Does it kind of sound like a woosh/screech/cough noise that comes after you give it a good revv?

No it's not the turbo out the exhaust it only happens when the transmission lets the engine lug going up a slight grade it's a whooshing sound from the air box I'm not sure exactly where it comes from I've unplugged the vaccume line from the waste gate and it's not the culprit. I've been deleted 22,000 miles as it's done it since day one! But I sure do love the sound of the turbo!

Yes, I love the turbo sound also. I can't seem to figure out what "waffle" sound you're talking about. I thought you were talking about the wastegate screech/cough.

I guess the best way to describe it it's almost like a thumping coming from the air box area and I'm sure it due to pressure created between the sequential wheels of the turbo more than likely it's cause by thinner air due to elevation differences. I'm at 5400' above sea level there has been some threads on the issue but I haven't found any fixes. Maybe just aftermarket turbo and let her eat!

Oh I see. I'm at sea level, so probably haven't experienced it. There's nothing wrong with an aftermarket turbo though! Haha.

I get same thing every once in awhile. Only happens when truck is lugging in high gear under load. Goes away as soon as truck downshifts. Sounds as if turbo is starving for air.

Does same thing when power braking with throttle and brake then letting off throttle.

Forgot to mention I am at 4500 ft elevation

I sure wish ford would lower the shift points a tad sooner and then the engine wouldn't lug and i wouldn't be whining lol but i reckon i can live with it cause i do love my truck!
