Turbo

Hey guys i'm going to be pulling my turbo off here sometime soon. I'm going to be rebuilding the turbo and putting in a non-ebpv pedistal and a high flow outlet.
But what i was wondering if i should upgrade the intake housing with a 4 inch? I want to hear more whistle, so would the stock wheel and housing create some more whistle or do i have to install a wicked wheel to accomplish that. I read that doing both creates and annoying amount of whistle, i don't want that much just a little more so i can hear it when i drive around. I also read that the stock wheel is more efficient?
I wanna be able to do it right the first time. Which is better stock with housing, or do both? I kinda want to do the housing, so when i add a tuner later i won't have to worry about surge ever.

The "upgraded" intake housing you talk about is the ATS ported compressor housing, right at $425 bucks... It is the cure for surge on the stock turbo, but is NOT a performance upgrade.

I repeat, there is NO performance improvement with the ATS housing.

Oh ok, well now knowing that. While I got the turbo off, I probably will put one on so I won't have to worry about surge. But now, should I keep the stock wheel or go with the wicked wheel?

Do one or the other not both, a wicked wheel or a stock wheel with a ported housing

says on the website that using a stock wheel you loose psi. "The ATS Ported Housing offers significant advantages beyond a replacement compressor wheel. The upgraded housing with factory wheel actually flows more air than the "WW" replacements. This Ported Housing will only work on the 1999.5+ 7.3 trucks."

As your doing all this keep in mind you are still pissing money away on a stock turbo... It is what it is.

$200 bucks for a high flow outlet, $200 for the pedistal, $425 for the ATS housing... not to mention the $300-$400 your paying someone to rebuild your stock turbo...

You have $1200 bucks wrapped up into a turbo that still can not make anymore boost then it could before...

Or you can sell it for a few hundred as a core and get a GTP-38R for $1500 or so.
