It wouldn't hurt to get the latest calibration, but I think your problem has to do with your turbo being sooted-up. You may have to pull it off, and clean it.
BTW, Panhead Jay, the 6.0l doesn't have a waste gate, it has a variable geometry turbo. It has a bunch of moving parts that direct the exhaust gasses to run the turbine more effectively. They get rusty and sooted-up and don't work really well.
