I was just on FTE diesels website and saw a Batmo wheel for a 7.3, never saw one before. Are they any good? Better than a WW2? Thanks!

Batmowheel... Junk. Proven junk.

Looks cool! LOL

Best Compressor wheel on the market IMHO... RiffRaff...

I'd link to it, but the mods like to ban people that link to products.

The RR wheel, WW2 and BD's billet wheel for the stock turbo are all about the same in terms of performance.

Do we actually know that or are we still assuming? I have a BD wheel and I like it.
I have a RR wheel on the shelf, its not mine but I could swap it for the sake of testing.
Anyone want to send me a WW2 for 2 weeks?
I have 2 dyno's in the area even, but I'm not sure I could afford that.
I can afford to go to the track 3 times though.....

They all spool faster, prevent surge, and build a little more boost... So yes we know they are all similar in performance

There's a reason there is always activity....lol.

I was under the impression that all the billet wheels were the same just sold by different companies.

I look at this site about every day, along with FTE. I enjoy reading other peoples problems and the amount of knowledge people have on these trucks. I've learned a TON reading, and thankfully I haven't had to put much of anything to use other than a few mods here and there.

Now, with that being said. The one nice thing I like about FTE is, its all in one location for the most part. Anything and everything to do with a 99-03 7.3L is all contained within one thread, whereas this site has it broken down into different sections. But that's just me.

Back in 2005 I bought a L99 F250 CC. That's when I started learning about the 7.3. I sold that truck in 2007 and bought a 2003 cummins 3500 CCD. I had that truck for 2 years then sold it because I had stopped racing. 3 years down the road in 2012 I started racing again and needed another truck. I found a pretty good deal on a '97 F350 CCD with only 153k on it. Perfect condition truck, but I did not like the styling of it. I knew I wanted something newer, was trying to stay around the $12k price range, which put me in the market for a late model 7.3, early 6.0, or 3rd gen Ram.

I love the styling of the fords, but (hate to say it) loved the power and fuel mileage the cummins has but did not like the truck itself, so the search began and I found my 2002 F350 with 130k miles in almost perfect shape for only $10k and haven't regretted it since. This will probably be the last truck I ever own I plan on keeping it that long. Only drive about 5000 miles a year, there is no reason to spend more money on a truck that will do what this one will for a fraction of the price.
