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.
