Turbo Rebuild....new wheel???

Hey guys im getting ready to rebuild the turbo and was wondering if I should install a new compressor wheel? I don't have a lot of money but if I definitely have to I will order a new one. Thanks guys

Well, its certainly not in "good" shape, but if funds are tight then it will do the job until you can afford a new one. The main thing is that it would be so much easier to go ahead and replace it while you have the turbo apart. If you can manage to replace it, now would be the time to do it.

Not awful, but it indicates poor filtration. You have dirt getting past your air filter setup. Bob, is right on. It will do in a pinch, but you need to solve the dirt problem before you put another in there.

I have the 6637 mod on my truck with the filter wrap from riff raff I figured I wasn't getting any diet going through maybe I need a new filter? And I'll see if I can afford a stock wheel so I won't have to worry about this one

The 6637 filters well. Did you check the condition of the wheel when you installed the 6637? If it looked good then, I would suspect you have a leak somewhere else in the intake. The plastic tube which connects right at the turbo has been known to crack, maybe check there.

No I did not check when I installed the filter...I put that on before I really knew anything about diesels..when I first bought the truck. I didn't see any cracks in the tube. but I will check into it further.

When do you get home? and is it the Wicked Wheel? I have an Early 99 7.3 and that's whats in there now. I want to rebuild it this week because as of now my truck is dead in the water lol

No the only one I would want to get rid of would be a stock wheel from my 03. I do have a WW but still am not sure that I will leave the Riffraff 6/6 wheel on my truck and may want to put the WW back on.
