Turbo wheels

I've got my turbos out to rebuild, seals are bad,I don't have enough for towing turbos just going to rebuild them. Been reading a lot about Batmowheels and Billet wheels. I'm a bit confused on witch to get for this turbo. Can someone lean me in the right direction and whom to buy them from? I have EGR delete 4" straight pipe DPF delete and AFE intake stage 2 upgrade if that helps.

You can get a batmowheel for the atmo turbo. I have heard the gains are not worth the money for the HP turbo.

So the low pressure turbo is worth it to get the Batmowheel for? And what for the high pressure?

Yes the LP turbo is where the gains are. This is why most people upgrade the LP turbo to the 71 or 72mm turbo and leave the HP turbo alone. That is what I will be doing in the future

I pull a 5er ( the correct way) from time to time. In your opinion just changing the low-pressure turbo wheel with the Batmowheel and leaving the high-pressure loan will be my best bet and benefit?

That should work well. From the tests rudys did its a little bump in power and lower egt's which should be perfect for towing.

If you have the money the 71mm low pressure turbo from elite or rcd would work awesome as well.

Thanks for your input. Is the 71mm from Rudy's a drop in as well?

It is a drop in turbo. It seems to work well with the stock HP turbo. Jeff is running the 71mm turbo. When I have the money it is the turbo I will be going with.
