Infuriating pause

Anybody else experiencing the combination turbo lag 2nd - 3rd gear pause?

It happens as I pull to a amber light for instance and the truck is gearing down and I accelerate. It simply has niether rpm or engagment

I had a 7.3 so lag is nothing new but I have never had it where trans is so for want of another word unsure of where it should be

Anyone else?

your jumping to conclusions too fast man. With that few of miles, you cant determine anything really. It will take at least 1500 miles for the computer to recognize your driving style, and untill then little things like this are just being caused by the difference beween what the computer thinks it should do versus your driving style. See if some more driving doesnt make the truck react better to your driving style. Its called "learned stratagy"....

Thanks
This is fairly pronounced. I owned the 7.3 from new and it simply freed up but this feels a bit different.
Time will tell

I think you will want to break it in easy so it will not be damaged during the break-in period. After a couple of thousand miles I am thinking about disconnecting the batteries so the memory will be cleared. Then let it learn the way I'm going to drive it after break-in.

All my touring photos. (except the two massive trips in 2011-soon to be posted eventually)

Replaced "The Beast" 6.4L with 75,000 miles. Hated to see it go.
