Banks 7.3 Turbo Impeller

Im new to this site. I recently purchased a 2000 Excursion with a 7.3. I am looking for a little more power and better fuel mileage. Has anyone installed this before? How did it perform? Thanks in advance.

Banks Power | 99-03 Ford - 7.3L Power Stroke>>High-Boost Compressor Wheel
This?
It's a wicked wheel? Or the compressor wheel off an early 99 super duty.
If you have turbo surge, it might cure it. Not power gains. For mileage and power,
get a better intake, DIY intake is popular, Zoodad mod, gauges to protect your motor, free flowing exhaust (no catalytic or hollowed convertor, no or straight through muffler), and custom tunes.

I was looking at the "wicked wheel" but it looks very similar.

It is the same thing. The turbo will try to surge or chatter under load around 1700-2100 RPMs and you will see the gauge flutter. This wheel can help it. You might actually lose a pound or two of boost but no big deal. It will also whistle much better than stock.

Ive read its supposed to spool faster at lower RPM's to decrease the lag. Is it worth it?

Good cheap fix for stock turbo, Banks Wheel, Borg Warner, Wicked Wheel, Superior Wheel (all the same as far as I can tell). I have one and it works fine. My signature lists all my mods and my truck runs plenty strong. If you're going to do more than mild mods I would recommend upgrading your turbo to something like a Garrett GTP38.

I think its worth it, then again I was getting horrible surge. No perf gains....which i wasnt hoping for...When I make money by depending on this truck to pull heavy heavy loads, i had to remedy the surge
