Boy they sure don't look anything alike.....

I'm thinking the term "Wicked Wheel" is something that anybody could probably use though.

IIRC somebody started calling the original compressor wheel (pre-99) a wicked wheel and today depending where you purchase yours, it could could ot could not be that, original Borg Warner, wheel.

Where did yours come from (the one installed)?

I guess it all depends on what brand it is. The one pictured below is the only kind I have seen before.

You know,,, the more I look at those pictures, the more I think that the thing that makes the installed one look really different might be because the housing is covering-up so much of it.

The roots of the vanes are similar, the top tips (that you see when installed) are too.

When you dads is installed, take a picture!

They look the same to me. Once you install it, it should look exactly the same.
