Sounds like the ebv. Its doing what its supposed to. Drive it around for about 10-15 min. It should go away. Its there to warm the motor faster

Crawl underneath and check where the uppipes meet the Y collector. They use exhaust donut gaskets to seal and are prone to leaking. This is what mine looked like when I was changing my clutch.

Mine leaked from there as well, but never made an obvious audible noise in the cab. I think alot of black on mine was from forced pressure from trying to drive the truck with the ebv closed.

When I regasketed those, 3 of the 4 bolts broke at the collector to turbo. I ended up having to buy a new collector from ford. Which involved removing the turbo/pedestal. So while I had the pedestal removed I gutted the ebv and blocked off the actuator rod.
