cold weather startup???

first winter with my 02 psd dually, and had a question for the guru's
at very cold weather startup...she starts like a champ, but soon after the idle bumps up to 1100 rpm and it sounds like the exhaust is restricted or bypassed. If I touch the fuel peddle, it kicks right back to normal...I assume it is a warm up choke.
The main info I would like to know, is when I leave after 3-4 mins of warmup, and at regular almost idle acceleration it sounds like the truck bypasses the turbo as I hear a fweshing (air blowing) sound at the passanger side, If I push a little harder on the peddle it goes away, and once it is up to regular operating temperature, all returns to normal.

is this a feature powerstrokes have so that at cold temperatures the turbo will not compress too much to damage the engine?

thanks to all info
cheers
Todd

This is probably just your EBPV or exhaust back pressure valve. It closes to aid in engine warm up. Perfectly normal.

Rick has you covered. It's the EBPV and it's normal. Many people remove it because it's a restriction in the exhaust system or you can wire it up to a switch and use if as an exhaust brake.
