batmowheel

Hey guys so I was looking at the batmowheel and was just wondering if anyone had one, and if they noticed a difference at all?

Are you referring to a stock batmowheel?? Or are you referring to a Pmax with a batmowheel?? I would say that either won't give you the performance you are looking for that corresponds to the $400 that you would spend. Also what year truck are you looking to put this on?? The 05-07 turbos have a smaller compressor wheel and need the covers machined out to accept a batmowheel since they are made for the 03-04 turbos.

Does it increase spool-up time, lower egts like they advertise?

I have one on my truck.I know the intake pitch sounds different for sure.i think my egts are maybe 100 to 150 lower,now this was way before I knew about the mad turbos.I don't think it was worth the money spent.

I've got it also. It lowers egts and definitely has a different intake sound. Seems like it builds boost faster too.

There has been A LOT of discussion as of recent about the batmowheels and whether or not they actually do anything and are they worth the $400 that is charged for them. I know in the case of the gt38r for the 7.3Ls they have shown a power decrease (according to Bill at PHP) and in the case of the stock 6.0 and powermax turbos, MPD has shown an increase of 10hp, 100ft-lbs of torque, and lower EGTs by 100+F. Now their results were with 190cc injectors and while the peak horse power only increased by 10hp, I am inclined to think that there were gains lower in the power band but without seeing the dyno plot, it's tough to tell. I think at the end of it all, I wouldn't expect earth shattering differences if you swapped out to a batmowheel and I think that is what most folks were wanting with it (basically a bigger turbo for $400) and this product just isn't it.

I have one and from what i see i have faster spool ups with around 150 degrees or so lower egts. Low end torque curve seems better also. If you have a reman turbo you will need a machined compressor housing because of the size difference. Rudys Diesel sells them. I personally like mine.

These are the kind of results that I would expect. Glad you like it.
