batmowheels or the 71mm?

my 2008 has a spartan tuner 5" down pipe back exhaust, and an afe intake, I am thinking about either installing both the lp and hp batmowheel turbo wheels or the 71mm from elite. how much would this help my truck as far as performance wise, egt's and speed? i know it will clear up the smoke tremendously. Would i have to stud the truck to run the batmo's? i know i will have to with the 71, what other airflow upgrades should i install? I already have the down pipe, should i look into powerstroker67's dp, what about a cac pipe? newb question what is a cac pipe? intercooler? thanks for the help guys

I would get the 71mm billet turbo from Elite and if anything add the batmowheel on the high pressure turbo. The 71 billet will give you a 150*-200* egt drop and adding the batmo to the hp turbo would only make that drop more. Power has been showin on the dyno with the 71 billet with a 50 hp gain over the stock turbo on a tuned truck with intake and exhaust.

Yes you will have to have studs to run both batmowheel in the stock turbos as you will be about 55 psi of boost with the big tunes.

So.........if one were to do the 71mm atmosphere turbo upgrade, would it give you 300hp tune like power while your set at a 250hp tune setting. As an example.

More or less, but the higher your tune, the more you will see out of the turbo.

71mm without a doubt. Easily the best budget option out there. The power you get for the money makes it very worth it. Not to mention the potential power down the road.

Yeah, but you gotta do head studs for the 71mm right?

You really need head studs with stock turbos and a big tune, so studs with any turbo upgrade would be ideal.
