just got back from a 800 mile trip towinn my 7500 pound trailer, i have a superchips 1805 programer, i tried the economy mode goinn down, it worked great lotts more power over stock, but on the hills i was gettinn turbo surge around 2300 rpms. on the way back i tried the tow mode, no surge but less power, on the tow mode the most boost i saw was around 18, on economy mode i saw up to 25 very easy. my tranny temps never went over 160 with either settinn, what do i have to do to tow in the economy settinn? to get rid of the turbo surge.

ATS ported turbo housing, and no more surge. Tranny mods needed are Transgo Tugger kit and extra inline cooler.
Whether you hear it or not, surge will fry your turbo unless you get an ATS housing or try a Wicked Wheel, which may or may not fix the surge problem. The ATS housing will cure your surge issue.
ATS housing costs about $450. www.itpdiesel.com
