Surge fix?

Wanting to get rid of my turbo surge. Already have a wicked wheel laying around just wondering if I should do the ww and the ported housing both or just one or the other?

you only need 1 or the other.
the wicked wheel usually cures surge. if it does not you need to use the ported housing.

I had read the ww was kinda like a band-aid and not a real fix so I thought maybe I would be better off with the ported housing. Any harm in changing both since I've already got a ww laying there??

no harm. stock wheel flows more air however.
i have had zero surge since i changed to the wicked wheel.
some people still get surge, most dont.
you mine as well buy a garret gtp38r for 1300 then spend 400 on just a ported housing.

The stock wheel flows more air than the wicked wheel. I'd port the compressor housing; that will make for even better flow. Then stick on a 1.0 exhaust housing for more top-end power.

dont waste your money on intake side if you want one i will sell you one. the exhaust side is the problem buy the 1.0 exhaust housing and adapter and be happy. not saying the intake housing doesn't help but its not the fix.
