getting off the line

This is my first PSD I have had other diesels in the past most recently chev 6.5TD and it had a wastegate turbo that had pressure alway built up so it would get of the line just as fast as my 73 wagoneer that has a built 360. My PSD has turbo lag that I am not used to but once the tubo kicks in my 6.5 can't touch it. I know how to power brake but have been a little reluctent about it just because it is a $50k rig. It also has disc brakes in thee rear which I have never had. So to get off the line do you power brake until the turbo spools up?

here's my recipe for success.

get to the line
engage 4-Hi
wiggle the steering wheel a little to make sure the hubs lock
mash the brake then the accelerator pedal
when the boost needle stops rising slid your foot off the brake
at around 25-30 i flip it back to 2-hi and follow thru....

i've fun low 16's in 87 degree Sout Carolina weather in my SCLW truck

When you switch back to 2H, do you need to let off for the 4WD to disengage?
