There is a write up on here along with video. You do not have to pull the turbo. Just have to take it apart at the middle.

You don't need to pull the turbo, but it's much easier, and then you can replace the pedestal O rings while you have it off. And if you get real adventurous you can delete the stinkin EBPV.

Easy to install. Just hit it with a rattle gun and it comes right off with the turbo still on the truck.

Lots of benefit. Lower EGTs, faster spool ups, and best of all, no annoying sound in the winter. Search for it on here, there's a bunch of threads on it.

I got the wicked wheel, i think it spools up a tad faster than stock. Some say u loose about 2-3 pounds of boost. However im getting 19 pounds with a stock turbo and just a wicked wheel. Not to shabby!
