I saw my turbo blades from the intake side when doing my CCV mod and I could see that some blades had some small nicks and dents. The truck has 215k (7.3). I take it this is not good, huh??? :):dunno::tard::(:doh::why-me:

If it is just the wheel that is damaged, I suggest the easy cheap fix which is replace the wheel with the ww. Being in Texas in the desert with those severe dusty conditions. I wouldn't doubt if it is just from everyday driving. I mean 215,000 is alot of miles in those conditions. But if you want a good condition stock wheel let me know. I have one sitting on the shelf.

krupatex, I just replaced my Turbo wheel with a wicked wheel. If you decide to replace your wheel I have my orig. wheel, it's in very, very good shape. When I had it in my hand I wondered what in the blazes was I doing replacing it. well I did and I have the orig. I was going to through it away if you want it no charge I'll get it to you. Very easy to replace with your Turbo still on your block. :thumb:Tollen My E-Mail add is: [email protected] My Truck 2002 F-250 4x4 7.3

Thankx guys I really appreciate that! I kinda thought the WW and the stock wheel are pretty much the same thing??? What is the difference between the two???

The WW Prevents some of the surge that the stock wheel produces. Mine looked horrible before I changed it. Here it is when I had my trubo off to rebuild it:

Not that much, just the spool of the Turbo is nice. but the wrap of the wheel makes you keep your foot in it. it's way,way over rated.

Chase, slow it down...

Dude, bring the truck by my house later...we can tear stuff apart, and go form there..

And, if you can snag a comp gauge form someone, we can get that tested as well...

the truck wont fit in the garage, but, I have all the tools you need....

Left you a msg already...

Even if you need a block to start over, I know where to get one or 2...

There is someone here in the area that has ALOT of stuff to build these things up...

Just way outta my E-5 price range...

But, I also know we can swap a block pretty fast...
