Wicked wheel questions

I heard the wicked wheel will lower boost but does not hurt performance. Now will this actually be better on the turbo if it keeps the boost levels down a bit on a truck pulling over 30 psi? I have a pos superchips on my truck with stock injectors and it will pull about 28 psi of boost. But i will be getting stage ones and php tuning within the month. So i know the boost numbers will climb and prolly kill my turbo.

Lower? Never heard that as an advantage? I would swear that mine increased boost!

I read on here that it can keep the boost down to around 27 or so. And I believe anything over that has no benifit in power but put's your turbo under aditional stress.

It increased mine to somewhere in that range. 28-29 PSI

Not sure if it dampens one that is boosing more? Interesting to find out though?

That's what I've heard, anything over 25 is suppose to be hard on the stock turbo. Mine will run up to 28-30 in the 120race if I get on it. You'll be impressed with the PHP tunes, I know I am!

you would be better off buying a wastegate controller. That way you can tell it when to letoff.

I do not have the controller.

I do have the ww and hate it. too noisy. but it did cure my surge when pulling my trailers. So I have just learned to get over the noise.

The ww will prevent turbo surge, it will not add hp, it really does not hurt boost pressure. It also really does not add to your mpg either.

It will add whistle to your turbo as well.

This is all information from someone that has been running a ww for a couple years now.
