Default EB Turbo Problem?

Well that got my attention! Pulling out onto a major highway I attempted to merge with traffice travelling at 120 kmph. Hit the gas and nothing, engine bogged and the service engine light came on. I had to pull to the shoulder to avoid being run over by a transport! I shut the truck off, restarted it and the service engine light went off. I assume this is the turbo problem everyone talks about.
by the way, my truck is a 2013 FX4 EB with less than 1600 km (1000 miles).
Not a real confidence booster!

This eco boost is turning out to be an ecoBUST. Sorry to see another victim of a system not thought out well. Ford's R&D is usually better.

Hope you find some satisfaction in any event, at least it's under warranty.

I have a 2011 eb and had this problem once did some research and talked to many dealerships, and came to the conclusion that its a faulty coil pack i have added the bully dog triple threat tuner and havent had the problem sense. But whats happening is your getting a miss fire due to the coil pack. Hope this helps

Ecoboost was developed Honeywell, not Ford...
