If it's just the whistle, not the rpm's, it is just the turbo vanes cycling at idle. It's part of the latest Ford ecm flash, nothing to worry about.

Yes, you can add me to the list to tell you that it's completely normal to hear the turbo whistling, as per Ford's latest caibration level 6U7A-12A650-FFE for 2006/2007 6.0L F-250/F-350. Which dealer did you have this work done at, if you don't mind me asking?
