2008 F450 Turbo Surge

Just got my 2008 F450 with 42k miles, twice so far the boost gage has maxed out (both times at or near idle) and the truck surges ahead. Luckily my foot was on the brake both times but I had to brake hard to get the truck stopped. It stopped after maybe 10 seconds or so and went back to normal operation, any information is greatly appreciated ... kinda nervous in traffic now and stay way back.
