NEW MAD INFO::::::

I have been doing alot of turbo,work and have gotten alot of Powerstroke turbos and have found out some things to share with the members.I have found out that indeed it is true that a Batmowheel will not be a drop in on a remanufacture turbo.Why? well it seems that the reman is smaller,the compressor housing and compressor wheels are smaller measures 55.5MM/82mm,Stock is 58mm/82mm,so what gives.You buy a reman turbo for your truck and pay 1200-1900.00 and you get a smaller turbo,what a bunch of sh**.So that is why a drop in batmowheel is not a drop in a reman.Now Bullseye the batmowheel maker is not a saint either,this is fact not made up.I bought a gt4088 batmowheel for the Mad stage 2,and guess what it is a powermax compressor wheel.(even marked on box)So you buy a billet wheel for a GT4088 which measures 64.7mm/88mm .72a/r and you end up with a 63.5mm/88mm .58a/r wheel.So they say it'll work it's almost the same???So when the cops pull you over and say why didn't you come to a complete stop at that stop sign and you respond I slowed down it's almost the same,and he tells you to step out of the car and pulls his knight stick out and starts to beating on you.You start yelling stop! stop! and he replies stop or slow down it's almost the same right?Just thought I would share,I work hard and expect to get what I pay for not almost what I pay for.Thanks.

so the saying is true, " if you want something done right, you got to do it yourself". go buy a cnc turning center and start cnc machining your own batmowheels, then you will get the tolerances you pay for.
