wastegate solenoid code

i have a 99 f350 7.3 powerstroke ,i'm having a funny noise coming from the turbo wastegate (i think) if i'm driving down the road at a steady speed and rpm it makes a ffffffffffffffffff noise, but if i let off the gas or get on the gas it goes away. i had my brother run a code scan and got a p1690 code , i replaced the wastegate control solenoid and the problem is still there. it seem only to do it in the winter time . does anyone know what voltage should be going to the solenoid

I'll bet it's your EBP valve making the hissing noise. You can test that theory by unplugging the air temp sensor on the air filter box and see if it still does it. If not, it's your EBP system actiing like it was designed to. It's there to get the engine warmer quicker by increasing backpressure on the exhaust. It's only active below 45F outside temp and oil temp below 167F. Once the engine warms up, the EBP system is inactive. The EBP system is also disabled (the valve opens) if you mash the go pedal.
