Question Help on Turbo Upgrades

I'm going to install a different turbo housing and maybe a WW. I'm wondering what benefits I will see from each mod or drawbacks.
I'm making the changes to fix the turbo chatter I get when I'm under a high boost situation. Any suggestions on what types or makes I should get?

High Tech Turbo has their own make of WW and housing which is just as good as the ATS version but lower in price - who would have ever guessed that?? As with any of HTT's products, they are backed by a heck of a company. I've had nothing but great experiences with HTT as well as my customers. Hope this helps.

Not sure about the housing but im running a Garret Ball Bearing and its awsome. Almost not lag and boost pressures at 40psi.. Ive never found a truck that spools faster than this one.

I would install the WW just for the sound, but it will help with surge also.

You might want to check with vitalidle, he has the Gillette hi flow on the way to him, he may be able to help with that.

Hey Straycat. I PM'd Vitalidle about the plate so I'm to see how He likes it.

Seems like awhile back someone did a thread on a new turbo I don't remember the brand but He wasn't happy with it seems like the stock injectors weren't delivering enough fuel to gain the benefits or something like that I don't recall exactly that's why I was looking into the GDS BB Turbo and any info I can get on it.

So is he hahaha,
I seem to remember that thread, but wasn't the problem that he had too much turbo, and couldn't get it to light, I don't know, can't remember.
