Best Turbo Wheel???

I have a 1999 7.3 with a build date of 3-22-1999. I was wondering what would be the best turbo wheel upgrade for my stock turbo? I'm looking for performance and some extra whistle . I've heard of the batmowheel and WW2, does anybody have suggestions?

How much more whistle did you get compared to stock. I was reading and it says a 12hp gain, is that actually true?

Really hard to feel 12 HP in a 8K # vehicle with the seat of the pants. Noticeable gains are quicker spool up time and it moves more air at all RPM ranges so it keeps your EGT's cooler. Not a ton but its noticeable on the gauge. This wheel was also quieter than my previous wheel, Borg Warner Whistlin Wheel.

Also, i will be selling my Riffraff Billet Wheel in the next week or so. Ordering a new Riffraff Wheel on Friday.

any of the billet wheels will be good.

I'm not sure what's going on with my turbo,
It's a L99, I was told its a hybrid (maybe the L99 with the E99 impeller?

Here is mine, not sure what it is or if it's any good.


But it dose have a really good sound even at idle but cursing along it's pretty quiet (good for long trips) but give it some throttle it wakes up!
And on shut down you can hear it spool down so I'm pretty happy with it but always want better..
