intake or turbo flutter

I noticed when pulling hills that there is "fluttering" sound from the intake or the turbo.
I just put on the AFE stage 2 but I don't have the exhaust on yet. Is it getting too much air (if there is such a thing)? Will the exhaust help get rid of the fluttering?
Is this "turbo fart". If heard of it before but never experienced it.

Sounds like you have the beginning stages of surge. Time for a ATS housing or a WW...

Whicked wheel might stop it, ATS Compressor housing will.

x2

Mine started surging after putting my AFE on as well. Surged REAL bad after getting a DP Tuner. WW took care of it for me, even running the 80hp high altitude tow up 10k ft passes in the Rockies towing my Jeep and pushing the truck as hard as EGT's would allow.

I think I'll try the wicked wheel first. I'm sure It'll be cheaper.

Where are you guys buying a wicked wheel, and are there options for the wicked wheel like different styles or something.
I don't want to buy the wrong one and be money down the toilet.

Yeah it is. All aftermarket compressor wheels are the same basically. Wicked Wheel is a brand name. I think superior wheel is another.
