Powermax & Batmowheel on stock injectors
I dont know how many threads ive read that someone was looking for results with the powermax,batmowheel with stock injectors. Well I figured i'd tune in for anyone interested cause I too was looking for results, likes or dislikes and didn't find much. Anyways I have all three. I bought the batmowheel because I was disappointed in the powermax and expected more seat of the pants power feeling. I didnt do a before and after dyno so I have no technical data for those that need hp/tq numbers. My truck info; 2007 cc, 4x4, sct livewire, currenty running vivians looney tune, headstuds, 5" exhaust, banks intake, powermax w/ batmowheel and other stuff im forgetting.
Installation; pretty easy (for me at least) 1.5-2hrs. Have to remove the turbo and take it apart. Nothing to get too worried about, especially since the guy at maryland performance diesel showed me how when I went there to purchase the wheel. Very cool dude to deal with.
Performance; you can defianlty feel more mid range power and does spool up alittle bit faster. Cruising around 15mph I could floor it and break the tires loose, wouldnt do that before.
Smoke; it cleans up somewhat faster but still has a dark haze when flooring it.
Sound; without the batmowheel would be a loud ppsssssssss noise but with it, it sounds more like deeper hhhummmmmmm but still loud.
Fuel mileage; really couldn't tell ya since i've been playing with the truck everytime I get in it. But once I stop playing around i'll report back.
EGT's; seem to be lower allover. Does take longer for them to climb to 1350 or so than before at full throttle.
Towing; I don't pull anything to heavy (8x12 enclosed w/ 2 atv's inside) but since it spools faster, pulling out in traffic is a breeze and there no need for anymore go-fast pedal than before. Egt's dont climb to crazy so there no need to watch them like a hawk.
Overall; I'm glad I purchased the wheel. Its really nice to buy something that once installed you can feel and hear a difference.
