6.0 surges while cruising

While I'm cruising at lower rpm my 2005 6.0 surges. What could this mean??

Turbo vanes may be dirty and not moving like they should, VGT solenoid could be acting up, or a bad tank of fuel. Check for codes, maybe that will help you out. Make sure you get them checked at Ford, or have a quality scan tool like AE to check codes though

Yeah I was thinking the vanes in the turbo cause it will drop boost and it takes a few minutes for them to open when the truck is cold. How hard is it to clean them?

Cleaning them is the easy part, getting that bastard out is the hard part. Not that bad of a job though, about half a day for a first timer

I've pulled alot of them doing HPOP's and egr's at the shop I used to work at. Just never pulled a turbo apart. What should I use to clean it with? And is there any small parts inside I need to worry about losing?
