You can install the compressor wheel without pulling the turbo, but what the heck you might as well pull the turbo and rebuild. Its not really difficult to pull the turbo just take your time and I recommend a good thick sleeping bag to lay on in the engine compartment. If you pull the turbo make sure you get the 4 orings for the turbo pedestal uppers and lowers.

Take the turbo off, take it all apart, rebuild it and clean it up. You'll be happy you did.

I did the turbo rebuild on the tailgate of my truck with regular hand tools. It's pretty easy. You will need to order a rebuild kit....they run about $100 or so.

I feel it's worth it. No more hissing and low power on cool mornings....and no worrying about if/when it's going to stick. I have NOT missed it. EGT's dropped a little with it gone too. (Like 25 degrees.)

Yes, the early 99 compressor wheels will nearly eliminate surge. My Wicked Wheel eliminated mine all together. But that was in conjunction with my exhaust housing.
