Well my install is taking longer then I had planned. My wheel showed up just over a week ago but then I decided I might as well do my EGR delete while Im in there to make things a bit easier. So that brought me to needing to get my tuner, which didnt show up until a few days ago. Then I hooked up my tuner to see how it worked for deletes thinking I could pick which options to delete. Thats when I realized I couldnt just do the EGR delete to start, so now Im in the market for my DPF delete, which is probably going to take a week or 2. Ill be doing a good write up once I get everything all ready to go!!

I've been wondering what your hold up was Lol. That will bea good time to take care of all that. I'm looking forward to your write up and review.

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.

Pressure won't have any effect on shaft wear because it's an equal force acting on all sides of the wheel. We know these housings can handle upwards of 30psi and that's not the weak point, slow down shaft speed and reduce wear thus extending shaft life. The pressure is controlled from the exh side so the truck sees stock back pressure and shaft speed but the wheel design is what's giving the slight boost increase.

Also these turbos are component balanced so changing the wheel has no effect on unit balance as long as the wheel comes balanced, which it does.

Have done 6 or them since January, all are running great. On the h&s tuned trucks it holds boost more consistent at 30lbs. Turbo noise does not change, definitely worth the money.
