I just towed my boat 2300 miles round trip to Florida and back. My boat is an estimated 6K to 7K. When running about 70 mph and pulling a decent grade in high gear, the boost would build up and a few times I would hear like a studdering noise from the turbo. A few times I saw the boost gauge needle flutter ever so slightly. If I would donshift it would go away. When it would happen I would just back off the throttle a bit and it would stop.
If so I am leaning towards the ATS housing. Yeah I've read that the wicked wheel will cure this but housing seems to be an easier and maybe a better fix.
Also as a side note, the most boost I get is 20 psi acording to my gauge. Does that sound about right?
You can see my mods in my signature. Thanks
Yep, that was surge. BAD! I used to have it until i got a WW, it cured it. The housing is considerably more expensive, like 4 or 5 times the cost. I would do the WW first, then if you still have surge, then get the housing. WW cures it in most cases. Also to answer your other question, with just the 80 tunes from jody, 20 PSI is about right.
