Hey guys I have a question regarding some turbo surge that I experienced a couple days ago. I was headed up a steep hill in overdrive at about 65 so r.p.m was about 1800, I had just tuned it with a superchips tuner and put it on economy maybe less than 100 miles before. The turbo started to surge up the hill I looked in my mirror and saw no smoke, but it was dark outside so I may not have seen it. All fluids look ok and I just got it back from the shop where the e.g.r valve was just replaced, the tech. said he did a pressure check on the heads and e.g.r cooler and everything looked up to spec. I have'nt had the problem since and I've watched it very close, can anyone shed some light on what would cause that to hapen

Exactly how do you go about cleaning your turbo. In fact one of the dealerships mentioned that it could be the vanes sticking telling the computer to back of on the boost, especially since I don't haul anything and may not be running it as hard as I should.

Yes it is still under warrenty, but if it is not that big af a deal I think I would rather just drive the wheels of of it. What is the worst that could happen if it is dirty? Also I was talking with a race shop about putting an aftermarket turbo on and they want me to spend like $8000 on just the turbo setup, not including the trans mods I would have to do to keep the transmission from blowing up. That seems high to me, what do you think.

What do you think it should cost? If the turbo is dirty and I don't clean it what do you think will happen, just hurt the trubo right?

If the turbo is dirty, what is the worst that could happen? Also the reason I mentioned the new turbo setup is because I had asked the shop what the best way to get somewhere around 400-450 h.p to the ground would be and I want the power to be reliable. This is a daily driver and will continue to be a daily driver so reliability is a must. What do you think?

Do you think that the stock transmission will handle that power, if not i was thinking about a suncoast torque converter. Again relibility is my main concern
