Default 2010 Ram Borla exhaust question

Hey all, I have a 2010 Ram and had a Borla catback exhaust installed about a year ago. I really like it. Good sound.
My engine has the Eco mode. I am not sure how to discribe what is happeneing. If I am just crusing and lightly accelerate, the sound I get is kind of a gurgle (yea, not good with discriptions) before the Eco mode kicks off. It really bothers me. I usually just use the column shifter and get out of using the Eco mode, but I don't want to compromise gas mileage.
I guess my question is has anyone had any issues with the way their exhaust sounds (whether it is Borla, Magnaflow, etc) when their truck goes from the Eco mode into I guess, full power?

That happens with any performance exhaust...it is just the way the motor sounds through a louder exhaust. A bunch of people run MDS off all the time and it doesn't make much if any difference in mileage. I have a Magnaflow setup and run mine in 5 almost always.
