Question Faster turbo spool

Im still running the factory turbo, plan to buy the gtp38r AFTER i go with BIG OIL lol but anyways, what all could i do to my stock turbo for it to spool faster? WITHOUT HURTING IT

Wicked wheel? 1.0 or 1.15 housing? BD actuator?

What have some of the other 7.3 guys done?

What are you trying to do...want it to spool faster..stage 1's and the 1.0 will work great
Why Big oil, get stage 1's instead.
What intake do you have?

i put the WW on & unplugged the red line for the waist gate & i noticed faster spool witch means more power at a lower RPM for me
ive got a six speed though
i would recommend the WICKED WHEEL

instantly... noisier and definitely spools quicker. my old wheel is a paperweight at the moment.. haha. It was worth it IMO. quicker off the line yes, no hp gains though(been dyno proven by several ppl.)
