funky boost delay after startup

Hey guys,
My trucks got a funky boost issue after I start it. It doesn't matter if its warm or cold it still does it, but when its warm it doesn't do it for as long. I took a video of it. During the video, my foot was on the floor and I still had the boost delay. What y'all think? Btw the check engine light is on because the glow plug for cylinder #2 isn't working. I gotta fix it...

Looks to me like either your VGT vanes are getting stuck or your VGT solenoid is malfunctioning. Either way, let your truck warm up a before your go WOT do you have a way to monitor your VGT %?

Not yet unfortunately. The weird thing is if I drive 4 an hour and run into the store it still has the delay.

My suggestion on warming the truck up isn't for your problem... It's to ensure you have the best lubrication possible while making the engine produce WOT power. 6.0 powerstroke are extremely picky about there oil in every aspect. The VGT vanes will still be sticky even with the motor warm or cold. I'd do a search for sticky VGT vanes or VGT solenoid problems. I'm leaning towards a VGT solenoid though....

Thanks, I'd just swap VGT solenoids first.

My truck is needing a turbo pretty soon. If their in good condition or new see if he might sell one. It would be nice if I didn't have to pay the outrageous price for one from the dealer or parts house.

Don't another stock one... I'd send yours to Adrian and he will upgrade it for less than $900

6.0 - Stage 1

Really it just needs the unison ring and actuator but with the amount of pitting that I seen when I pulled it to clean it I decided to just hold out and buy a new one. I don't really need aftermarket power. I don't race the truck or tug with it, just an occasional toy hauler and to get to work and school. And of course, chick magnet
