WW and a manual trans

I was bored last night and started reading posts about wicked wheels. Seems the majority of people experience quicker spools times. My question is how does the wheel perform on a truck with a manual transmission? With an automatic it naturally slips allowing for higher RPMs at lower speeds, thus resulting in faster spool ups. I love my 550 mated with a 6sp, but the turbo just doesn't start making power until I'm around 2300 rpm. Makes for some edge of the seat pull outs into traffic, especially if I'm towing Desperado. Just curious if any manual owners out their have a wheel and their opinions. Thanks in advance.

Is it tuned? Originial turbo?

My 01 6spd with a WW will start boosting WELL below 1500 rpm.

I recently installed a SuperChips 1705 I got for cheap. It definitely helped. But I have yet to tow with it installed. As far as I know, I am pretty confident its the original turbo. However, I think it may been replaced at one point in time. I have the entire service history on the truck because it was owned by a guy who ran a repair shop. I'll have to check.

the new wheels spool quicker which would help.
especially after shifts, you could build boost faster.

another reason for the wicked wheels is they cure surge.

I wouldn't be surprised if you got surge towing something with the 1705 installed.

The original WW wasn't designed for faster spooling or more hp, it was just to relieve surging issues under higher fuel/ heavy load applications.(Generally losing 1-2psi in the process)

That being said, my WW1 with the wategate unplugged will start spooling around 1250rpms but won't be ready to play until 2100rpms. From there I can hit 20psi with a punch of the throttle with a max of 25psi on extreme tune.

The WW2 is a different story.. It cures surge while increasing boost psi and also weighs less which should help in spool up.
I have no experience with it because it came out just after I bought my WW1 and I'd rather save for a S468 than dump more money at my stock turbo as long as it doesn't explode.. lol

i noticed quicker spool up when i ran the ww compared to the stock wheel.
but the top end power was less cause the ww flows less air than the stock wheel.

i could only hit 25 psi with my ww too.
the i changed the ipr and the truck ran way better and i could hit 28 psi of boost.

now i get about 33-34 at WOT

Did you really notice that much of a difference? My hpop feels weak but maybe I should be looking at a new IPR instead for short term?

Get one if the new billet wheels.
Diesel site, bd power, riffraff.

The old gen1 ww just cured surge. I maxed out at 28 psi boost. Egts went up though. Slightly increased spool up
With my new billet wheel it spools super quick, egts stay down more boost and I noticed more power of course

I noticed the engine ran so much smoother and more power when I changed my ipr. Heck I'm sure it was the original at 230k miles lol
