Whooshing noise from exhaust

I get this whooshing noise from the exhaust when cold, it does it about every five to ten seconds, It also idles rough once in a while, no check engine light, is this normal? This is my first power stroke. Also this is a 2000 7.3. Thanks for any help you can offer. Also I did use the search first but could not find my same issue.

Thanks Bob

Its the EBPV (exhause back pressure valve). It activates when ambient temp is below 40F and oil temperature is below a certain temperature (not sure how cold).

You can read all about cold operation of the 7.3 HERE
