I see its only about 35 hp gain for an lbz, if i get a batmowheel would i need go do anything else or just drop it in and give er' hell? How do they sound? Does it spool up pretty good?

there's a couple threads up for Batmowheel, i've been told it's about a 2hr swap. I'm planing on doing mine in a couple months. Bill says it gives an average of 36hp with quicker low end spool up. give Bill a call he can tell you everything you need to know.

If you look through the threads, it might only be 36hp, but it is also 100ft/lbs of torque down low. I think that was of a LB7 dyno run.

I don't know which truck is only a 2 hour job, the LB7's or the newer ones . I am putting in a new turbo with a batmomax and I am 5 hours in, just ready to put everything back together. I think for the LLY's, LBZ's and maybe the newer ones, you need to pull the turbo, then take the cover off and put the new wheel in.

Does the turbo need to be re-balanced after installing a Batmowheel?

No. The Batmo is a billet wheel so balancing isnt an issue.

To the OP. Get the BatMo, port and polish, get new vanes and clip the turbine wheel.
