Compressor Wheel Help??

I've been looking around at compressor wheels, looking to upgrade. I have factory turbo with the wastegate unplugged. I want to increase my performance so what would anyone suggest? I've looked at the "Wicked Wheel" but it clearly states "will not increase hp, torque, etc, just reduces turbo lag".. I've also looked at Banks which says it increases hp, torque, less lag, etc.. but i've looked at pics of both wheels closely and cant seem to see a difference??

Any help?

I don't know anything about Banks wheel but, I don't think you can really compare the two from a photo, they're actually pretty complex and a small difference might not be easy to see...

The Wicked Wheel, X wheel, etc are all the same wheels. Those wheels are to help cure surge, no performance gain from them.

No. you need a different turbo. the banks wheel is just a load of crap trying to make more money. get a WW its worth it if you have surge.

The stock wheel is more efficient than the above mentioned wheels, but it will surge. You can keep your stock wheel and put the Ported shroud compressor housing on, but thats not performance either.

If you want to gain performance get youself a custom chip and sell your Superchip. You'll see a difference there.

All i want to do is eliminate surge and be able to drive SAFELY with the wastegate unplugged. Is that possible as long as the compressor wheel is upgraded to SOMETHING different? I'v been told PPE has a good one?

If you want to get rid of surge get the Wicked Wheel, X wheel, Banks Wheel etc. Those wheels are right around $100, check with the sponsors on this site. It will cure surge 95% of the time. you'll like it, just don't expect a HP gain.

But is it safe to drive with the wastegate off as long as i upgrade?
