Anyone put one of the new batmowheels in for the stock 6.4 turbo yet? If so, could you do a write up on how to do it and what timeline it takes. I cant find anything on this for the 6.4 even on the other forum. I have seen where Rudys or someone installed them on a customers truck, but dont know of anyone whom did this themselfs or even if you could do this yourself say in your driveway at home. Thanks guys.

I have been calling Diesel performance shops around my area and it looks like the average cost is around 700 bucks. Very tempting to let someone else fool with it

For 700 Bux! Ouch! 700 plus 300 would of got you a Elite atmosphere 71mm turbo! But you still would of have get it in also.

There is a write up on removing the turbos floating around here somewhere. You could use that then separate the tubos (they are pressed together) then remove the atmosphere turbo compressor housing (normally 1/2" or 13'' bolts) next your going to have to undo the compressor wheel its self. (Normally a 12 point 10mm or 3/8" nut. and reverse threaded.) Now pull off the old wheel and install the new batwheel. Torque the nut back down on the wheel (I think I saw some where it was 17Ft lbs need to look it up)Then put the compressor housing back on. Ensure you match mark everything on the compressor housing as you take it apart. Once all back together press the turbos back together and then put them back in.
Here is a link to the removal: detailed write up with pics on how to remove turbos cab on - PowerStrokeArmy
Keep looking in the thread and you will see a Snap on Tool that you will need for the uppipes.

I am happy that someone came on here and did in fact at least give a better idea of what it takes to do the batmowheel install. I TOTALLY agree with LILGSX on the thought that I could have an elite 71 billet turbo for the same price and then I can just install that myself.

Well I got a price of 500 to install. So 500 plus 250 for the wheel. Since I don't plan on ever doing injectors or added fuel this will work for me. If I keep a vehicle for more than 5 years it would be a miracle so this mod is suites me

You are ahead already because you got a great deal on wheel! They are $350 at most places.

Probably just a typo or maybe he got excited posting and thought he might get a good deal on one. :hehe:
It was a typo. I got it for $350. Which I think is a decent deal. Not sure what that comment was about me getting excited "Thinking I got a good deal". I got the sale price. I don't think I got some huge deal, just a few bucks off retail
