Please spare me from the roasting I know its debated if it will hurt the turbo or not.

I have a 2013 Ford Focus ST and I want to make the turbo flutter I already deleted the stock diverter valve and put a block off plate on. Hoping to create flutter that did nothing besides make the turbo a tiny louder if anything. What’s the best thing I can do to make it flutter or surge.

A massive turbo to big for the motor, changing out the size & length of your piping in t/b & intake, delete the bov.....Turbo's are our friend's so why hurt them???

I'll add a vote to NOT doing it - OK for $500 Beater you want to have fun with until it dies and gets Junked.

turbo flutter is doable if you got the right diverter valve but its really not a good thing to do its like shoving a stick in your turbo to slow it down from 130,000 rpms ,but look up GFB on you tube , he has a small vid on doing it but does not recommend it
Q: why would you delete your dv ???? [screwy]

The flutter is essentially your turbo stalling. This happens because when the throttle body closes the air has nowhere to go. A diverter/bov discharges that air before it can go back into the turbo damaging the bearings, shaft, ect. When the air goes back into the turbo it's trying to spin it in the wrong direction.
