EBPV (Exhaust Back Pressure Valve). It's suppose to help with engine warm up. Most guys disconnect them.

It is a normal characteristic for that engine, however you could have a bad sensor or clogged tube making it more noticeable. There is a plug on the bottom of the turbo that you can disconnect that should make it quit.
