Turbo lag?

OK when I'm going down the road the truck goes into overdrive and just seems to die. And when I give it more fuel to shift Down and go I can feel the Turbo like it should be. The only thing for the truck to feel healthy is to crank my chip up.
The truck runs great otherwise. I know i have leaking up pipes and no boost leaks. Is this normal what I'm feeling?

Depends on what speeds but it sounds completely normal to me.

Thank you. Like between 45 and 55 the truck seems dead while in overdrive. After that you can literally feel the boost build. I don't have my gauges in yet( waiting on my pod) but maybe those will help to see if i have a lil problem.

At that speed your truck sounds completely normal to me.

With the up-pipes leaking it will take a bit more throttle to spool the turbo. In overdrive your wastegate is dumping most of your boost anyway. When you fix your up pipes look into bellowed up-pipes. Wish I would have known about them before I replaced my up-pipe gaskets.

I actually had the same problem while hauling a trailer once. Figured out that I had to wait for the "wait to start" light went off before I cranked.
