Wicked Wheel

I was just wondering where the best/cheapest place to buy a wicked wheel is. Im getting some surge pretty bad under a bit of a load. Im on a bit of a budget, but a better turbo wheel is a lot cheaper than a new turbo and anything else that it takes out with it when it blows.

I just bought mine from Xtreme Diesel and had it shipped to the door for $60. It cured my surge. I'm running an Elite diesel chip, 4" exhaust and an open air filter.

I have installed 2 WW's one on a 2002 manual pickup and one on a 2003 automatic pickup on my manual pickup I love it because it spools up about 250 RPM sooner but it also creates more egt's If I owned an automatic I would not recomend the WW if your already having egt problems, In my experiance the ww adds roughly 2-300deg more egt's. If I bought another manual pickup I would add the ww again. IMO

Hi Jake!

I installed one and love it! Took care of ALL my surge problems after I installed a TW chip. Mine spools up faster and seems to have increased my boost to the "zone" to allow my truck to get up and go now. Oversized tires had me bogged down. No more.

Ive never heard of it making egt's higher. What does being an auto have to do with it? It still surges the same.

with the automatic you have the advantage of the torque converter to spool up a turbo at lower wheel speed, on a manual youd have to slip the clutch to load up the turbo at low speed. The ww will have higher egt's and it also takes the turbo longer to cool down for shut down. It's up to you but if I had an automatic I would probably go with a turbo housing before a ww unless your not woried about egt's and cost. But like I said before If I had another manual pickup I would install the ww again.

i did the xwheel from xtremedieselperformance.com and its great. totally fixed my surge issues. completely. much much more affordable than a compressor housing. it didnt change my egts much. on the freeway they are a little higher, but not much. going to a 6.0 intercooler this weekend. heard helps egts very much.

Built engine, rods, pushrods, cam, springs. Meth, turbo, injectors, fuel system, oil system. 3 disk billet, billet shafts built trans, 6.0 IC, exhaust, intake. Latter bars, gears, system, tint, HIDs. You know the typical stuff to make a 7.3 get out of its own way... dont brake.
