The sound of surge!

Can someone please tell me about surge? I think I understand that it's like a boat propeller cavitating, but what does it sound like? What i hear is a ch ch ch ch when i'm under a load. I have been told that is the sound of surge. I have the large exhaust port coming off the turbo, done away with the warm up gate, 4" exhaust with straight thru muffler, Banks WW, tymar intake, superchip programmer. Is there anything in that combination that I can eliminate and GAURRATEE that it will fix the problem? Please help?

It will sound like a fluttering or fart, like a whoosh

A BOV is a blow off valve-releases pressure when the throttle is closed so that it doesn't flow back to the turbo and cause it to try and force the turbo to spin in the opposite direction doing damage to the turbo while under such a high speed in one direction. Hope that helps. TIAL is a huge company that desings many turbo accessories for turbo vehicles. Many of us in the drag racing community with gas vehicles use TIAL products on our turbo cars/trucks.

you don't need to worry about a blow off valve. diesels (stock diesels) don't have them, and you don't really need them unless you are running some wild stuff...
