new to me 2003 turbo. I'm looking forward to the whistle but should I expect any power gains I can feel.

I have a 05 CCLB with 5" turbo back, SCT w/ Looney Wild, and studs. I monitor with CTS Insight w/ EGT probe and fuel pressure. I also have the blue spring upgrade and EGR delete.

Any tips you can suggest for the rebuild would be greatly appreciated. I did all the head stud and EGR work myself so the turbo rebuild should be pretty simple. I have a step by step from Riff Raff so I get everything right.

I am also looking at an S&B cold air intake for the truck as well. I know the stock filter is pretty good under 500hp which I'm no where near but have heard an intake can add about 30hp with the new wheel.

Well, righty isn't tighty when it comes to the compressor wheel. I'd take the cover off and pull the turbine housing off. Remove components and clean the center section. Once it's dried, install your kit and make sure the bearings etc are lubed. Tighten your comp wheel to the proper tq spec and do not lodge an object inside the turbine housing when your tightening the comp wheel. Use the proper socket or make one

I had an 03 with a billet wheel before I got the pmax. Quicker spool ups and lower egts. I didn't really notice any SOTP gains besides the spooling being quicker. The wheel is reverse thread as stated above.

Also note that the 03 turbine doesn't have a nut to grab while loosening the compressor wheel. You'll have to soft jaw vise it or gently clamp on a pair of vise grips. Be careful not over clamp

where did you pick up your billet wheel? I'm about to do an upgrade to my stock turbo (04) and the 03 one off an engine I just purchased to put into my truck.

i had an 03 turbo with a batmowheel in it and it did great with my 175/stock injectors. i thought the 03 had slightly slower spool that the original 06 turbo did bu made more boost and and seemed to give it more power. It commonly would 34lbs of boost.

Like mention above, the turbine doesnt had a nut on it but i was able to hold it with vise grips. just not to tight...

Thanks for all the tips guys they will be very helpful. None of those are mentioned in the step by step guides I have found. The wheel came from MTW and cost me $200. I haven't taken out the stock wheel but I'm expecting a significant weight difference along with quicker spool. It sure is an awesome looking piece of metal. It was on my desk all day Friday at work and made quite the conversation piece.
