About to buy turbo upgrades.

The other night when i was coming home from the shooting range I had to pass some people on the 2 lane road in the fl keys. we were going about 60 and i passed and i thought i had to be going 100+ mph and i looked down and it said 75(it took a while to pass). I'm guessing the turbo starts to suffocate at those speeds. It took a while to pass. my friends silverado 5.3 has much better top end. he woulda put buss lenghts on me.

So the solution im guessing is:
ATS PORTED SHROUD COMPRESSOR HOUSING - ATS6355

BD-Power Turbo Boost Builder Wastegate - BD10471
Xtreme Diesel's X-Wheel Compressor Wheel - JR170293

please give me some input before i buy.. thanks.

The ats compressor housing and the x wheel actually are more for curing turbo surge not a performance option. Its more of a turbo longevity mod. I see you don't have a boost guage. I would add the boost gauge first to see what your psi is running. Are you experiencing turbo surge or stall? It would be easier to tell with a gauge.

Well Im not saying it won't because Im not sure if your experiencing turbo surge. Usually you won't get it unless your pulling a load. Actually I would get a boost gauge so you can monitor the turbo boost or psi and it can help you determine if your boosting like your supposed too. Can you describe what is going on with your turbo or how your truck is running. You said it took a long time to go from 60-75?

yes i think it hits a brick wall at 80. i think i went up to 80 but i looked down and it said 75. but when i punch it it pulls very nicely from 60-70. i did have 5 people in the truck.

i have a brand new intake but not fuel filter.

Hmm use your sct to check for any codes right now and post them up. Other then that does it seem to run fine? Could be a weak hpop or possible fuel pressure problem. Check for codes first.

Yep you sure can. They refer to them as soft codes as they don't set the ses light. I would do that first and like Diesel freak said change your fuel filter if you don't know the last time it was changed. Should change them every 10-15 thousand.

Also if you get any codes reset them and drive for a day or two again then check them again and post any that you might have
