Input on The Wicked Wheel

Im going to be replacing all the o ring gaskets in my turbo pedestal, and replacing the exhaust gaskets. So i figured while i have it off i would look into a Wicked Wheel for my 2001 7.3L. So i was just wondering what people think about the Wicked Wheel?

No performance gains. Whistles more. It might cure surge if you have any.

there's really no performance gain from it. It'll help cure surge problems.. might lose 1-2 psi on boost and egts are known to go up a few degrees. Mainly because its design causes it to spool a little less air. But Yes it'll whistle louder.

I put one in to cure surge and it has done that. Mine whistles more. I did lose about 3-5psi off the top end of boost, but I feel like since I got rid of the surge I have gained at least some useable power.

If you need to cure surge it is. I don't think it's worth the money just to listen to it.

If you have turbo surge then yes, its well worth it. But just for sound, no. If your still running the stock air box your not going to really notice any surge but when you upgrade your air filter is when most ppl realize they have it.
