I picked up a superduty turbo from the junkyard today and it is tight. I figure it wouldn't be worth it to swap because of the need to swap up pipes etc. but my question is, would there be any benefit to swapping either of the housings or wheels or other parts to my turbo? Tia for any suggestions

I dont think the housings can be interchanged. The SD compressor housing is to big and will hit the head cause of the OBS lower pedestal

What about the wheels? I believe they interchange, would the superduty push more boost over stock obs?

A super duty wheel is a more aggressive wheel. But it can cause a surge due to it.

Think I may try swapping them and see if I like it or not, I was reading that it shouldn't surge because obs turbos spin slower due to a larger exhaust housing. Is this correct?

The original wicked wheel yes. The obs does not flow as much and they are swapped to reduce compressor surge in the sd. So I was looking to swap a sd wheel in my obs turbo, correct me if I am wrong

I have the SD 9-blade wheel in my '97 and it runs great with a 1.0 housing with no surge. I have a billet 11-blade to swap in, but I'm not going to run, just gonna sell it.
