Dusted Turbo

Yesterday when working on my truck I had the intake off and my turbo wheel looked a little dusted. The corners weren't as sharp as I expected. Then end play was fine so no worries there. So I figure it's better to go ahead and replace it and start fresh since the factory intake is gone now (DIY Tymar). Is the WW a good replacement even if you don't have turbo surge? Where do you get a WW? Thanks for the advice guys.

It depends you may or may not already have the ww in your trubo. If you do then you will not see nothing different.

If you don't then you will notice louder whistle and you may not have turbo surge.

I'm fairly certain it's the stock components. I did find the wicked wheel for sale but I also found an x-wheel. Are they the same? There's a $10 difference in price, is there a reason for that?

Well I went ahead and ordered the x-wheel. I've read that your not supposed to use an impact when you install it but I've seen it being installed with the turbo still on the truck. Is it ok to put it on without removing the turbo? I'd rather not remove it if I don't have too since I have no idea what all that involves.
