I'm gonna throw this out there, I was doing some reading on powerstrokearmy and a very smart person that knows diesel in and out pointed out a very good point. He said, and I quote, "Shaft speed slows down, but when it slows down the added volume trying to be compressed in the same area is going to make more pressure inside the housing than before which is providing a torque in the opposite direction of rotation... That will increase the normal force around the shaft potentially causing more bearing wear and shear stress than the bearing and shaft assembly were meant to handle...on top of the assembly not being balanced from the aftermarket wheel.
In summary the way I see it. May be wrong, may be right, just the way I see it with what I've learned thus far"
So a wicked wheel may benefit the stock turbo, or it could just aid in blowing it up... no one will know until they someone has run one for a long time.
