I need help guys. I love the wealth of info on here and I have done some research but I could really use your help. I do not know what my truck is really doing. Thank you if you take the time to read it.
when I really need the power like passing somebody or pulling a grade with or with out trailer. When the power comes on it bucks. I can pull 45lbs of boost with zero surging when the adr. is off it only surges when I am asking for more fuel. If I bump the mins up on the pulse it just delays the effect put them way down and the problem is there even quicker. With the mins way down I don't have to really be into the throttle just giving it some go to accelerate is all it takes.
My wastegate is completely closed off I have the rod as short as can be. And this problem was nonexistent four the first 4months of having these twins. Use to be smooth as glass if I wasn't running the beta tunes. I didn't even have the pulse then and I was more than happy. Although I hadn't towed with the twins yet. The first time I realized I had surging and a fluttering boost guage was on the first towing trip. Wich over the course of 400 miles I never took it over 40lbs. And no spikes either.
P0234 Turbo Boost Limit Exceeded
Had same 2 codes and truck surged bad. Turned out to be my alternator. Bad diode was leaking AC current into the system causing a surge. Was told to check out my alternator by Mark at TST and Chip at Blue Chip. Disconnect main lead off back of alt and run truck, if no surge its the alt. Make sure you tape up wire so it doesn't short on anything.
