wicked wheel abd banks big head

I have a 01 7.3. Stage 1 single shots, TS 6 position programmer, It sits on 35s. At full throttle ill hit 23 psi. Some people are telling me to get this wheel and banks bighead to get more power or faster throttle response. I just wanted to know if its a good idea. Im a long time away from getting a new turbo confused.

a wicked wheel only eliminates compressor surge... by decreasing flow. And it would be louder.

So it's not really worth the money and should just get a bigger turbo down the road?

Only if you have surge is it worth it. And even then, I would recommend the ats ported housing as it does not decrease flow at all.

A 38r would benefit alot more than doing the housing or the wicked wheel as well as give you alittle more room to grow.

with the injectors he has it would be a fun little truck, even towing they are great turbos and can handle a ton of power!
