Biggest injectors with a batmo

So I was at Maryland Performance Diesel tonight talking with Craig . i was trying to think up a strategy to own the local dirt drags. Craig told me I should let him do 190's and a batmo on my stock turbo. Have any of you fellas run a similar setup? Lets say heavy towing wasn't a worry. If I went with this I'd do a water meth setup. My idea was to go with 175's and a billet stage 1 mad turbo. Craig def know a hell of a lot more than me though!

I don't want to be a negative nancy here but Craig is full of ****. Whatever you do, don't waste your money on a batmowheel for a stock turbo. The data that Craig provided only showed a nominal performance gain with 190s and for $400, your money would be way better spent somewhere else. I don't think (if you ask around) you'll find anyone who would say to ditch the cast wheel for a billet one and with 190s it will be WAY to much fuel for that turbo to even dream of cleaning up. Your original plan to go with a Stage 1 is a better option but don't go with 190s unless you are going big on the turbo. I can tell you man (as I'm sure others can too) 190s are A LOT of fuel. Also just stick with the cast Stage 1 wheel, for the money you would have into that you could just get a Hybrid. Hope this helps man.

I wouldn't recommend a batmowheel for anything it's a joke and gives you the slightest gains in spool up at most I can't tell a difference at all on my setup and I can only assume it is less noticeable on a stock charger

Not to stir the pot, but we have a 6.0l at the shop running larger injectors than the 155cc with the stock turbo. We do have a w/m kit installed. It has dyno'd consistently at 525 hp

With that said, we have tested the batmowheel in several different turbo models in a "head to head" style for the 7.3l. There will be another wheel available to the market shortly which has proven larger boost PSI and attacks turbo lag.

http://www.dieselsite.com/wickedwhee...s-instock.aspx

You can ask 5 different shops how to build a 550hp 6.0l and chances are, they will have different methods to do this.

Good luck on your build!

Stock turbo is one thing paying 400 bucks for a piece of billet that makes nothing better is another

I had a Powermax with a Batmowheel and I do believe it moves more air than thhe cast wheel, but I don't know if it's enough to justify the price. I ran it with 175/75's and even turned down it was a hot smokey pig but my injectors weren't acting right.

An MTW Hybrid with 155/30's or 175 stock nozzle would make for a nice street setup.

Oh yeah, a Batmowheel will only fit a stock 03 turbo without machining the housing on top of the $400.
