Boost surge

Hey guys I have a 03 6.0 I'm currently in the middle of studding it and deleting it, it also has a 4 in turbo back straight pipe air raid intake and bully dog power hound chip. But enough about that before I tore it down the boost would drop up and down rapidly I was wondering if my bad egr cooler would cause this or fuel filter. Any help is appreciated. Devin

Under what circumstances did this happen? Crusing, during shifting, accelerating, etc.?

Check for boost leaks. Check out your turbo you could have sticking vanes.

You probably have sticky vanes in your turbo, the same has been happening to me for a while. I believe the problem is sometimes it will overboost and the VGT actuator will try to move the vanes to create less boost. And since the vanes can't get to there correct position it will buck and surge, losing boost and slowing the truck. If you had a leaky egr cooler, the moisture could help cause the problem of sticking vanes, but I'd say clean you turbo....there's a few g
