All the wicked wheel is is a duplicate of the 99 and earlier compressor wheels. It's a little louder than the stock wheel and you'll see a LITTLE less power. It corrects the inefficiancy of the 99.5-03 wheel. Ford redesigned the wheel for 99.5-03 due to customers complaining about the turbo being "too loud". LOL. This caused surge in the compressor and is what the WW and ATS housings try to eliminate. The WW will NOT eliminate all of your surge, but if will minimize it.

Got it! Thanks
Well mine is a 99 mfd of 2/99 so I guess that is considered early?...
