FWIW, I recently installed a WW, pre-'99 compressor wheel to hopefully eliminate surge while towing heavy on grades. I'll know this week if the surge is solved but I have noticed that the egts have increased 75-100* while running unloaded. I don't know if the new WW2 exhibits the same behavior or not. Just something to ask about.

it was the same for me when iinstalled my gen 1 ww. the originial wicked wheel flows less air.

the new ones flow more air, my egts are 50-60 degrees cooler at curise.

hmm, perhaps I should've waited for the gen 2, it was out of stock so I went with the original ww. Oh well, I'll see how she does while towing...so long as its running below 1200 I reckon it's not an issue.

you can run 1200 degrees no problemo.

bd's billet wheel is the cheapest at 185. ive heard good results.
riffraff wheel is 195. so its really up to you.

i like my riffraff wheel but thats my opinion.

when i was in the market i read that some wheels (bd i think) made the whistle terrible. I went with the ww2 and i have noticed that under hard acceleration it almost makes a cackling sound, definately a different sound than i am used to hearing out of a diesel and i can physically hear the wheel spooling from inside the cab (sounds pretty cool), over all the sound at regular acceleration has remained unchanged, as far as egt i didnt pay close enought attension to what i was running before i installed it.

Both the BD and RiffRaff wheels have a nice whistle to them. I find mine to be loudest under mild load at 1800rpm
Like just cruising up a hill. Full throttle isn't as loud

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.
