turbo compressor wheel

so i was thinking about a bully dog compressor wheel for my truck and was doing some reaserch so i talked to the tech that does most of the work on my truck and he told me that it was a huge waste of money. i then proceeded to ask why he said that in late 99 they went to a bigger turbo and when they did that all they did was go bigger in actual size. he then explained to me that the wheel from the smaller turbo would go into the bigger turbo housing(just like the bully dog wheel i was looking at) i thought he was full of crap till he showed me both wheels and they are exactly the same so i guess i was just wondering if anybody had done this or knew about it or maybe just the general thought of the org i am kinda new to all of this so done be to harsh

Yes its a early 99 wheel. We had a member on here dyno before and after the wheel and it really didnt make a difference. The wheel is mainly used for turbo surge and more turbo whistle if you like that kind of thing

You bet. There is other names for that wheel, such as whicked wheel, swisher, banks, etc. So look for the best price. You should be able to buy one for 80 bucks or less
