no gains at all for you same wheel you have this is for the SD's. the same wheel you got in your truck no gain just less surge.

You have one in your truck, they are stock. This is a mod for newer 7.3s Unless your stock turbo wheel isnt looking good there is no gain in anything. Same wheel.


Heres my Stock compressor with damage from 300 shot of nitrous nozzle that was to close to the wheel, and a new "Wicked Wheel". Compair.

Like was said before you already have the same thing as a wicked wheel from the factory. A wicked wheel isn't really an upgrade for a SD truck either, as it flows less air to combat surging. Your OBS truck shouldn't surge with a stock turbo, period.

If the SD wheel flows more air than the WW than how much more does it flow? If you were to put on a blow off valve wont that stop the stall, idk about the surge tho.

Enought to make a stock SD turbo surge vs having an OBS wheel, honestly I'm not sure. But most of the rebuilt OBS and early '99 turbos I see have the factory SD wheel in them.

As for a blow off valve, I don't see a need for one in a stock turbo application. Period.
