Upgrading Turbo, need input

It is my understanding that there are parts on the turbo that leak oil, and i have several various oil leaks throughout the motor and im sure this is probably one of them, though i cant remember for the life of me which part is prone to leaking.
its soemthing to do with the EBPV right? anyways, im pulling the turbo to delete the EBPV and i figured while its out ill put a 2nd gen wicked wheel in it, and possible a smaller housing but i havent decided yet. any recommendations? am i gonna feel that much of a difference with the 2nd gen wheel? guess im just looking for some turbo edumucation, any input is much appreciated. thanks in advance!

Ww2 is supposed to have more boost and lower egt's in the obs, but only real upgrades for stock is d66, d66 with ww2, and ww2, there is someone selling a DIY kit similar to the d66 tho, a van pedistol is a good way to delete the ebpv easily tho

I ordered mine because of all the hype that everyone claims to have improvements aside from a couple I know running the d66 version

The ebpv will leak oil. I just did this. I purchased the 360 degree bearing kit and new billet wheel from Barder Turbo service and did the rebuild myself. It was quite easy. There are a couple you tube videos on how to rebuild you're turbo. The hardest part was removing the turbo from the truck. It actually went back on very easy. So far my initial impression is a little quicker response and pulls a little stronger. I also did e fuel. turbo pedestal non ebpv. Stainless bellowed up pipes and t500 hpop. So far I'm very happy.

In running a 1.0 turbo form Ron's turbo service. The turbo I'm my experience cracked and was leaking oil every where. I rebuilt my EBPV and have no desire to lose it. They make a big difference it the winter and can be programmed to work as a exhaust brake. When you get your turbo off inspect it so it doesn't look like this.

so should i get a rebuild kit when i pull it? at this point im just thinking of deleting the ebpv and putting the ww2 in. i know the ebpv has its advantages but for me its been nothing but a pain, making the truck work harder by making the engine fight exhaust backpressure to warm it up sounds kind of dumb to me and im sick of it opening and closing and robbing me of fuel halfway up my commute, id rather get rid of it
