turbo surge correction

Will this fix the turbo surge on my early 99?
Ported Shroud Compressor Housing
Says it is for 99.5 thru 03.
If it wont, what will?
Belive I already have the Wicked Wheel.
Thanks

That won't fit your turbo. Are you still running stock gears? Your only choices, as far as I know, are to re-gear the truck to reduce the load on the motor, or swap to a late model turbo setup (you need everything turbo related) and go with a ported shroud housing and/or wicked wheel. You could also try a 1.0 A/R exhaust housing on your stock turbo and see if that helps.

Yes, still have the stock 3.73's. Not good that there is really no fix for this. It is definatley an issue since the intake, exhaust and tuner. What is the exhaust part your talking about? Why does this seem to not be an issue with most early 99's?

i dont see why you have any turbo surge because it is an early 99. you are correct the early 99's did come with the WW.

I have an early 99 as well and I noticed some bad surge this weekend with a 140 tune between 1500 and 2000. Sounds like the turbo is sneezing.

My early 99 surges a good amount too, but not nearly as bad as the 99.5's I've been in.

It's a different exhaust housing for the turbo that is slightly larger than the stock one. link I don't know if it will help with the surge or not, but it's about the only thing out there available without converting to a late model turbo setup.

That may be worth a try. I have been talking with Dennis at ITP and he is at the conclusion theres nothing to be done with it w/o upgrading everything. He also said he finds it unusual to have this issue with an early 99. It is really prevelant when towing as I found out last weekend. When it starts, I would shut the od off, kicking up the rpm's and it would instantly stop so its defenatley rpm related. I will just have to learn to deal with it I guess. Upgrading the exhaust housing will not hurt anything so it would be interesting to see if it will help or not. How do I convince the warden I need MORE money for this now???

Tell her a new exhaust housing is about 1/10 the cost of a late model turbo upgrade (with a 38R, bellowed up pipes, etc)

It will start "Honey.....Superduty4x4 said.................."
She is good about me playing with my toys. Weather is cooling now so the 72 Gran Torino will see more time on the road. I will keep you posted.
