99 or 99.5

i am unshure of what my truck is (99 or 99.5)

it was made in 06/98 the powerstroke sticker is on the finder (not on the door)

and the guy we got it from said it had an aftermarket garret turbo but i don't know if that is true so here is the s/n of the garret turbo Bel28859

what got me currious was i have read a lot about the whicked wheel and they said the early 99's already have one so if anyone knows please let me know

i would also like to here the turbo as much as possible any suggestions on that would be great......... it already has a strait pipe and whistles pretty good now



thanks
Aaron

it's been rumored that if you remove the heat shielding on the turbo outlet to I/C inlet tube (driver's side tube) that it will make the whistle louder because that shielding muffles it. ???? i almost believe it because i put extra insulation on mine and it quieted it down a little bit. the wicked wheel is for '99.5 and on 7.3. your early '99 should have it. take the air inlet pipe to the turbo off and look at the vain's. if thier all the same hight you DON'T have the wicked wheel. if, however, they are stagered in hight, one high one low one high etc. then you DO have it.

thanks for the replies, can I have more information on what an open element is and maybe some pictures of the heat shielding, also is removing this dangerous or bad for the truck in any way

thanks

for some reason i cant upload pic's. so if you want, PM me your email and i can email them to you. i dont know if it's bad or not. I added some more to the driver's side and put some exhaust heat wrap on the pass. side to keep the pipe a little cooler. i don't know that it does any good or bad but i don't think it can hurt anything. also the open element filter can be gotten any where from several company's. i personaly went with the 6637 filter from napa. what ever you do be cautious of the cotton gauze filter's. they don't filter as good as they claim. i think any one will tell you that.
