"Wicked Wheel" for an 03 6.0 turbo?

Is there a "Wicked Wheel" type compressor wheel for an 03 6.0 turbo or is a stock replacement the only option. I noticed a small chip out of the corner of one of the blades on my turbo when I did my CCV reroute and want to replace the wheel. Any suggestions on where to buy would also be helpful, thnks.

Unfortunately the 6.0 is not that easy unless you want to take the gamble. Upgrading the compressor wheel as your asking is considered a Stage 1 turbo. The compressor wheel gets replaced and the housing needs to be machined to make it fit properly.

You could try swapping it out with another stock compressor wheel. I can't say where you might find just the compressor wheel new in the box.

I researched it and found out you can not buy the "compressor wheel only" for the 6.0 turbos, you have to buy the whole cartridge. The dealer wanted $1200, but I was able to find a new cartridge through a Garrett distributor for $679.

Have you just looked at a new Garrett Powermax.
It is a GREAT upgrade for about $1200
