ATS housing + Wicked Wheel?

I think an ATS housing is going to be my next purchase. I was also going to put a WW in it while I was at it. Do I need to? It's cheap enough to do it anyway, but is it neccesary if youre doing the upgraded housing? Do they work best when put together?

Looking to save my turbo from my right foot, and get more whistle.

Any input on this would be great!
Thanks Guys

It'll whistle pretty loud.

I've heard with the housing you can use either wheel and the surge issues are gone.


Personally, I'd opt for a bigger drop in turbo... but that's just me

When the ATS came out, I put one on my 2000. While I was at it I put the earlier model turbo wheel on it. That lasted about a 1000 miles. Great whistle but the ATS performs best with a factory 99.5+ turbo wheel. I will be selling my ATS here pretty soon to either go TN or H2E, still undecided. It is a good improvement over stock though.

Are you going to sell it here? What do you want for it?

What do you mean it lasted only 1000 miles? You took it off because you didn't like it, or because something broke?

Thanks guys!

I originaly had the ww and the ats housing, this combo will whistle so much and so loud it will eventually get on your nerves, you should just save yourself the aggrivation of taking the ww out and not use both. the ats will solve all your surge problems and it whistles pretty good over stock.

Didn't like the way it performed but it sounded awesome. Truck pulled harder and was stronger with the factory wheel. Yes I will probably sell it here when that time comes.

WW

check this out

Wicked Wheel Installation

Install vid and at the very end they show you that you actually lose a tiny bit (not worth crying about)with the WW only.

Just a basic 01 F350 CCLB SRW -Good from a far but far from good
