2013 horrible turbo lag

Have a '13 f250. 1200 miles. Finally got on it from a stop light and the lag is horrible. I test drove a 12 dually last year and it had a lot more get up and go than mine. This was the first time I've floored my truck and I was very disappointed. Does this sound normal? I was worried about spinning out with the dually. I don't have that concern with this truck. I don't want to delete it. Need the warranty, just wondering if this doesn't sound right. Pulls trailers fine, just off the line is lacking

My 2012 does not exhibit what you're saying. I feather it so as to not spin and kick in the traction control. Maybe that's what's going on with yours? Maybe you're feeling the truck trying to keep you from spinning???
If I put my foot in it....it wants to roast the rear tires.

I have 3.55 gears. I'll try turning traction control off but I don't think that's it. I traded in my 2012 deleted cummins and the ford is slower than dodge stock for stock. Everyone I talk to is always raving about how fast these are

I think I'll call the shots here champ. I was using the comparison to the dodge to describe my trucks condition. If you've ridden in a cummins you'd realize how slow they are. I'm not a hot dog driver but want feedback on whether my truck has issues and needs to be checked out.

Maybe take it back to the dealer and have them re-flash it.

My money is on the traction control if there's no codes poping up.
