Bat-o-Wheel installation info needed.

Thinking of the batowheel installation for the low and high.
I know replacing the turbos is better but I'm still Under warranty and it would be easier to replace the input wheels than upgrading turbos along with the tunes I'm having developed. My tuner wants me to stay with stock turbos for now

I think low is what I want to try first and I've never worked with turbos.

How hard is it to replace them and are they worth it.

Does anybody know of a web site that goes through the installation that can you please send me the link to it?

Also do you think they are worth it for a few more PSI?

Thanks!

You meant to have this in the 6.4 right?

Thinking about getting rid of the stock 6.7 turbo?
Check this out... and research before buying

Yes sir.

I found one video on you tube but it only shows where everything has already been taken apart and not actually performing the take down or installation.


I was hoping to find someone that had a little bit more detail on removing the housings and taking things apart. My luck I would end up screwing the turbos up. Kind of guess the instructions will be weak or don't exist.

I know Jerry is a member on PSA and I think he may be a member here. I cant recall his username right now. Anyways, if you are looking into the high and low pressure wheels, you would be money ahead to do Elite's or RCD's drop in 71mm atmosphere. The dyno sheets prove this. Also, I have seen a few Batmowheel explosions which would be another thing to look into

This one?
RCD 71mm Drop In Low Pressure Atmosphere Turbo

Only $500 more than doing both wheels and the guy that did the video already switched to the 71mm so that might be a good idea...

THANKS!

ive put dual batmo's on a truck for a customer, had recomended to him to just go with a 71 but he thought he new better. sure it makes more noise he was happy for a week, then the placebo wore off and he realized it was no better than stock.
out came the wallet (again) and he has a 71...

Thanks for the feedback, the lady I work with tunes just about bit my head off when I asked her about those, she said the same thing just upgrade to 71 for now.

LOL she's the greatest
