Re: Any Dyno Charts of ATS Housing VS. Wicked Wheel?
I second the Wicked Wheel, definate cheapest bang for your buck. I had surge up the yeng-yang before the wheel. Towng 8000 pound up a 6% grade at 65-68 was terrible. I had to either back out of it or drive through it, not a good scenario by any means. I added the wheel, dropped about a pound to a pound and a half of boost, but the wheel FLOWS more air. Dyno results did not change and from the seat of the pants meter she moves out quicker than with the stock wheel. And it cleaned up alot of smoke! I think the addition of the ATS housing combined with the wheel is probably the best match up in the fight against surge. Problem is once you add the ATS and the wheel, theres no doubt the next thing you'll want is a 1.0 exhaust housing. At this point you need to think about how far you want to go. Between the wheel, ATS housing and exhaust housing you have just about bought a Ball Bearing Turbo but without the BALL Bearings. This is why I stuck with the wheel and the wheel alone. It has done great, last dyno (load) she cranked out 365rwhp. Next step when this turbo goes I'll just go ahead and buy a BB Turbo and be done with it. Hope this helps,
