Turbo Surge?

Just noticed it this past weekend making a 3 hour haul to WV up hwy 77. Turbo sounded like it was fluttering at WOT. Wanted to get some input on exactly what it was. I was pulling aroung 6K lbs. and running a TS chip in 75 mode. Also, noticed the blow off isnt a crisp in this mode without any weight behind me as in stock position. Any input is greatly appreciated. Just wanting to make sure its not something to be worried over. Thanks

Its not doing your turbo any favors. When you start to hear that sound, back off just a little bit until it stops.

Yup, i figured. I let out, was just concerned about it. Is there anything i can do to help fix the problem? I dont tow that much weight with the truck often, but when i need to i want to be able to without any issues. Thanks

I strongly, strongly recommend the ATS Ported Turbo Housing. Problem solved....

Im not sure, but i dont think i can do either. I have an early, and IIRC i have the wicked wheel stock, and don't think the ATS housing will work with my turbo, unless of course i do the entire turbo upgrade to late 99. Is there anything else i can do? Is the tune im running the culprit? Reason I ask, when I swiched back to stock, the surge stopped or at least i couldnt hear it anymore. The crispness came back to the blowoff as well. If that is the case, i will just run stock while towing.

It was most definitely the tune you were running. Do you have any other tunes besides the 75 and stock?

Yup, ive got 50, 100, and 140 as well. What would you suggest towing in? Stock or 50? I have it set on 75 for daily driving, but i guess thats not the best tune to tow. Could it be the tune itself? Maybe the ts needs to be reburnt to be a little more specific to my setup. IDK. Could it be something else? Maybe something thats just more noticable while running the tunes.

Ported shroud housing is a no-go on the early bird turbo. Try having TW or PHP re-burn that chip for you with a tow tune and see if it helps.

Get TW or PHP to burn your chip to include one or two tow tunes. I never had my stock turbo surge while towing and that was with big oil and playing with 7 different tunes while towing my 10k lb travel trailer.

I hope you are running gauges if you are running a chip while towing. I really hope.

you'll get surge in a 2000 and later 7.3 if you open up the air box - aftermarket air filter. that and good tunes and she'll surge. I don't know about the earlier 7.3's.
