Turbo Surge question

Im not too sure if this question belongs in this forum, but i'll ask it anyways. When accelerating hard, I notice that my boost needle bounces around as my boost numbers raise. The needle however doesnt bounce around at low boost numbers. Am I experiencing "turbo surge" or is that something else?
What is your definition of "turbo surge" anyways??

Do you have your boost fitting in the aih or do you have it t'd into the map line?

After reading previous posts concerning this topic you should probably be feeling turbo surge and if not at least hearing it. It'll sound almost like air is being compressed and released repeatedly. Typically this will show the worst under 2000 rpm at WOT while towing but this isn't definate.

Yeah, Maintain thats a great way to explain turbo surge I have it horribly bad right now with my turbo...just has the banks wheel pushing 27-28lbs gettin ready to order a new turbo soon(this is kinda off topic but would the ats compressor and banks exhaust houseing be a good efficent set up?)

03F350 - - Turbo Surge will destroy your turbo! Not sure about the efficency of that setup. What kind of turbo are you getting? If it is a garret bb or turbonectics you plan on upgrading to, you may want to PM csipsd about it.
