turbo questions

hey guys i got a couple questions concerning turbo flutter. i pretty much know how to get rid of it im just not sure on which method is the best. i was thinking about a ported shroud compressor housing or a WW or possibly both since the WW is supposed to make spool up quicker. what do you guys think is the best way to go?

Until you put 238's with it.

The ported housing is the best. A WW is just a noise maker. Together, they will sing for you. Louder than a 38r in my opinion.

will the ported housing spool up faster than stock? and is a x wheel the same as a WW?

Re: turbo questions

I can't remember if it did or not.

Also, you will lose a pound or more of boost with the WW(X wheel).
