Throttle Unresponsive

when i hit the throttle in my truck it takes a good inch or two before the truck responds, where as my fathers truck tap it and it barks forward he has the same tuner but has in intake i have no intake but i doubt it would be that much different, i read somewhere about a tube that gets filled with soot and cleaning it can help throttle response

Could be your throttle position sensor on the pedal. Its a fly by wire system.

Can't adjust it as far as I know. It either works or it doesn't.

I would drive your truck for a few miles and then check codes again. As far as I know the tps doesn't always throw a code. When I get home from work I have a link for the tps at a really good price.

Oh okay just turbo lag probobly. Yeah an intake might help some, but a chip or tuner will help more

Hmm strange. With my superchips the throttle is actually touchy I had to get used to it at first. You know you can scan your truck with the superchips right?
