I hear the Whicked Wheel Gen2 is the best 5/5 wheel. RiffRaff had a new 5/5 as well but switched it to a 6/6 fin setup. I have read reviews on both. Haven't seen a head to head comparison anywhere. I also have read that the 6/6 from riffraff is better if you are running a ported housing. Its rumored that the WW2 falls flat with a ported housing. But that is just what I have read. Pure stock turbo will benefit about the same with either wheel. Again from what I have read. No head to head comparison as of yet. Benefit is no surge, faster spool and smoother and higher potential boost.
