Re: billet ww install

Never, ever use an impact!!!!! It causing alot of future failures due to minute fractures. Diesel Site has big warnings against it. You do not need to balance if it is a healthy turbo per owner of Barder Turbo Svc in PA.

Re: billet ww install

extreme speed changes can damage the shaft. a few clamps and a couple bolts and the turbo is out. not sure why people bother to do it that way.

i would contact the supplier you plan on getting the wheel from and ask there opinion about the balancing.

im pretty sure it was covered here but up to you if you want to read through 291 posts. Radically Redesigned Wicked Wheel® makes 43 PSI on my STOCK turbo! - PowerStrokeNation : Ford Powerstroke Diesel Forum

Re: billet ww install

I'm still a little unfamiliar with it but what John (here at Dieselsite) has been telling people who ask about balancing is the parts of the Garrett turbos are balanced individually when they're built and the wheels are also balanced when they're made. So, if you WANT to have it balanced and have the means to do so - go for it - but it's not necessary.

Also, NEVER USE AN IMPACT GUN. I mean, you can if you want to, but there's nothing anyone can do when your shaft breaks down the road. It's a hardened steel that will fracture from the stress.

If you have any more questions about anything feel free to PM me, post back, or give us a call at the office to talk to someone. :)
