    Wye is some kind of phonetic spelling of "Y". Most of us just called it a "Y" pipe.
    Good luck with your truck:Thumbs Up

    The turbo bolts to the up pipe not the Y pipe. The bottom (2 of 4)nuts can be problematic. Wes shared the tip to enlarge the pedestal bolt holes so às to give a little wiggle room for reassembly...

    Stage one requires a completely different downpipe from what I’ve heard, and it needs a custom oil drain I think too. So I would consider that in your cost consideration for the stage one versus upgrading the stock turbo.

    FYI, the same turbo Justin sells as a stage one goes for 5-600 on eBay brand new from borg warner...

    I wish I had seen this but work hours have me way tired after. So not much surfing time.
    I can mod that turbo with a new chra and a bigger, better mod than the wicked wheel.
    But alas I may be too late with recommendation.
    I would almost bet that with 200k miles your turbine wheel tips are melted a bit and that is why performance is suffering.

    I've got around 6000k on a typ4, and still working strong.

    The turbo justin uses on the stage 1 drop in is different from the stage 1 turbo kit he offers. The stage 1 drop in is a bw257sxe machined to work with the factory or ATS 093 exhaust housing so it will more or less drop in place of factory charger. The oil drain is the same on the drop in as is the mounting. Also on the drop in the 3" exhaust elbow and downpipe upgrade will work on both the factory/093 turbos and the stage 1 drop in.

    Now the stage 1 turbo has a different mounting flange, oil drain, and downpipe.
    Hope that clears it all up for ya.

    You say the pump was turned up, but what is your max egt right now? How far did they turn up the pump. Usually a maxed pump with boost to follow, and exhaust makes pretty respectable power.....And since your not having issues with the cooling system.....I am betting it probably is under fueled.

    Very good info, thank you for clearing that up. Wish Justin spelled that out on his website, I think more people would do that upgrade if he did.

    It would be great if Justin were to spend a small amount of time, say an hour or so once or twice a week to show support for the community that helps to support his business.

    I believe that he does. I'm pretty sure that he's a member over on Ford Truck Enthusiasts. I know that he was a member on here too, but had some personal conflicts with some others. I'm not a member of FTE, that was before my time here, so I don't claim these to be absolute truths, just the facts as best I know them.

    So, just a heads up - I got a wicked wheel ordered about a week ago, it arrived and I installed it in my Factory Turbo '93.
    I went from ~11 PSI absolute max, to about ~15 PSI. It's a bit louder(when spooled) and it spools better too.

    In a few weeks, I'm going to go see Russ about his improvements and see what I can afford to buy from him. I'm not too concerned about having spent money on this wicked wheel at this point; it did help a bit, and I have plenty of trucks it could go in if I get something better from Russ.

    Nice, is that without changing fuel and timing? How much faster spool?
    Oh and is your wastegate wired shut or just unplugged, or still functioning?
