Question Crappy throttle response at low speeds

At low speeds with a light touch on the accelerator, it has a lot of dead-space - it's nothing nothing nothing then all of a sudden the throttle kicks in.

It's a FPITA when trying to hook up trailers or when manoeuvring around in slow speeds, especially in tight spaces.

Is there a TSB for this? I have a 2013 F350 CREW SRW.

Same problem. From what I have read, the 6.7L's have a turbo lag that causes the delay in throttle response. I just came from an f150 I had programmed and really miss the sensitive throttle and immediate response. Don't miss ANYTHING ELSE though!!
