    Owner of a 4x4 2016 Eco Boost Crew Cab Laramie. Has about 30K miles on it. Have had noticeable Turbo lag recently. Just wondering if other owners have experienced this? Haven't had a chance to take to the dealer. Hoping maybe just needs a software update. Thoughts ?

    I presume that you have no engine codes? When and how are you noticing the lag. Does your turbo kick in at all? Or just later than you normally noticed

    There is a clear hesitation at acceleration

    Rolling start or from a dead stop?

    Pedal Commander is your friend. I hate driving my Eco without it.

    Got turbo lag also, from a dead stop I get a 1-2 sec. spool up and then she go's. That's at full throttle. No complaints around town or passing.

    Five minute install (literally) and then zero turbo lag. You'll never want to drive an Eco again without it

    If I mat the throttle pedal from a full stop yes, I have a bit of a lag it's not 1 or 2 seconds even though it may feel that way at the time.
    Almost every diesel engine that I have ran had that issue whether it was a hand throttle or a foot feed an instantaneous full throttle call from an idle had a bit of a lag, especially a turbo'ed engine.
    When I aggressively feed the throttle without just matting it the lag if exsistant is very minimal. And the only problem is keeping the tires lighting up.
