You guys are correct, i noticed it mainly only does it when the throttle is quickly let off after a moderate pull.
I don't see how changing the turbo or wastegate will help turbo surge though. Boost being in the pipe has to get released regardless of what turbo is on there. The wastegate being internal or external just helps control the boost, it has nothing to do with preventing surge from happening. It only helps regulate boost creep.
I noticed thoroughbreddiesel sells a "blow off valve kit" to prevent surge. I haven't seen a kit for the 2011+ trucks though, but it's mainly uses the TPS sensor to operate the opening/closing of it.
Seems like a pretty good investment to prolong the turbo life. Even if turbo surge only happens every so often, happening never is always better.
Any others use this??
