I dont know of any "aftermarket" compressor wheels without a different compressor housing. Someone else will be along to help you further on this, as I dont know all about the aftermarket on our trucks...

welcome to the ORG!

The only aftermarket wheel i know of for a stock housing is the ww. Doesn't give you higher boost or hp but it helps with surge. As for the wastegate, there is a way to adjust your stock one.

If your running the programmer you should be seeing more then 17psi. Stock is around 20-22 psi. I would be looking for a boost leak. Check the Cac tubes that go to the intercooler. Remove the CAI and reach in and check the compressor wheel for damage or excessive play from the shaft.

Your screenname almost made me ask if you were at pendelton. Due to the part of the base named Matteo.

I was stationed at pendelton for 3 years. I used to hang out in Ramona, Poway, Palomar MTN, Lakeside, Escondido, Santee, Temecula, Glamis, Borrengo Springs, Pine Valley, Fall Brook, El Cajon, Rancho Cucamunga or how ever you spell that place. But anyways yeah I been through and hung out in Santee.

Thats cool man the military is not for everyone and anyone in the military or has been in the military should respect that.


Man bringing up those towns I used to run through brought back some old memories any ways. lets get back on track.

Like I said it sounds like you have something else going on to cause the low boost.
