A question for PowerMax users.

I'm wondeing how much lower your EGT's are on average after installing one or if you didn't see any change. Also did you see a change in fuel use better or worse. Thanks for any insight into this.

If you change the compressor wheel out for a Batmowheel it will spool faster, make a bunch more power and run up to 200* cooler.

I saw about a 200* drop at WOT but my truck is also 12k lbs every day.
Now difference in MPG's.

Do the batmowheels help the Powermax also?

Yes they have a Batmowheel for the Powermax too. MPD dyno'd a 6.0 Powermax with a Batmowheel and 190cc injectors yesterday. The torque gauge was broken on the dyno but it put down and extra 31rwhp. Based on that I would guesstimate it made around 150rwtq or more over the stock Pmax. The 03 turbo with a Batmowheel and 190's made 11rwhp and about 110rwtq over the stock 03.

Stock wheel on the right, Batmowheel on the left and below. The stock wheel is cast and the Batmowheel is billet and lighter with a different fin configuration that is more effective at stuffing air into the engine. They are manufactured by Bullseye Power.

Where did you order yours from and you said they make them for the stock turbo?
