ATS Housing Vs. Wicked Wheel...or Both?
Since installing my S&B intake I have noticed the turbo surge in my truck getting progressively worse and worse. First only when towing uphill and now to the point when just accelerating uphill without a load.
My question is, which of the 2 common cures for surge is better: ATS Housing or Wicked Wheel? Or Both?
I understand that the ATS housing is significantly more expensive but from what I have read it seems to be more effective than the Wicked Wheel. Is this true? I don't plan to do any further mods besides an MBRP 4" TB exhaust which is on order if that makes a difference between which one would be a better fit for my situation.
Also, I am concerned about the noise of the WW from inside the cab. This truck is my daily driver (100+ daily miles) and I am frequently on the phone talking to customers. Is the ATS housing also going to increase the noise level for the turbo?
Everyones help is GREATLY appreciated.
