Really the wicked wheel is usually used to get rid of the surge that some (many) of the 7.3 turbos have. It (I think) spools up a little faster, and you get a great whistle to it. Not a huge performance gain, but does help with surging, a little faster spool up, and a great sound! Just my opinion, and hope it helps ya out!
