Sorry but I dont think a powermax or powermax with a batmowheel is going to help his cause at all, its a glorified stock turbo and doesn't flow much more air over stock. An 03 turbo isnt any better than a 04+ turbo so you might as well not even change the turbo if you're thinking of that swap, thats a lot of weight you're going to want the air flow.
I know a few people running the bd turbo and they love it, plus it outflows the powermax and stock turbo by a landslide. Just finished a truck with 155's and a bd thruster 2 on a dually with idp tow tunes. He uses it to pull a 5ver all over and he absolutely LOVEs the truck. It spool like stock, its a turbo thats hard to beat for what you get for the price. Its more responsive down low than the trucks ive put a powermax on hands down. The non vgt's have different power ranges so you have to get used to it. Also to add, egt's up 9% grade with his trailer attached he reported wouldnt break 1250* he was glad I talked him out of the powermax.
