Turbo Surge Question?
OK...by the threads I've been reading on here I am pretty sure I just experienced a bit of turbo surge. Am I correct?
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
