ATS HOUSING OR WW

If you had the money to spend on the housing. Would it be better to install it for turbo surge Ive been told that the ww moves less air. but will take care of surge. And the housing would be easier to install . I want to do the housing, just want to make sure that it will take care of the surge thanks andy

I bought the Wicked Wheel just cause of the money issue. I really dont think it will move that much less air to be noticable

the WW is better for the money.

If you dont care about money then spend the money and just get a 38r and be done with it.

Pony the cash and do the ported housing, or do as stated and go for a complete turbo. Sometimes the WW isnt the answer, but the other two options will DEFINENTLY eliminate the surge.
Bottom line is this. A WW is a step back to perhaps cure or at least help alleviate surge. a housing or turbo is a leap forward to eliminate surge once and for all. Just MHO.

"Blizzard" The big white bio-burning 03 7.3. 6637, straight piped stock exhaust, and a "New" secret blend of Haul asBLEEPsing mods and upgrades. Suffice to say, its not the fastest, but it quite possibly is one of the quickest.

Depends on what your goals are. If you aren't going to build the motor and keep the stock turbo, def get the ATS housing. The WW does not cure surge. Some say it helps them, bu those are the folks that didn't have it bad to begin with. The housing is the ONLY 100% cure for surge.
