Parts list? Batmowheels

I am getting a good deal on a set and just want to know if there is anything else I need to buy when doing this job? Anything that needs to be replaced once it is taken apart and cannot be reused? things along those lines.

I thought I read somewhere that if you crack the oil feed lined the washers or something had to be replaced who knows.

My 2 cents worth, The low pressure is fairly straight forward & you shouldn't need any extra parts unless you damage something coming apart. Down pipe has to come loose to access shaft from turbine wheel end for holding purposes when undoing the nut on compressor side. The compressor housing has to come off to access the wheel your going to change. there are 5 bolts, the one in the very bottom will test your patience & make you wish you had never started the job..... but it does come out. You will need to remove the fuel cooler/ x over tube assembly for access. There are a few seals here in the tube but they are normally reusable. Oil feed lines will need to come off and out of the way, there are seals on the banjo fittings that may need replaced. probably have to remove exhaust back press sensor also when cooler/cross over tube comes out.

The low pressure Batmowheel upgrade is where the gains in performance are made & from all accounts, there is very little, to no gain at all in changing the Hi pressure wheel.
I believe, but don't quote me on this, to change the HP compressor wheel the complete turbo would need to come out for disassembly to access the the turbine shaft for holding purposes to let go the compressor wheel nut. That opens up a whole other can of worms! This and no real gain is probably why most don't change the HP, only the LP.

Maybe there is a trick to getting that HP wheel off in place, I don't know.

Td-5 great info , as mentioned yes I did have the high and low side , but was able to have the turbos off to do the swap outs so it was a cake walk , and then took them out a few weeks later for larger turbo set up ,so sorry have no input on the performance side of it - goodluck

You can't use an air gun to zip the wheels off like the older trucks? I don't have the money to put into a larger turbo and I don't plan on doing gaskets or studs anytime soon either so I figured I would do this and see where it gets me.

Don't do that, you're better off doing it right or not doing it at all. When you damage the bearings in your turbo from spinning it with no oil flow you'll be out a lot more than just a couple wheels.

As Brett stated I had my mind set on a LP batmowheel. I ended up going with a 71mm lp turbo. I still have the batmowheel but I never installed it.

Unless I can get someone to give me a 71mm for what I paid for the bats I can't go that route.
