Good or Bad sound???

I just put a 5" stack kit on my 97 F350 PSD. I have a question. I'm hearing a really loud whooshing sound when I'm driving at a constant speed. If I accelerate/decelerate(let off the throttle) it goes away. It almost sounds like there is air sucking back through the exhaust. Kinda worried this might be a bad thing. Bad back pressure or something??? Good? Bad? Ok?

I drove the truck with the exhaust cut off for 1 day before I had time to put this stack kit on. It did the sound then too.

exhaust backpressure valve It comes on when the truck is cold, and kina maes the truck feel sluggish, it supposedly warms the truck sooner when temperatures drop. Does it ever stop or will it do it all day? I gutted my EBV about 20K ago and didn't notice it taking any longer to get up to temp. Do you have any of those symptoms??? Tough to say exactly what it is when you can't hear it.

I think your right Stroked... when I went to work this morning after 15mins of warm up... it was doing it, and when I went home (8 hours later) but after I came home... I kept going to and from class. And after awhile it didnt do it anymore. Even after I left the truck sit for an hour. Who knows? lol as soon as I wake up tomorrow at 6, I'm going go down and start the truck, and then when I leave, usually around 6:35-40 I'll see if it does having warmed up for so long. Thanks for your input!
