Put a wicked wheel in and a ATS housing will up the HP a little. As a plus you wont have to worry about turbo surge after the WW either

Only way to increase boost is to add fuel, ported housin and ww do NOT add hp and ww doesnt always cure surge, more of a band aid

Yep, no gain in HP from a WW. It is only used to help cure turbo surge. Do you have gauges and a tuner? That should be your first step.

^^^^ exactly, more fuel = more exhaust gas = more boost and more drive pressure (pressure back into the engine, basically how hard the engine is working to pump exhaust gas out). A ported housing might even drop boost pressure cause you are increasing the volume the air can expand to fill but your getting more CFMs/flow. Remember boost, like drive pressure, is a measure of restriction...what is more important is proper flow and reasonable boost and drive pressures.

Even on ATS's site, for their ported housing and bleed-ring feature - it even recommends using the Stock wheel over the WW. Well, I say recommends loosely - but it says flows more than the WW with their housing.

Yes I have gauges and a DPTuner but the highest setting is only 80Hp. I may send it back for the 100 or 120 Hp mod

You need more fuel bro... WickedWheel is pointless... does nothing but loose power.
