I'm currently sitting on a stock turbo wheel but was wondering if there are any advantages in going with a wicked wheel or something of the sort. I know the boost PSI is supposed to increase, but will that mean I will need to start doing other modification as well to avoid damage?
Are there any MPG gains or anything other than a small HP gain?
I have an original WW, basically the same Garrett wheel used on 99 and earlier turbos. I replaced the stock wheel to cure my surge issues while towing heavy....it did that so I'm happy with it. It whistles more. No more MPG though and my EGT's went up about 50*. It spools up a bit quicker. For curing my surge problem it was absolutely worth it!
