Every DBW car I have ever driven has a lag. Everyone. Explorer, F-150, M-class, LS430, X5, A4, A6, 5-series, jetta, Magnum, and 300C. Some are better and some are worse, but the lag is there on everyone.
Aussie Ex had same issue.
I had a similar problem with mine (even check engine message)and since they replaced the electronic accelerator pedal it has been a heap better.
hope this helps mate.
I found a post (below) on Blue Oval News that describes much better than I could everything that I experience. I don't care for this but it looks like I'll just have to live with it.
"The 2004 Explorers have a "Fly by wire" electronic throttle control. I don't know when this was started. In general, it gives smoother control, but you can't rush it - it requires a slow and patient application of the accelerator pedal. For one example, if you are off the accelerator ,coasting, approaching a corner, then you start adding power, there is a pause while the PCM decides what it is going to do. If you add the power too quickly, you catch it as it is deciding to shift gears and you get a shift that is not smooth, and if done too quickly, you get a bump as it shifts."
