Billet Wheel

Breaking down my engine so the turbo will be out anyways. while its out I'm trying to get as much done as I can. I was recommended to install a billet wheel. I know i can expect lower EGTs, and more boost but I have a few questions...

1. Right now im looking into doing the RiffRaff wheel. Does anyone have any experience with it? or suggest a different wheel?

2. What kind of power can i expect from a billet wheel?

3. Will i still get my 03 turbo whistle with the billet wheel?

Truck will have 4in exhaust, SCT Tunes, possibly FICM Tune.

Thanks!

Re: Billet Wheel

Wheel doesn't really give you a bump in power so to speak. It'll help spool the turbo quicker down low. Compressor wheel has nothing to do with "whistle".... So no, it will not affect that.

Re: Billet Wheel

I think you could do better with a single plane compressor wheel.

Re: Billet Wheel

The billet wheels are generally lighter, so they tend to spool easier.

Re: Billet Wheel

I would do a single plane billet wheel, you'll get more way more air flow down low than with a dual plane wheel

Re: Billet Wheel

From what i thought the riffraff was a single plane? The wicked wheel and XSBoost i looked at looked like dual planes? Am i under the wrong impression?

Edit: oops was looking at the Pmax wheel from riffraff... so looks like all the ones i had looked at where dual planes... lol open to suggestions.

Thanks. :)

Re: Billet Wheel

I agree with heavy assault that I prefer the single plane wheels. They tend to build a higher pressure ratio and seem to do really well with the 6.0 powerstroke vgt turbos.

I was not sure which year turbo you have (i though maybe 2003 from your post) but I will post a link for the two different years. Most everyone buys the exact same wheels from the exact same manufacturer and then private labels them.

Here is a single plane wheel for the 2003-2004

Re: Billet Wheel

IN line with peixixho I have seen my EBP/BOOST ratio a tad higher over the stock Pmax wheel. Down low the ratio runs 1.5-1.8/1 but up top it's WELL under 1.5/1 ratio. I'd have to get a video since it's hard doing 80+MPG and climbing while wanting to look at the gauges.
