Gen2 wicked wheel install tips?

Hey everyone I got my gen2 aluminum compressor wheel I'm today from riffraff diesel... Was wondering if anyone has swapped out a wheel and can give me and advice or tips? The reason I got the new wheel is to try and get rid of surge and gain performance.

Have you ever taken out your turbo before? If you have, its super easy.

PIS 175/80's, Van Turbo with EBPV, BD Billet Wheel
Lots of money spent at RiffRaff
Holley fuel pump, in tank mods, crappy riding leveling kit, DP-F6, 5 Gauges+Edge CS in dash, CB radio in Dash, over 100 goofy little mods
Still pretty slow, just less slow now.

I have not... I watched a video on YouTube where they took off the intake side of the turbo and used a impact gun to losen the wheel by tapping the trigger on the impact gun...?

Um... yeah. Don't do that. Pull the turbo out and do it by dieselsite directions.

I don't know why you'd have to remove the Turbo, I followed that video and it went very smoothly. You're gonna triple the amount of time it takes for no reason I can see. Why don't you try it first, if for some reason, you had trouble you could always resort to "fighting" the Band clamp, Up Pipes, and all the rest it's gonna take to get it out


This is the vid you saw -right?

Doing it that way, like with a impact, may cause internal stress on the turbo shaft. They have broken before. Just sayin.....

Back that up....!

Sounds like nonsense to me. You're saying shaft is overtorqued or mysteriously effected by the shock of the impact gun?

They make no money by telling you this. They would actually make more money selling oem turbo's with WWgen2 already on.

Look at the install instructions from Dieselsite. Clearly says they have had stress fracture failures using this method. Bob and his group have prolly changed more of these than we ever will, and their best advise is to not use a impact. Having said that, you may be able to change it with the turbo in. Just don't use a impact.
