turbo surge?????

When im driving about 35mph the motor seems to surge about 200+ rpm i just started feeling this today. i have an airraid cold air intake and have put a free flowing muffler no cat and just installed a hypertech III progamer. Is this the dreaded surge I have heard about ? I have the programer set on level 3 should i turn it down? What is the fix for this? Thanks guys

I dont think its surge. Try unloading the hypertech and drive it stock to see if that is the problem if not reload it and go from there. I used to have the Hypertech and sometimes it would do funny things and I would just unload it then reload it and problem went away.

probably not turbo surge. Dump the POS Hypertech and get a DP-Tuner chip. much better product.
