Gen II wicked wheel or 38r

i am thinking about some turbo changes. i eventually want to change injectors(stage 1s, prob full force 160cc single shot) but wanted to do turbo first. what is everyones opinion on new gen II wicked wheel. i would do a non-ebpv and wicked wheel(what else?). What is cost difference in going ahead with 38r? or what other options? d66?

You won't get many opinions on the gen II WW wheel yet. The wheel for the stock turbo just started shipping to the beta testers today, mine will be here on the 8th according to UPS. The WW for the 38r is still under development which will give me a bit more time to decide if I want to do two tests at once. For 160's, the 38r would be a perfect match.

As I posted on another thread, if the new wheel doesn't eliminate the howl of a 38R, I'd go to a T4 turbo. The T4 opens up a whole new world for performance and will be money well spent if you ever decide to go for higher hp. I have ~50K miles with a 38R and will give mine away when I get my compound setup finished. I might not wait that long. I could just add the GQSSB and T4i mount now and replumb the compound setup if/when Pius sells me a primary.

The noise of a 38R has become unbearable to me and I can't wait to get rid of it. Granted, I'm old. Younger guys might actually like having to holler over the turbo noise. For the performance, I don't.

Sounds like a solid deal to me! Make sure to really sell your brother on how annoying it is hahaha. But I am in the same boat as you Pile, stuck between injectors or turbo next. First comes money though.

No need to be stuck. Go bigger on injectors and pick a T4 turbo of choice. Better to spend the $$ Once than twice. Ask me how I know.

Yea prob the best bet. More than likely is going to have to wait untill after my A-school and getting assigned to my next unit and settle into my new economic situation. But one can always plan ahead, even if its kinda far ahead...

I would look at a t4 mount, after riding in my truck with a 366 and a truck with a 38r. The 38r is about the most annoying thing ever.

Sold 2001 f250 ccsb 4x4 400/400, dual terminators, swamps 80mm bfh, headers, bts and all the usual supporting mods. 715hp fuel only.
