advise in turbo wheel, pedestal, waste gate

I got the up-pipes on there way, be here Saturday, and what to get stuff ordered for turbo, not sure what wheel to get, riffraff billet, ww1, ww2, deleted pedestal, and if I should do anything with waste gate,
also gonna order turbo back exhaust. According to local smog guy, any pre 04 with out catalytic converter there are NO restrictions on exhaust (in California) I guess you can legally run stacks, so my question, I was gonna go 4" but with no restrictions 5" would be the logical choose right? is the 5" much loader than 4", I think Im still gonna run muffler, I live in a quest neighborhood and I have remote start on truck so I don't want to piss-off neighbors with an ever loader truck, while it sits out there warming up.

my main concern right now is the turbo stuff, Ive read good and bad about riffraff, so far he has been very helpful, so any suggestions, thx

thank you for your help, jeremy

Re: advise in turbo wheel, pedestal, waste gate

Gotta say I love my RR wheel. and do a 360 thrust bearing upgrade. some people would say ditch the ebpv but that is totally up to you. I kept mine just saving the money to do a h2e setup soon. wastegates don't really go bad and since your running a stock turbo I would just leave it be.

Re: advise in turbo wheel, pedestal, waste gate

if im getting out leaking out of ebpv, is the a rebuild kit or seals to replace, I sent some pics to RR and he is the one that the oil leak is probably coming from ebpv so do a delete ped, from what I read it looks like its more important in very cold weather, I dont know

What have you heard as far as bad reports on RiffRaff's wheel? My only complaint with it was increased noise but an AIS intake took care of that. I wouldn't hesitate for a second to buy his billet wheel.

Just my opinion, but I wouldn't go 5" either. You would need to be making a lot more HP before that ever becomes necessary. Every 5" system I have heard is noticeably louder than 4" even with a muffler.

Isnt a 38r somewhere around $1400? vs $300 for a wheel and rebuild kit. Im just not understanding how that is comparing apples to apples with an $1100 price difference. I could very well be missing something here, so please educate me.

Re: advise in turbo wheel, pedestal, waste gate

Its 1400 for a real performance upgrade, with warranty, not a stock turbo. Pretty simple, spendin money on a stock turbo is a waste because all it'll ever be is stock. Plus they have 66mm drop ins these days with journal bearings so they're rebuildable and and cheaper than a 38r. He has stage 1's, and a 66mm goes really well with 160's

Re: advise in turbo wheel, pedestal, waste gate

with injectors I agree, he will actually be able to use that turbo. I was getting the impression you were finding them for much less somewhere. For me a slight improvement over stock was all I needed so the wheel and rebuild worked out great.
