Turbo fart....common for the 6.0L. No issue just do not do it all the time on purpose.

very common, it is just the Variable Geometry Turbo's way of acting like a waste gate, just a turbo fart..

Yes, do not do that intentionally. Even rolling hard on the throttle and suddenly coming off the pedal can cause it. Just remember it is "normal" for it to happen, just don't make it a "normal" occurrence when you are driving.

Okay thanks guys! If I got a waste gate would it keep new from doing that even accidentally? And does anyone know where too get one for a stock 6.0?

you can't put a wastegate on it, no need for it, it really doesn't hurt anything, but it makes the vanes in the turbo react quickly, when you think about it might actually help keep them clean.
