brand new 2010 is a hesitation off the line normal?

So, since I bought my new 2010 last week I have noticed that right off the line it won't build boost and takes off real slow until 5-10 mph when the boost kicks in. I've even tried brake standing it to build boost and it won't. At first I thought this must me programmed in to keep people from doing burnouts with a 30ft 5th wheel attached, but I can't find anyone else mentioning it. I've driven a dmax LBZ that was bone stock and it would roast all 4 in 4hi and I can't even chirp 2.
Is this normal, is it just a programmed in safety feature from ford? Will a spartan get rid of this?
I might sound like an azz, but its actually a problem when driving around in traffic, like if I'm making a left had turn, I see an opening, I hit the gas to take the opening and the truck takes its sweet old time until I'm halfway through the turn, then the boost finally kicks in.
thanks

'09s are the same. Needs gentle pedal pressure off the line. Don't push over half way down. I have no idea why.

ok, so it is something programmed in by ford. Do you know if a tuner will change that?

Probably not, but I'm not sure. I'm just living with it.

The programming is to keep soot down, as that's when a majority of smoke occurs: off-idle, low boost, high load environments.

A straight pipe and a tuner will have your truck liquify the tires (along with emitting puffs of black smoke).

I can tell you from experience

I had the same issue. I drove 3 trucks all were the same but still like them and bought a 08. Then after 7K i decided to buy Spartan and the response is better for sure but not as good as the new 2011 trucks. Anyway, you will love Spartan and maybe other tuners but not sure as they will wake up your truck once the DPF is gone. I only run the 75hp tune and love it. Also, when you goto a Banks or other cold air intake you will also see better response. I have over 25K now with Spartan and nothing but happiness. Good luck.

I'm pretty sure any tuner will give you more of a jump off of the line. It's all about burning more fuel and fuel consumption.
