Turbo surge

I have been having turbo surge when pulling a heavy load, usually happens around 12-16 lbs of boost. I have read a little on here about the turbo housings, and the wicked wheels. Is there any preformance gains from adding these? Also do you do the intake or the exhaust side housing? thanks

It's not a performance mod but it will help with the surge and help build boost faster. You don't get any extra HP but you feel more of it sooner.

just do either the housing or the wheel.. no need to do both.... i recommend the housing....

dont do the exhaust housing either... if your going to spend money doing the wheel and both housings you might as well just save up a lil more and get a full replacement turbo

Where is the best place to get a housing, and how difficult is the install? Is the reason for getting rid of surge to prevent turbo failure?

the wicked wheel took care of all the surge i had very well.. it also adds a very nice spool-up whistle i would have gone housing if i had the extra cash though.. but as far as price goes the wheel will do the trick... Getting the housing off is fairly easy as long as you dont mind straining your back a little... just make sure you have a swivel head for the two lower bolts on the housing. heres a link to a video of the pros doing it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kZAAjrHnHN0

I used one on mine.I use air-tools all the time,so I kinda know when enough is enough..Its very hard to explain.If you are familiar with your air-tools you will be ok.IMO.
