ATS or WICKEDWHEEL

Stuck, finally have a little bit of extra cash, and i dont know which to buy.

I either want the Wixked Wheel or the ATS 1.0 turbo housing.
From what ive been told, the do the same thing, cure turbo surging.

But is either better than the other?
Price wise is a big difference, the wicked wheel is $100 and the 1.0 housing is $400

What would be the better buy? Both?

Who has what

the WW will not give you more HP, and the 1.0 housing will help surge and give you more power.

so spending the more money and getting the housing is the better buy?

You said more power, noticeable?

I've noticed alot of guys with the wicked wheel upgrade done... but I've never really heard of it until recently. What is it exactly? I'm guessing it fits in the housing of your turbo from what I'm reading so far...

And what exactly is turbo surging? Thanks... sorry to derail the thread a bit

No gains with the wicked wheel, all it is, is replaceing the comperssor wheel with a different one...i would say the ats cause i've heard it will give you a bit more power,,,i dont know for sure tho as i dont have one. but i have the ww and no surge...so i say ats

I have the wicked wheel and no surge but I believe my turbo is starting to wear out because under high boost levels you can hear a high pitched squeel....

I did have surge though before the ww

Turbo surge is the chh, chhh, chhh sound you get when still accelerating hard, it is not the whooshing sound you hear when you let off the accelerator. It is air trying to escape back through your intake and essentially stall your compressor wheel. Keep surging bad for a long time and you'll snap your shaft.

The ported compressor housing is to cure surge. 100% cures it guaranteed.

Some say that the WW cures surge some say it doesn't. Depends on who you ask. IMO if it cured your surge then it wasn't that bad in the first place.

All the WW is is a compressor wheel from the early 99 SD. That is what they came with originally. Ford switch them to a quieter one(among a couple other things) in an attempt to quell noise complaints from PSD owners. It whistles more and you actually lose 1-2 HP when you install it. This has been dynoed.

I have both. I have the compressor housing to cure my surge, and I have the WW cause I like the sound

Neither gives you more power

First off... thanks for answering my question. And second, is the compressor wheel you talk about the same thing as the ATS 1.0 turbo housing that Dasaliac03 is asking about? Thanks!

And as far as the sound goes that you refer to, I would like the extra noise too!

the housing is the outer part of the turbo, the WW is just the "fins" it is a diffrent deg. than your stock one, like he said the E99's like mine have it, but we also have slightly diffrent turbo/pedistal. the housing will give you just a little more than stock but elimates surge. As for turbo terms and info I talked to my import friends, in doing so found out how much diffrent our set-up is vs theirs.
