Recently i noticed that i wasnt getting much power with accelleration. I noticed i was only getting 15 boost. I took my turbo housing off to inspect it all.

When i got it off i noticed on the fairly new wicked wheel it was not set all the way in on the turbo and the fins had some wear on them. The housing had some scoring from the impeller. Im pretty sure the ww is toast but would like to know yalls thoughts. Also id like to know i my housing is still ok to use. Would it be better to use the stock impeller i have even though it has some knicks in it?

I dont understand how the ww could back out of its place in the turbo to make itself rub on the housing.

Need help on what needs to be done to get my truck back in working order.
Thanks!

Im going to try and post pics but im not really sure how to do it on my phone but i can email pics to anyonr that is willing to help.

think your turbo needs rebuilding. The "setting" of the wheel looks about right...3/16-1/4in shaft protruding thru wheel..(i messed my first one up, wheel was flush with shaft, and a few miles down road..BAM.) Rebuild kits are 60-80 buks, and easy to do. Theres threads/links on how-tos.
