ww2 install

I just ordered a wicked wheel 2 and im wanting to try to install it myself, I want to pull the turbo and tighten the wheel with a wrench instead of an impact, I am not a mechanic but i think I can do it, does anybody have a vid or a link to one that shows how to pull the turbo and reinstall? all i can find is people using an impact and i dont want to risk my impeller shaft any input would be apreciated, I would like to start pulling my turbo out tomorrow after work...

it's not that bad, just aggravating because you can't get in a comfortable position. i took my front tires off and lowered the truck as much as i could so i could reach it better. you do not have to remove the "Y" pipe. everybody told me that you did but i was able to get the turbo out. the exhaust and hot side clamps are a pain in the butt(i would soak them in penetrating oil for a couple of days before). i would go ahead and pull the pedestal and do o-rings while you are that far into it.

I used these directions from Diesel Site and they were spot on. Def soak the clamps for a couple days in advance.

I agree with Gomer...slight gain in performance, but no more surge

you can take the wastegate off once you get the turbo out.
much easier than trying to remove it in the truck.

you can try and shorten the rod by turning it.
that might make it hold a little longer before opening.

ive gotten like 33 psi with my riffraff billet wheel.
pretty similar to the ww2 so with a good chip you should see around their.


and the 43 psi was with stage 1 single shot injectors. more fuel = more air.
