To wicked wheel or not?

I have a f250 7.3 with 166k it's my dd, the only upgrades are 6637 4" turbo back and a 75 hp chip(soon to upgrade to tw tunes).

I'm also planning on a set of 33x12.50's soon so I'm trying to balance out fuel millage vs power.

With my current tune and stock turbo I get into the 20~22 psi range before I get a little sputter from the turbo, I've heard the WW will fix this but I'm more interested in any fuel milage gains and boost building in the 5-15 psi range.

Also what site has the WW listed? I've googled it but haven't found any actual sites just forums of people talking about it or the gen1 wheel.

since their is some great new compressor wheels i would get the new design ones not a gen 1 ww.
bd diesel, dieselsite, and riffraff all have new billet wheels that have great results.
they all increase boost and so on.

i believe bd's is 185$, rifrraff's is 19$ and the ww2 from dieselsite is like 230$.

ive heard goo things about all three from individuals who have installed them.

No.
BD's wheel is on BD's website
WW2 is on dieselsite
And riffraffs wheel is on their site.

I have the BD Wheel and i am very satisfied with it. Id love to try one of the others, but at $200 per thats never going to happen.
