Wicked wheel?

Hi new here. I am experiencing turbo surge at 65-75 miles an hour, about 12-15 psi. I hear the wicked wheel is a better compressor wheel than stock, but what about the housing? Should I just buy a new turbo or replace the compressor wheel? Is the wicked wheel a good buy? Thank you in advance.

the wicked wheel will fix your surge issues

a wicked wheel 2 or any billet wheel will get rid of surge with much improved turbo response

x2 what steve said.

one of the newer billet wheels is actually a performance improvement, the gen1 wicked wheel just fixes surge and no hp gains.
