Which Billet wheel is better? WW2 or Riff Raff?

I have a 38R on my 2000 and am trying to decide between the WW2 which is 259 from diesel site and riff raff's version of the billet wheel for 198. I dont see any differences, they both claim the same gains. Is their anybody that has tried both, if so which is better? Also, what does everybody think the difference is between the two wheels. Thanks

I have the diesel site wheel. I bought it because bob@DS was the original developer and designer of the original ww, and now the ww2....just my opinion, but I have heard goid things about both. Maybe someone with experience with both will chime in

I was wondering this morning when one of the tuners would do a back to back test. Mainly because there is a difference in pricing. I personally run the WW2. Did on my stocker and on my 38r.

Just to complicate things, add BD diesels wheel to the list
I have that one in my truck and have no complaints

I also have a RiffRaff wheel that isn't really mine downstairs. If I wasn't too lazy I could swap it back and forth to see.

Barder Turbo also offers a billet wheel as well. The price difference is only $20ish when I asked what the differences might be between his and the WW2 this was the reply I got.

"the ww2 is a 5 blade, mine is a 6 blade. both have similar characteristics and performance gains. i just dont sell the wicked wheel brand parts."

For only $20 I'm going to go with the WW2 in my OBS just because I've read a lot of positive reviews of it on line.

97 F350 CC DRW 5spd SBC clutch, Swamps tunes, 3" DP 4" straight, Irate stainless bellows, WW2, Amsoil 4510 CAI, Autometer Gauges, Amsoil fluids throughout.

To do list: Plumb SD IC, Full Force Stage 1's, and some different tunes!

Twenty bucks? I wouldn't think its much of a wheel for that much. The block of billet aluminum would cost that much alone, let alone all the machining and balancing
