Turbo Surging

alright. I know that a lot of stock turbos have this problem. I just want to know what is the best way to fix it. I know you can get a new wheel for inside the turbo that will help a little bit. And a new turbo would fix it, but i dont want to spend that much. I have thought about shortening the rod on the waste gate or just completly unpluging the waste gate, but not sure. I would like to just unplug the waste gate, but then i know i have to keep an eye on it, which is fine. So I have the banks 6 gun, does anyone know how accurate the boost readings are off the banks? Or will have to set up another gauge? And how much boost can a stock turbo handle?

Banks should be reading just as accurate as any other.

WW will reduce it.

An ATS housing will cure it.

This is short of going with a new turbo.

Wasnt sure if the banks would read right, since it just plugs in to the computer, or is that how all other boost gauges are???

And do you have any prices? WW = Wicked Wheel?????

that would be great. i did some hauling today, and it was going crazy. ever since my DIY intake it has gotten way worse. About 45- 55 mph is when it is worse. but with OD off at 65 she screams. But that is not very often that i am pulling 65 mph with all the hills andf wind around here.
