Not worth the time or money for the minimal (if any) gains. Just throw a bigger charger in there.

what do you guys think? im fully capable of the work myself (been through alotta first n second gen dmaxes so just the cost of the wheel.

If you just want quicker spooling then swap in an LMM charger......bit less on the top end but better spooling than the LLY charger.

for all that work and the cost of another turbo, he might as well just do the bmw. and the fact the lmm charger is smaller (60.5mm vs. 63mm) i would stay will the lly since it will flow more air.

Like the guy said, it's not costing him anything but the BMW and on the LLY, you don't need to remove the turbo (from what I have read). Like the post above says, the LLY out flows the LMM

Now if you was having to pay a shop to do the work, I could see a turbo swap as more viable.

Edit:

Just be searching thru google and reports show around 30+ hp. what they also go on to say is you gain a some pull at the bottom end but loose a little at the top.

Trying to find an actual dyno sheet

I agree with what you're saying, just the OP asked for quicker spooling and a used LMM can be had for $200-300.

If you aren't concerned with max effort tunes then it's not a bad choice especially when towing.

I agree upgrade the trans first. Then look into upgrading the turbo or the wheel. Now if you were pulling your engine to do head gasket and studs, then i would def get the batmowheel. At least thats the route i'm taking. I don't think it would provide better fuel mileage but lower egts and no turbo lag is worth the 400 imho.

yeah thats what im thinkin...lookin into doin trans soon here and then deff thinkin doin the bmw. what i was findin in the dyno reports about 3k n above it leveled out but thought it was up some (but they were runnin alot harder 550hp) but i dont run that high much at all and they said bottom end was 30 -40 hp and up to like 70 i think one was lbs-ft of torque...

d-wreck3939 too bad i just hand the engine out in august doin head gaskets and studs haha thats what i thought too. naw i think ill deffinately do it this spring. if i do ive been lookin i might be able to do it in the truck...tight fit tho gotta deffinately remove the intake bridge and maybe get the air side cover over the manifolds. ill update if it does work without pullin.
