Batmowheel

Posting for a buddy whose thinking about getting a batmowheel for his 6.0. What are the benefits of a batmo and is it worth the 400?! How hard is it to put in on a 6.0 turbo? Thanks

It will only fit an 03 turbo as a direct replacement//\. All the other stock turbos require machining of the compressor housing to accommodate it.

Is that a significant upgrade, or would you just be better off with a stage 1 mtw or something. I wonder how the hybrid would compare to stock 03 turbo with the batmowheel.

Yea as Mitch mentioned, there's more to upgrading a stock charger than just swapping out the wheel unless you have the 03-04 turbo. By the time it is all said and done you would be better off with a MTW Stage 1 for $850 shipped (not including a core charge).

A MTW Stage 1 will straight up kill an 03 turbo even with a batmowheel, let alone the hybrid or Stage 2 turbos. The reason for this is because the compressor wheels for all of the MTW turbos are significantly larger than the stock turbo and more efficient than the stock turbo compressor wheel. In all honesty, it wouldn't even really be close. Yes there may only be a 25hp difference (at worst) on the dyno with stock injectors and a MTW turbo but the MTW turbos will flow more air for a broader power band and lower EGTs as well as better fuel economy as well. Hope this makes sense.

Then comes the question of, Is a MTW stage 1 or Hybrid safe for those of us who don't have studs yet or is it just a failure waiting to happen?

Good to know, that will be next on my list. I want to make sure I get one soon before Adrian decides hes had enough of making turbos. I really really want one lol.

Sorry for the slight derail there. I could agree with everything I have read. Fork out an additional $450 and just get a bigger charger from MTW.

the larger turbo should be better on the tty bolts. shure there may be more boost, but also less drive pressure.

I imagine it would do just fine unless I get on the pedal which I can't not do lol. I don't drive like an azzhat and I'm conservative but I feel like it will blow anyways. Shes blown once (PO) before so I'm not sure if they even had the heads checked. Nate got with me a bit ago and I think we have made a plan for my truck. Studs first probably.
