Question Upgrading stock turbo advice

Hey guys,
still trying to do something with my surging stock turbo..............would you guys try these two items? I've heard mixed reviews about Ron's turbos. Should I send him the wheel for balancing like he says? What's the difference between the purple ats housing and this one?

I would try the ww first. Works for some doesn't for others. An ats housing is a definate cure for surge. However with the steep price I would try the ww first

the banks kit there is a rebuild.. the ats housing is for the exhaust side of the turbo..you dont need taht...you should try the wicked wheel..or if you have some extra steam and just really need the surging gone..get the ats housing for the intake side. its like 420 bucks...it cures the surge. if you want a pretty loud turbo get the ats housing and the wicked wheel...

Thanks guys.............So if I get a compressor housing is it worth changing the stock wheel to a WW? Or just get the housing and keep stock wheel? Is a turbine housing necessary or just replace whole turbo if I'm gettin in that deep?

for surge just get the housing...i did the wheel because i had to take the turbo off anyways and figured it wouldnt hurt seeing how it was cheap. with the housing you dont need to take the turbo off..so i also figured if the wheel didnt help my surge issues (not that i had any) i could still get the housing and be all set. it was a win-win for me.

Ok......this is great input. I was leaning on the WW alone, but if I pull the turbo to do the wheel I might as well put a housing on while I'm in there? Or no? Are there any performance advantages of doing both? Is there a particular housing that works better with the stock wheel?
I'm really stuck on the housing decision now. I only want to mess wityh this turbo once but don't have 1600 for a 38r.

The WW cured my surge I had when pulling my 5er. Im 22k ish fully loaded.

You do not need to pull the turbo to do the wheel just the few bolts that hold on the housing. they are 12 pt, do not use a 6pt scoket! you will round them!

Pick up a used 1.0 exhaust housing and stick a WW on there... You can start with the WW first. It got rid of all my surge.
