Turbo surge

Can someone explain turbo surge to me? I just installed a ts chip and when I get in it at 2200 rpm or so it acts like the clutch is slipping, but I am not seeing the rpm jump up. The truck only has 67,000 miles on it, the chip is set on the 100hp setting. When set to stock it doesn, t do it anymore.

all you need to know is its bad. and will fubar your turbo

if you have a manual boost gauge the needle will jump around.

it doesnt do it stock because you dont see 22 psi of boost stock.

get a billet wheel and it will fix your surge problem.

Gauges going in this weekend, just took it out for a couple of test drives. Chip is coming back out, until I can get it reburned. Thanks for the replies, hadn,t dealt with surge issues before.

you dont need to have it re-burned because of surge.
the turbo is just not liking the fact your forcing more air than the wheel wants to move.

you need an aftermarket compressor wheel to fix the surge.
leave your chip in, it will run fine and shouldnt surge unless you floor it everywhere you go.

look at bd diesel, dieselsite or riffraffs billet compressor wheels.

Tanker8 just installed the WW2 and drove to Washington from cali loved the wheel and no surge what so ever. Try it you'll like it.

I had horrible surge with my stock wheel with anything over a 40 hp setting and it only got worse when towing. Now I'm running Dieselsite's WW2 and a Barder 360 kit and I have yet to make it surge again....even tried it in the 120 setting towing 10k and no surge. Dieselsite and Riffraff both make great wheels and obviously both of them cure the surge problem with a slight gain in power at the same time. If I had to do it over I probably would have went with a 38R or a SD66 just b/c of future upgrades but for a truck with stock injectors the new billet wheels work just fine.

I am not getting my chip reburned for the surge issue, don,t like the tunes that are on it. Too much smoke. Thinking about going to a brute 66 turbo. I dont want to put any money in the stock turbo, going to get bigger injectors in the future. Need more pulling power. Thanks for all the input.

A stock turbo with a WW2 should handle bigger injectors, unless you plan on running huge ones. Should have no problem with slightly larger than stock.
