Turbo setup

Looking to get a better more reliable turbo setup that i can still run on stock fuel, still compounded, and not elite. Looked at I.I phatshaft setup, but would like to see what you guys think.

What's wrong with Elite's setups? I run their 71mm Tow Power atmosphere and couldn't be happier. There are a lot of modified stock turbo kits out there though. Industrial's is good but they use a K31 billet wheel for the atmosphere which doesn't move the air that the 6 blade Precision wheel Elite uses in their setup. River City Diesel and Swamps Diesel Performance also have modified stock setups.

Hey Jeff i don't want to bad mouth anyone, but I live in Pueblo, Co where Elite started and they practiced some unethical business tactics and rubbed some of my close friends the wrong way so i prefer not to give them my business. After looking at some other threads i think the batmowheels is the best option that will fit my budget.

Are you going to go with both batmowheels or just the LP batmowheel?

with just batmowheels, a wastegate probably wont be needed. If you still have your EGR in place then you really dont need one.

What he said. That is the main reason i am going with a batmowheel. I would do studs tho if you dont have them already.

Honestly, I wouldn't go the Batmowheel route. They just haven't been proven. I wouldn't spend $800 on something that hasn't been proven.

I believe Swamp's has a billet compound turbo setup similar to Elite's Tow Powers, but with a much cheaper price. Around $1,750, IIRC.

Swamp's will be building my turbos when the need arises.

The LP batmo has been proven. Rudys tested it and got more hp and lower egt's. Also people have reported that it cleans up the smoke on a big tune nicely. The HP batmo i dont believe has been proven. I dont think the LP batmo is a bad deal for $400.

I think the Swamp's route is the best route to go if you're on a budget. If you do decide to go with the batmowheel upgrade, I wouldn't invest in the high pressure wheel. The low pressure wheel is going to be where your gains are.....and they will be minimal.
