turbo lag

So i just bought a 2004 f350 ccsb with 143k on the clock. I think there is something wrong with the turbo. I put the tranny in 1st gear and gave it almost full throddle its doesnt build real power until about 2100 rpm's then about 27-2800 rpm's i can really tell its spooling up and throws you back in the seat. I've watched my exhaust pipe in the mirror and im not getting any black smoke. Since its an 04 i dont have a boost gauge (yet). Is this the normal turbo lag?

On an unrelated note a friends of mine is going to give me a superchips programmer. Should take it or just get a SCT?

turbo lag

I just bought a 2004 f350 ccsb fx4 with 142k on the clock. I think my turbo lag is a little excessive. It doesnt build good power until 2100 rpms and at 27-2800 rpms it will really throw you back in the seat. Ive never seen any black smoke coming out of the exhaust. After some reading about others with stuck veins I'm unsure what the problem is.

You need a monitor, mine was doing it before I cleaned the turbo. But i'll be damned if it didn't do it to me a couple of times yesterday when I took it for a spin it's aggrivating me now.

Sent from my phone that somebody didn't help me get.

What does your boost guage on the dash say?

Just get the SCT. You need a monitor first above anything else though.

Duplicate posts are bad enough, but you had to create 3 of them? I merged the 2 that had other posts and deleted the 3rd. Please pay attention to what you are doing.


To answer your question your VGT vanes may be sticking or you might have a leak in one of the up pipes. Or the Exhaust Back Pressure tube or sensor may be bad.

I will pull the turbo on Tuesday and give it a thorough cleaning. See if that helps.
Monitoring system is in the plans.

Question, how do you tell if you need to clean the turbo? What do you monitor? What should the readings be? I have a CTS.
