    When this happens should there be an engine parameter that's out of wack that you can see with a data logger? I assume it doesn't set a code, so I might have answered my own question.

    That’s a bad diverter/bov......used to be in the VW tuning scene in another life, and when my BOV took a dump, that was THE EXACT same sound and turbo response I witnessed. Tell them to jump in the car you drive, they witness.

    The issue finally arose on a day that I was off, and able to take my truck into the dealership.

    I have a large vacuum leak. When the boost surges, the pressure finds its way through the system, and is expelled out the leak. Due to the sudden drop in pressure after the boost settles, the pressure actuated hubs lock.

    Basically everytime my turbo boosts up in each gear, my truck is thrown into four wheel drive.

    Wow. Would’ve never guessed that one.

    Which component(s) did they replace?
