Any real power gains from a WW?

I did a quick search and couldnt really find what I was after.....

I just ordered a WW to help cure some surge issues I'm having. My question is, Will a WW give me any REAL gains? Or will it just help clear up my surge issues, and make noise?
Does it help with EGTs?

I know that ill lose a couple pounds of boost on the top end but I can afford to lose a couple I guess.

It only helps with surge and wistles a lil louder. It wont add any power at all.

I noticed the noise and a slightly quicker spool up, worth it IMO.

I don't know from personal experiance yet, I haven't installed a WW in my yellow truck. Have 2 sitting on the shelf, next to all my other spare and new parts for my PSD's.

I would think it might not add power, but just make the power you have more useable... Example: if you were climbing a hill under the correct conditions to make the turbo start surging, and you have to back out of the fuel to compensate, and with the WW installed, you don't have to back out of it, under these conditions, you have more USEABLE power... 'cause you can keep yer foot in it and make the climb to the top without turbo surge. So, more power, no. Just no loss of power under these conditions.

Reguardless, I hope to find the time to install mine soon... yellow truck needs it. Red truck, not so much, as it's an E99. It does need a DP tuner though...

THey actually decrease power but make it safer on the turbo. Thats about it. An ATS ported housing does the same thing but does nott loose power if anything you gain some air flow with the 4 inch inlet.

Yea, I always laugh when I read somebody quoting that 3 HP LOSS

I came from a dyno test that, in two successive runs with only the change of the wheel, showed -3HP ((AS IF every run was supposed to result in the exact same HP figure.....)

You can run an engine a dozen times on a dyno and you'd get a dozen different numbers that would be within a couple of horsepower up/down. Only someone who knew nothing about dynos could not see the two runs were, statistically, the same

I dont really expect much, I was just curious. Like I said my main concern is cleaning up the surge, so hopefully itll do that.
Hopefully itll be here monday or tuesday with my leveling kit.

Thanks guys

If memory serves me correctly don't you have some upcoming dyno time? Maybe a before and after run? If I'm thinking of someone else forget I said anything.
