Inducer wheel question

I saw a Youtube vid on a guy swapping wheels on a turbo. He used a 1/2" impact and just burped the throttle on the gun a few times to remove and install the wheel. He did it without removing the turbo from the truck. Most of the turbo work I have done on farm equip and big trucks was remove bad one and have rebuilt or replace. Never cracked a turbo open before and was wondering if his way was ok to do if I wind up getting the WW2 for mine.

Never use an impact on a turbo. It causes fractures in the shaft that can/ will cause failure later. Maybe immediately, maybe thousands of miles down the road.

I always remove the turbo to install a new wheel, like you are supposed to.

Well.....on a OBS it is 4 bolts and some clamps, and you HAVE to remove the turbo, the housing wont clear the head, and if it does, it wont go back on with the height of the new wheel
