New WW for Stock and 38R turbo

Some impressive results from the the new Wicked Wheel for the stock turbo

Radically Redesigned Wicked Wheel® makes 43 PSI on my STOCK turbo! - PowerStrokeArmy

And not as good as the stock but still impressive for the 38R

Wicked Wheel G2 for 38R Test Results - PowerStrokeArmy

Something to consider

Brian, thanks for posting that! Really good stuff, the testing is fully scientific, so good to see a true before-after testing!
Have joined Power Stroke Army & now know what my next low-cost mod is, the WWgen2!

In fact, just ordered it off Diesel Site, now all I'll have to do is replace my 2.1 bar (35psi) boost guage which I'm just about topping out with my stock turbo with a 3 bar (45psi) one.

If I had my stock turbo I would be doing the same Simon. Its not the 42psi (although very nice) but more the added psi without over charging the turbo and those Back pressure #'s are awesome. You might want to look at getting your tunes changed as well. That extra charge could do with some more fuel. Just one thing to consider if you were to run at that PSI often is head studs and springs.

Thanks for that. I'll take that advice and NOT upgrade the injectors until I have done the head studs & springs!

BTW, I'm still just running the Superchips that the PO put on, pretty much permanently in the top tune with towing off. I'd like to go the Gearhead 6 pos tuner as the next mod once I get the Gen2 WW on. Other that that I am pretty happy with my truck's current truck set-up, i.e. stock HPOP & injectors - not really that keen on doing the heavy wrenching for the extra HP gains.

I like the idea of getting rid of the surge - they should call it 'pulsing' - with surge I was expecting to hear something like the wastegate going off under boost rather than that flutter at elevated boost which is obviously limiting the max throughput of air.

I've done a bit of reading on the GH site. I'm still not exactly sure what to ask for. I guess with free reburns getting the set up perfect at time of order is less of an issue. It would be nice to be able to download any necessary tweaks down the track.

Brian, have you had any adjustments done to the tunes that you're running, e.g. to change the trans shift points?

The Wicked Wheel 2 is only available through DIESELSITE. It is custom designed and tested by us. There are of course other billet wheels available on the market. Just posting to help clear up any confusion there might be.

Thanks, I know now the one I have been reading about so much is the dieselsite one. But the last link I posted has me unsure which one to get.

Fair enough too. I suspect that the other designs are just billet copies on the old anti-surge wheel.
Also, the implied criticisim on the DS wheel, re DS customers doing the testing, is probably the pretty much the same with all of these custom-made billet parts shops.
