Wicked wheel

I am interested in getting a wicked wheel and I was wondering how hard it is to install... I have heard that you can install it while the turbo is still on... is that true? also what does it do for HP, anything? and does the wicked wheel make the turbo sound any different then when having the stock wheel installed? Any other opinions feel free to drop some

HP nothing...

Yes you can install it with the turbo still in the truck... but it is fairly easy to just pull the turbo. Otherwise you will have to stuff a screwdriver into the exhaust wheel...

It will make more whistle then the stock wheel.

Just to add to this: pulling the turbo will also reveal if you have any issues with your uppipes. When I pulled my turbo, I found I needed to have new uppipes fabricated. I also had to replace the clamps on the flange @ the collector(left side had actually fallen out!). Like layson said, you won't increase HP, but you'll be spooling a lot earlier than with the stock wheel!

After adding the wicked wheel it will increase the sound of the turbo? would it be easier to leave the turbo on the truck or to take it out? So will I feel a difference in the truck when I have the WW installed?
