WW2 vs bd billet wheel

What are the differences (performance wise) between the wicked wheel 2 and the bd billet compressor wheel. If anyone has one or the other any feedback would be great, tryin to figure out which would have the best performance. Thanks in advance.

BD wheel

I dont know. havent seen BD or anyone do any dyno runs. Have you searched?

I am curious why you would bring this up rather than just order one with proven data?

I have the WW2 and all I can compare it to is the stock compressor wheel. I can say it makes a big performance difference in my truck. The bottom end response is much better, the spool up is much better. You can feel the difference.

I second Griz's opinion. Ww2 is an awesome upgrade for a stock turbo.

But is there a noticeable difference between the bd billet wheel and the ww2

If the billet wheel spools up faster than the OEM one, I'd be interested. Driving a manual transmission, I lose boost every time I shift.

Also, I wouldn't want to leave that billet wheel bare, I'd look into getting it type II hard anodized.

It does spool much faster.
What do you think about your short throw shifter?

All I can say is the WW2 is a big improvement over the stock compressor wheel. I have no experience with any other wheels so I can not answer your question.
Are you not happy with your BD compressor wheel?

Well I just got it installed not to long ago and it performs very well but i was wondering if the ww2 out performed the bd wheel becuase ever since the ww2 came out all people have said its amazing, and since I do not have any experience with the ww2 I was wondering if they were pretty closely matched or if the ww2 blew it away. And from what im hearing about the ww2 im starting to believe that the ww2 does out perform the bd wheel.

but the reason i bought the bd wheel instead of the ww2 was because the bd wheels blades were all the same height which i *thought* would mean it pulled more air than the mismatched height blades on the ww2.

I don't want 35 lbs of boost, I just want a moderate amount of boost real fast. I'd thought about a GTP38R with a .85 A/R housing, but they're out of my price range.

And I love the short-throw shifter, made my truck more easier and smoother to drive.

Here is what Bob Riley from Dieselsite said: "It depends on what you do with the truck. If you intend to keep stock injectors in it, youd be happier with the Wicked turbo. The bottom end response will be much better, the spool up much better. If you intend on going with larger injectors, Id go with the GTP38R."

The WW2 is a redesigned compressor wheel.
