Turbo Noise 2001 Powerstroke

Hi Guys I'm New To The Forum I Bought A 2001 F350 4x4 Powerstroke With Auto Approx. 3 Weeks Ago I Have Put A Dp 6 Program Tuner Afe Stg 2 Intake And Magnoflow Full Exhaust . I Have Noticed A Odd Noise Out Of The Turbo At Approx 10 To 15 Psi Boost The Most Sound Is When Trans Up Thru Gears Shifts . It's Kind Of A Low Pitch Honking Type Sound . Hard To Explain Doesn't Seem To Doit When The Boost Is Above 15 Psi . Could My Turbo Be Going Out Or Is This A Normal Sound With The Afe Intake .

Thanks For Any Input

Called surge, happens around 10-15#'s boost. Stock they do it, but you can't hear it in the stock intake... You can add a Wicked wheel, or a ATS housing to stop it. Try not to drive it in that range, it will kill a turbo over time.

Or you could do what CSI did and get a Turbonetics replacement unit. He had a Garrett BB that surged, so he needed something that didnt.

GTP-38r BB TURBO(Out for now...back at Garret) Running a Turbonetic no surge turbo!!! Thanks Brian BWD,

That is a very good option too. YA need to think about how far you want to take the truck... I started with a WW... then a WW/ATS housing, then I still stepped up to a bigger turbo... How far do you want to go and how much do you want to spend...

i use the truck as my back up truck for work hauling my enclosed trailer and sometimes a mini excavator at approx. 13000 total weight . most of the time just running around and every once in a while smoking some ricer . but i have know plans on drag racing or taking it to sled pulls . so what would be the best option ats or a turbo upgrade for my aplication . what benifits would an upgraded turbo have if any for my type of usage .
thanks for the great feedback so far

With a turbo, you can grow into it. There is only so much you can do to the stocker, and no mater what it will always be rated for 25# max... A replacement turbo will push 40# and up with no issues...

Hello wetside orygonian...I was in your position a little over a year ago and it didn't take long for the exhaust side of my turbo to let go. I did a bunch of research on the turbo options like you are doing and settled on the "van turbo" that is in my sig. Why? Money. I, like you, am not in search of max HP but wanted a reliable working PSD with no turbo surge. I won't get deeply into pro's and con's but I can positively tell you that I have no surge, under any conditions, and I payed hundreds less than some of the more common replacement turbo options. Like I said, for me it just came down to money.

I'm also a first time owner of a PSD. After I installed my AFE II I also noticed a sound when I was really accelerating, and when the trucks automatic shifted, I would hear that whoosh sound with a strange "squak?"
I was told it was normal, just the turbo kicking back the built up pressure it couldn't use when the trucks rpm's dropped due to shifting.
So my question is, are we talking about the same symptoms?
Is it "surge" or is it normal.

It is surge. It is normal for a stock turbo.

It is also detrimental to the health of the turbo.
