What year? I can't decide if you have a problem or if your only finally hearing the natural turbo scream of a 6.0. The 03's were really loud.

you have a leak somewhere between the egr cooler ends or a y-pipe is cracked , seen this many times and know exactly the noise you hearing , the most common place to look is at the clamp where the rear egr port clamps to the up-pipe , the metal gasket may have fallen and gotten it to not seal up there , or even the clamp is loose
