Wicked Wheel does the same thing for half the cost. I would put my $220 into a different mod that actually does something IMO

I have the upgraded wheel on my truck. It is supposed to build boost quicker, but not really have any additional total horsepower. Here is a link to XDP, which has the same thing for less about $75.

Xtreme Diesel's X-Wheel Compressor Wheel

I do like the sound of my new wheel, but just put it on a few weeks ago. Haven't really been able to test it under a load yet.

I've heard that it is best to have the turbo re-balanced when replacing one of the wheel, but don't know for sure.

Oops. Didn't notice your truck was a 96. Not sure if the compressor wheel would even work.
