Repair Shop in Knoxville, TN

First off I'm currently deployed so it makes things twice as difficult. I'm not sure what's going on with my rig but it sounds like turbo surge to me but I'm not sure. My wife tries to explain what it's doing but she's got me worried so I want to get it looked at. I don't want to risk ruining the turbo or the engine. I have a wicked wheel waiting to be installed when I get home. Any suggestions on a shop to take it to? Thanks for your help.

I'm worried about her driving it period much less a few hours. Should I be so worried or is it something that isn't too serious?

why not have her call a reputable shop and let them talk her thru trouble shooting? i know some shops have women answering the phone(who are very knowledgeable)
