looney wild question

hey guys i just wanted to see if this is normal with the looney wild tune. At idle my truck will go from whistling to a rumble. Is this the vanes cycling from the turbo. I never had this on any other tune, so i was just seeing if this was normal with the wild. Thanks for any help guys Brad
