van turbo with wicked wheel

I installed a van turbo and wicked wheel in my truck. I am very very impressed. Paid 300.00 for the whole thing and it makes about 5lbs. more boost so about 30lbs. and spools nice too.

Re: van turbo with wicked wheel

Pretty sweet! Where'd you find it? Is the van turbo the one with the 1.0 housing and no wastegate?

Re: van turbo with wicked wheel

Would someone please educate me on the whole van turbo thing going on? I just ordered a 38r and high flow outlet for my Ex that I hope to have on within the next week. I was mainly looking to eliminate surge and lower EGT's but hope to see more power/mileage and quicker spool up. My stock turbo was a little sloppy when we pulled the inlet and checked the wheel. Would this have been a better route to go???

Re: van turbo with wicked wheel

Is it really a good idea to run a non-waste gate unit? I seem to get conflicting stories on that one. Half say its fine and half tell me its a bad idea. I guess it doesent matter either way since the 38r is on its way already but good info none the less I think.

Re: van turbo with wicked wheel

The van turbos are just a slower spooling stock turbo, yes you get more boost, but you can do that on any other stock turbo. It's not something to compare to the 38R

Re: van turbo with wicked wheel

In my opinion my 38r that I used to have is NO better than my van turbo.

My 38r was on my old truck.

What is your definition of better?

If only those who knew what they were talking about replied, this thread would still be on page one.
