Repair shop in Knoxville

First off I'm currently deployed so it makes things twice as difficult. I'm not sure what's going on with my rig but it sounds like turbo surge to me but I'm not sure. My wife tries to explain what it's doing but she's got me worried so I want to get it looked at. I don't want to risk ruining the turbo or the engine. I have a wicked wheel waiting to be installed when I get home. Any suggestions on a shop to take it to? Thanks for your help.

Here's a bump for you, we've got a few members in that area, hopefully one of 'em can get you squared away.

There are a couple of diesel shops in town, but ACME diesel off of Rutledge Pike seems to be the most reasonable, and honest. Just up the road from the International dealer where I'm sure they could speak intelligently to what issues you may be having.

There is also City Diesel, but they don't seem to much like working on blue ovals. If I can get his ear, the master diesel tech at Ted Russell Parkside is a good dude. Not real eager to talk to many folks, but if you can get him past that, he's a strait shooter and will do you right.

I found a few youtube posts while scanning posts on turbo surge. I had my wife listen to them and she says that's exactly what it's doing. I'm going to try to talk her through a few things today and see what RPMs it's happening at. She hasn't tried put the tuner in stock position so that's first on the list. Hopefully I'll know a little more today. Thanks for chiming in guys.

Wouldn't surprise me at all if the tune was causing surge. Back in the day when I first for custom tunes the turbo hated every shift.
