Wicked Wheel or ats

What is the difference between the wicked wheel and the ATS housing because I hear that the wicked wheel will make you lose like 3 psi of boost and everyone is saying to get the ats housing instead and I just want to know what the difference between is and which I should go with.

I'm having a little bit of turbo surge and I would like to make the whistle louder.

look into the wicked wheel. I ran one and it stopped the surge. Even with 180/100s it didn't surge. And at $60ish it's a lot better deal if your surge isn't horrible I can't imagine that not fixing it.

This was goign to be my recommendation.


the wicked wheel is cool cuz its small and will be loud as hell and stop surge... but it's also smaller than your stock superduty wheel. Thats going to drop power right there.

If you did one or the other, I've heard far better things about the ported ats housing. Porting = more flow which = more power. Thats a good thing. Wicked wheel = cheaper but less flow which = less power. You never want to go to a smaller wheel if you can do something else to give you greater flow (ie the ats housing).

The ATS housing gives you absolutely NO power increase, all it does is cure surge problems. I would need to see dyno proof to believe otherwise.

I had read this somewhere about the SD guys getting more power. Doesn't the ats kit also come with a bigger wheel? Or at least, cant you purchase a larger wheel w/ the housing?

I'd soley opt for the ats housing due to the fact that 1psi= roughly 10hp in general; 3psi boost lost can be worth a good 30hp loss
