do a search for "IHI compressor wheel" in the search bar. There are some existing threads already

honestly, in my opinion, i dont think any of the wheel upgrades, billet or batmo, are worth the money or the pita to install them. I was just reading about a guy who put one on an lmm and it actually made his truck run slower. he said it did make it drive better tho. so i would save your 400 bucks and put it towards a turbo

I'd tend to agree. If you want a cheap upgrade Save up for a little and you can get an HTT or II turbo fairly cheap.
Just my $0.02

Not sure how much it is to rebuild a turbo for 1 of these trucks, but the kits i have installed on semi trucks and tractors are under $100. And only takes 2 hours at the most to rebuild. So might want to talk to your local diesel shop if you just want to save money and not worry about blowing a turbo/motor

I've heard about a turbo shop around my town clipping the wheel, pitching it at an angle or something, and taking weight off the housing somehow... Not sure how he does it though exactly.
