^^^^^ This. Best described as a "whoooosh" sound? Goes away when you git on the go-pedal? That's the EBPV. Sensor could be bad, or the tube that leads to it could be clogged. Gazillions of threads on the topic; just search on "EBPV". Other options are to decommission or remove it.

It was almost two years after I bought my truck that I heard the ebpv on my truck, it didn't operate before I did my exhaust. After the exhaust it did it driving down the road, I just unplugged the Damn thing.

I am about to unplug mine and I would like to delete it. It either comes on when the truck first starts and opens about 10 second later, or it stays on my whole drive even when its warm. But if I don't hear it open at start-up I can shut it off and start it right back up and it will open. Its starting to get on my nerves.

I agree with everyone else, 99% sure thats you ebpv sticking. Sounds like someone just put plate in your exhaust right after the turbo, no power when you first accelerate it seems fine for a sec or so then comes on?
