2000 F-250 hissing when i accelerate

It has been a bit colder then usual here in tennessee. When I start my truck i let it warm up a bit but then when i am driving i am getting a hissing noise it seems like only when I accelerate. Does anybody have any pointers?? Have i done something wrong or is this normal??

Its normal. Their is a flap in ur turbo exhaust that will close whenever it is cold out. helps to warm the engine faster
