surging question

i have a ts performance chip along with a diy intake and a farmboy exhaust. i have alot of turbo surge is this common. im only running21 psi (thats the most i have ever seen). Would another compressor wheel help me out. what about a boost tube do they work? im only getting like 15mpg and i have a 6 spd i read about guys getting 20 what do i need to do a diff. chip? I dont run it that hard either. Thanks

You can pull the red line off the wastegate. That's not gonna fix the surge, but you should get 25psi+. Most say the ATS ported housing the the one sure cure for the surge. Some still have surge with new wheels.

I've got the same problem with the surge. Looking into the ATS Ported Housing. Are any mods needed to connect the 4" inlet vs. the stock 3"?
