Van Turbo

I just bought a van turbo. The first thing I am going to do is get it rebuilt but I have few other questions I hope to get ansewered. I had surge problems with my stock turbo so do I need to put my wicked wheel in the van turbo or will I be ok? Also can I use the stock pedistal or should I get a non-ebpv pedistal? What have you guys done and what is best? I know I need a new adapter from beans diesel but is there anything else special I need to do the swap? Also where is the best place to get rebuild kit and non-ebpv pedistal if I need it?
Thanks

As far as the compressor wheel, compare your stock turbo to the E-Series turbo. Your stock turbo should have a design where there's a long vane, short vane, long vane, etc. If your turbo vanes from the van are the same design, like the WW, you won't need to use your WW. If they're the same as the stock turbo's, then you'll need to install the WW.

I'm new on the whole deal too, but I hear it's a non-wastegated turbo, & it has a 1.5 inlet. Not 100% sure on the inlet, but I've heard a couple of other responses on a different thread.
