Tom,
I appreciate the thread link of the failures.
I want a turbo that will tow moderate/heavy loads and daily drive well. I've been going back and forth between a batmowheel, EPR S366, or II 366 phatshaft. I want it to spool fairly quick being I mostly tow with my pickup.

Sorry to clutter the OP thread.

EPR 366 spools faster than the II because the turbine is a little smaller

Yellowchevy no worries about all the post I'm glad I'm seeing all this info cuz I did this upgrade so that downbthebroad when I do twins it will hopefully give me even better power and response but after hearing about the issues I'm worried about what will happen with it and a billet s475 combined :/ also wishing I had listened to tim at sjd and had my wheel balanced before install but his turbo guy said it should be factory balanced

My plan was to go the same route as you with an S475 over top of my stock turbo but due to resent event's I'm considering an S366 or Garrett 4088.
I've heard the same thing, get the whole assembly balanced.

On a side know my wife is from Harrisonville MO. I lived in Kansas city from 2009(part of the year) 2010 and some of 2011. Hopefully we'll be back some day for more than just visits to her parents place.

Well hot damn its a small world lol how the heck did a Canadian meet a harrisonville girl?

But I'm now thinking if the wheel don't grenade I may have to pull it out and balance it next time my truck.is down for awhile or this winter but if it does grenade I'll def be getting a s366 for twins or be finding me the right single for my needs.

Haha, I'm not a Canadian. I'm from North Dakota originally. The company I work for is based out of Lenexa, KS. I was on a project in Springfield IL and after I was done there I got moved to the office in Kansas City, that's where I met my wife; she works for the same company. We got moved up here to Canadian for project.

With finding out about the batmowheel I'm looking at an S366 myself, there's LOTS of options.

Hopefully in a year we'll be heading back to the states.

Some interesting info came out today from BorgWarner. They compared their 80mm cast wheel to a Batmo 80mm.....

So has anyone herd of the stock turbo replacement wheels going bad or problems with them?
All of these storys/problems seem to be with the new bigger chargers even the flow comparison.

I think it depends on how you drive/what you use the pickup for. If you aren't racing all the time I'd think you'd be ok. Just my thoughts.

The wife and I will be back in Missouri the 3rd week end in November, should be nice.
