+1 to Corky Bell.... I have read a couple of his books, and from an Engineering side of things, I tend to believe him on MOST subjects (I specifically remember one instance where exhaust size calculations came into play) so if Corky says that minor compressor surge isn't a big deal, then I wouldn't jump to doubt him; if you think about it, surge is only backflow - compressed air - which is a relatively light, turbulent fluid in this instance - and at lower pressures (which even 16-25 psi are) really can't be all that damaging
