Batmo wheel

Thinking of buying myself a Batmo replacement wheel for my turbo this Christmas. I don't have my heads studded yet, and I do have the atlas 40 tune on my ficm. That's the only tuning I have so far. I am wondering if the wheel that claims to add 100 ft/lbs of torque is safe with out studs. Any input would be good. 2004 f-340 fx4 used for towing 32 ft 5th wheel

It made 10rwhp and 100rwtq with an 03 turbo and 190/100 injectors. If you don't have an 03 10 blade turbo then the Batmowheel won't fit without machining the compressor housing. With an otherwise stock truck it isn't worth the $400 especially if you have to machine the housing on top of that.

If you have an 03 style turbo it will fit. That includes early 04 engines. If it is a later 13 blade turbo the compressor housing must be machined to accept the Batmowheel. I thought I said that already.
