Batmo Wheel questions

What kind of benefit would I get from putting the batmo wheel on my stock turbo? Is it worth the $400 and the aggrevation of pulling the turbo?

How are we going to tell you if its worth your $400 to spend? Buy it and put it on and see if you like it

Turbo spools noticeably quicker with batmowheel. I think it was worth the $.

How is it changing the turbine? Do you have any pics from your swap? I still haven't put my PM on yet but thought of using a batmo for it. By the time I get that done I'll be closer to buying sticks

Thank you for the reply to the question and not some smart &%$ comment. People come on here to get answers but some people would rather make a stupid comment than help you out. So I appreciate your reply, it is exactly what I was asking for.

Ok so I am going to order the batmo wheel but my dad keeps getting pissed off saying that its going to "screw up the geometry of your turbo, those turbos are balanced from the factory for a reason" So my question is are the turbos really balanced and if I pull off my fompressor housing and just put the batmo wheel on is that how to install it? Does the turbo need to be balanced if I put that new wheel on? help please

If the balance thing was an issue, there would be a ton of people griping about it already.
