Pmax billet wheel to use

ok, looking for some opinions. Getting ready to built a turbo and looking for opinions on the WW2 for the Pmax against the KTS single plane pmax wheel. I have a Batmo sitting on the self that I used before but after using the KTS SP wheel I want to stick with a SP wheel. Just not sure which one. I'll be leaving my current SP wheel in my current Pmax and buying a new Pmax to build off of which is why I need the wheel.

Just curious why the switch? You already have a pmax with a single plane wheel but want to buy a new pmax and put a new single plane wheel in it?


The differences between most of the wheels is going to be very small. The biggest difference will be between single plane and dual plane wheels. If you put any of the single plane wheels up against each other... I would venture to say that you would see very little to no difference on the butt dyno or the real dyno. Most of all the turbo shops already by the wheels from the same source... lol... most of them are even the exact same wheel but just call it different things.

I'm going to be installing my 04 turbine and 04 turbine housing and vanes at the same time. The Pmax whistle is starting to get to me and I really don't want to go back to the 04 turbo even though I still may since I just rebuilt it.

IMO I would go with a WW2 if your going to a 13 blade turbine, I think you'll run out up top with a 11 blade single plane.

The WW2 for the powermax is a 11 blade single plane like the KTS 11 blade wheel but taller and maybe a few other minor differences.

Oh my bad, thought it was a 6x6 DP like for the stock turbos. I know the 13 blade turbine and a 64.7 SP is not a good combo and runs out of air on top. The batmo actually made more HP than the 11 blade SP on the 64.7.

So you are trying to make a "stage 1" turbo...

13 bladed turbine with a pmax billet wheel?

I might actually be able to help you with that... and maybe throw in a .72ar race cover.
