My 13 does this, under light throttle conditions when climbing a slight incline at 55-65, if I feed it a tiny bit more pedal, its gone, also boost gauge all over the place when its doing it. Turbo surge? There is a tsb for 2012 trucks, but seeing as my 13 still does it I doubt it fixes anything and should already be done to yours also, its software changes tsb 13-4-3. I haven't taken mine it yet because I don't want the standard line of bs "normal characteristic" Ford gave me that line about all of the issues I had with my 11 f150, needless to say, my lawyer packed that one up there a%$.... It drives me nuts, but I'll let it grenade first, its harder to say a million small fragments of metal is normal...
