Purely bolt on product.
It may or may not help the turbo surge. It adds ZERO hp and ZERO tq

It seems to cure surge about 90% of the time...

For the cost, I'll be getting one when I get a chip. I know mine has surged stock.

Ya, ours does. Like crazy.
I'm hesitant to get one because it surges so bad that I am unsure anything besides a new turbo will help. lol

Just had a buddy of mine do it in his truck and has no surge problems now. Im sure if you hook up a heavy load it will still surge some. Just do the wheel and the 1.0 AR housing and that is said to cure 100% and will run you under $500.
