To buy or not to buy.....

I have heard so much good about the WW2 I almost bought one. When I was on eBay I found a compressor wheel that looked just like it. Turns out these guys have the same wheel for $191.xx. Should I trust it or just go with the ww2 from dieselsite.com? Thanks guys. xsboostturbochargers.com ww2

If you are the shady one selling you tell sombody what they want to hear right? Billet wicked wheels have been around for a while, the Generation 2 or Wicked Wheel 2 was developed by Dieselsite and is the only place to get it.

I see that in your sig you have a ww2. How is it compared to the stock wheel? Faster spool? Higher boost? Thanks.

Spool is instant, 5-10 psi increase.

That's awesome! Sorry for all the questions but this is my first powerstroke coming from a gasser. I saw a valve on the hot side of my turbo while I was installing my down pipe. What does this do and is it delete-able?

We cannot stress enough the fact that billet wheels have been on the market (including billet copies of the OBS wheel) for a long time now and to use CAUTION when purchasing if your intention is to buy our Wicked Wheel® 2.

Our wheel is designed and sold ONLY by us - IT IS NOT A BILLET COPY OF THE ORIGINAL. There are already several companies out there telling people they are selling Gen II Wicked Wheels... and they are lying. If you purchased one and it wasn't from us or one of our registered dealers (I believe will have a list available soon on our website from verified resellers) you have not purchased a Wicked Wheel 2. Our wheel has an engraving just for this purpose. You can always call us if you're concerned you aren't buying from a legit company.

No problem, we try to help as much as we can. The valve is a warm up valve that can be deleted, I dont have one in mine. Some people like it but when it acts up they arent much fun

Thank you for the positive reassurance.
