Just get an ATS ported housing or the 1.0 exhaust housing which is even better.

It's a double edged sword... spend money to fix a problem... or spend more money, fix the problem, and get far more gains.

The stock .84 housing on those super duty's really wheezes. The 1.0 will be advantageous in all forms of modifications.

i put the x wheel on. it works good, no more surge. you hear a lot more turbo whistle in the cab if you have an aftermarket intake setup.
i lost around 2-3 pounds of boost.
but im still getting around 25-26..i think i have a leaky up pipe though so i could be losing some boost from that anyways.

It would be pointless to spend $100 on a wheel then another $400 on a housing. I'd just go right into the housing and call it done, and have better mid/high end power.
