Throttle delay

Got on the pedal for the first time. What is with the delay in the Getty up and go? It took a couple seconds before it kicked in. Does it every time.

That's something I've always noticed about Ford automatics. Any Dodge automatics seemed to be more directly connected to the go pedal, jerk your head back earlier.

I'd like to get a tranny tune that made the truck move and feel like I was using a standard transmission with little hesitation or softness in engaging.

I think it is severe turbo lag on mine. Maybe it takes awhile for the variable vane turbo to adjust before the thing spools up?

I don't notice too much of a delay on with mine but we have a f550 c&c at work and the turbo lag on that is really bad.

Mine does it as well, almost like the truck is thinking about what it is you want it to do. I also notice on the highways when you're on the fuel hard then you get off the fuel and then back on the fuel... kind of delays and processes your request. Not to sound like I don't like my Ford but my Dmax/Allison gave me what I wanted, when I wanted it.

Maybe Ford will come out with a program fix. Not really happy about it either.

Regarding to the F550's: 6 out of 9 have serious delays.

It takes 6 seconds until the truck would start moving. At this point he turbo starts spooling.

Im dealing with Ford and their first response: "less horse power and you will get use to it"
And the advise to use a lot of fuel additive...

This is a joke... Does any body have similar issues/experience so far?
