The ATS housing is the proper way of curing turbo surge on the 7.3, the WW is a bandaid. Get a new stock wheel, a rebuild kit from the guy offering free balancing on ebay, ATS housing, and a Turbo Master from Dieselsite.com (the banks WG is an overpriced p.o.s. compared to the Turbo Master) have everything balanced, assemble with red locktight...and proceed to rock and roll.

Slim to none. The ats housing will just get rid of surge, no hp there. The turbo master might net you a broader powerband due to the way it works (see website) but nothing to write home about. If your looking for more power get a better turbo, stock ones don't like lots of boost and there are better/bigger turbos if horsepower is your goal. Or you could just send me the money and ill sit behind you in your truck and make loud turbo and diesel noises.

Turbo, injectors and a DP tuner makes lots of power

at the cost of lots of money

and a few drivetrain parts along the way

I have a bike for the thrill of the road and some power and speed, but my truck is my DD. I need reliability over dyno numbers. There is however many things you can do to make your truck feel peppy without a lot of money. Do a search on the IDM mod. Good luck!

Your pretty much just adding what they call "supporting mods", which is good for "easier performance" if you will.
I agree with 02puffer, get the turbomaster not banks
