While towing my boat on Monday under certain conditions the turbo sounded like it was making popcorn. I was in Tow/Haul mode cruising along about 60mph and the tach was around 2000 rpm I believe. As I began to climb a small hill I gave her a little more gas, not enough to downshiftcbut just to maintain speed when it started popping like hell. I immediately glanced at the gauges and the only thing abnormal was the boost needle was bouncing with the popping (0-18-0-18). As soon as I let off or forced it to downshift it would quit. Truck ran fine before, during and after all this. This is my first diesel and this does not seem normal. Do I have something that needs attention? Truck is a 2005 with 8k miles and boat weighs around 8,000 pounds. Thanks for any help or opinions.
