Turbo swap and BatMowheel question. . .

I'm in the midst of pulling the turbos on a '09 F450 WH, replacing them with BD's reman units, figured it would be an opportune time to throw in some Batmowheels. Can't seem to find any threads of anyone installing them in the HP side tho. Didn't know if they were worth it to put in both sides or just the atmo. Also, being these would be newly rebuilt, would I still need to replace any seals or gaskets?

BatMoWheels are an absolutle worth upgrade. More horsepower, more torque, lower EGTs, 10% more flow. I plan on getting a pair for my truck and doing some dyno testing. A lot of my friends have them on D-max, cummins and powerstreokes not to mention gas cars too. Well worth it. You will not need any new gaskets or such. Unbolt the compressor housing and undo the nut for the compressor wheel. You will need to hold the turbine wheel so it doesnt spin.

I highly recommend both. 10% more flow on the low pressure and high pressure is great. Faster spooling by a couple hundred rpm

Yes you can. There is a guy on the army (Jerry) that did a write up of how to install the batmowheel's without removing the turbos. I think his username is 08bigrig.

You are much more money ahead to buy a 71mm from elite or RCD than spending $800 on batmowheels

Thinking about getting rid of the stock 6.7 turbo?
