No turbo whistle

Alright so I have a 05 6.0 and I recently got a 5" mbrp exhaust straight piped. I'm not getting the whistle that everyone else gets. I've seem videos on YouTube and the whistle is so loud. I get no whistle at all. What do I need to do? Do I have a bad turbo?

Yep, the 05-07 turbos are a lot quieter than the 03 turbo.

I have an 07 an it whistled really loud before Ford reflashed my FICM PCM and TCM. Now it sweeps the VGT solenoid while warming up. Can def hear the change in exhaust note in stages. Once the truck is warm, the whistle is there just not as loud.
