My opinion,.... Even if you have a stock tranny, you should definitely save for a VB and/or TC. The trannies in these trucks are usually the first to go when adding power. Stock 4r100's are worthless with power levels above stock.
On another note... Adding line pressure through tunes is fine, but if you want it done right, upgrade trans. It will be better on the transmission parts if the upgraded parts are doing the work instead of the tuning.
As for your turbo,... Surge is NOT good. You can reduce surge once you get used to the shift points by backing off the throttle just before it shifts.
A turbo will lose boost when shifting,... Or for that matter create vaccum. Instead of the turbo pushing air in, air will go out. And when it's bad (stock turbo) the compressor wheel will hit the housing creating a chirping or barking noise from the turbo. Usually followed by a swooshing noise from the intake area.
Truck is for SALE.
Looking for a GT4202 or similar sized BW turbo... PM me if you have one.
