Aftermarket wheels/housings

I highly, highly doubt that I do larger sticks on my truck, so whats my options for larger wheels and better housings?

Is there any other benefit to a different housing other than faster spool? Because to me, that wouldn't be worth it.

What are my options for larger wheels though?

You can't fit a larger compressor wheel inside the stock compressor housing.

As for the exhaust side, I have a .84 on mine. Works well with stock injectors. I've still never seen over 1000*

There are no options for larger compressor housings that I know about.

Like I said, my egt's stay in check with the .84 hot side fwiw

Not really, boost levels seemed to stay higher through the gears

Nice! This is great news. WHen abouts do you notice the truck starting to boost hard? I've heard with the 1.0 housing that 1700-2000rpms is supposed to make full boost...

So would a 1.0 housing help with an auto for towing? I've heard that autos don't need a different exhaust housing because they are always in the powerband

I'm very happy with my 1.0 housing. I like that I'm building boost at 1500 rpms compared to over 2000 rpms before installing it.
