werid sounds when climbing hills

I took my truck to the snow this weekend and Ive never driven it in that cold of weather since I did all my mods. And I noticed at about 65-70 climbing some pretty steep hills I would get a sound coming from the engine compartment that was like a whoosh whoosh whoosh over and over until i backed off the gas and it would get less noticeable. anyone know what this is?

Ok, potentially very bad. Like bending your turbo fins backwards or snapping the shaft.

eh, it take a very very old turbo, or alot of power to do that, and I doubt his DP chip is doing that.

Surge killed my turbo rather quickly after getting my chip. My turbo only had like 90k miles on it.

Alot of people do the Wicked Wheel to cure the surge but it's not 100% effective. I just went with the ATS housing and haven't had any hint of surge.
