Turbo Surge question

so i just installed a ts chip and now my turbo surges alot. i have it on the 75hp setting. it seems to surge over 15lbs when pulling a hill and gettin on the throttle. i know i need to install a whicked wheel or something of the sort but my question is, is it bad to keep driving it while it is surging? should i put the chip on stock? will it kill my turbo or anything else?

If your turbo is indeed surging, then yes... it will kill your turbo if left unchecked. I've heard that the wicked wheel helps tremendously with turbo surging and an ATS housing pretty much eliminates it.

I really want the wicked wheel just for the noise to be honest... I don't surge at all, but the sound it makes - makes it worth buying all together!

$80 - $100 for a Wicked Wheel
$500-ish for an ATS Housing

Here's a good link about turbo surging, even has some pictures on the last page that show what surging will do to your turbo if you let it continue...

What is turbo surge?

No, you dont need the ATS housing. The wicked wheel eliminates 98% of surge, and the ATS housing covers the other 2%

Is your EBPV disconnected? I had surge when on hotter superchips tunes and when I unplugged the EBPV the surge went away! I thought I needed a wheel but not anymore!!
