97 7.3l is lacking acceleration when cold. Usually takes 10 minutes to heat up and return to normal acceleration. There is much built up soot on turbo pedestal, hissing noise is associated with occuring problem. Could the servo that controls this valve not be operating incorrectly?

There is a valve that closes when the engine is cold. It is controled by the pcm and needs air,oil temperature readings from the engine to open the valve. If the noise goes away after a warmup then the valve is operating normally. Mine is working this time of year also. Several people have disconnected it and made it into a retarder of sorts. Mine is still connected and will stay that way until it quits then I will either hold it open or remove the guts from the inside.
