The tech is probably right. All that air being forced into the motor under throttle needs to go somewhere after you let off the accel and it is just trying to go out the back of the turbo. Read up on turbo 'farts.'
And also read up on 6.0 performance. You'll lose that K&N and '45HP' chip really fast.

Oh, and

I don't. If this was a gasser, maybe. As it is, diesel's don't have throttle valves, so when you let off the accelerator it may make a WHOOSH sound momentarily, but it won't be a persistent rubbing noise. You need a second opinion.
