it is never to late the wicked wheel wil raise the rpm that surge occures at but not elliminate it, the ATS ported houseing will elliminate surge all together. oh yeah you get quite the whistle out of the WW with a slightly slower spool up and a little less boost maybe 2or 3 lbs

what will a ATS turbo housing actually do for me?

it will eliminate turbo surge it also has a bigger ported intake thus letting in a greater volume of air

I have the WW and the ATS housing on my 7.3, and still hit 30 psi with it. I also have the actuator line dissconected, and the wast gate rod shortened 3 turns as well, works great and sounds like an F-16 when you get on it. I put it all on at about 120,000, and have had no problems.

I too am also looking at getting a WW. What does dissconecting the actuator line do? and what does turning the wast gate rod 3 turns do? Just wondering. I've got a 2000 F350 crew cab and am always looking for free mods. Thanks for the help.

Disconnecting the line stops the wastgate from starting to bleed off boost early, they are set to start bleeding at about 5 psi. Shortening the rod lets the wastgate go to a higher boost before blowing off, so you spool up a little faster, and can achieve a couple of lbs more boost, makes up for the drop in boost from the stock to WW. Not really recommended without a boost gauge, and helps to have a boost fooler on the map.

I just put a Reman on with a WW. How much boost do you lose? With the stock charger I could get 30psi, but now I only get 25/26. Does this sound right or do I have a leak somewhere?
