6.0 Turbo Question

Have 2 questions. 1st, the build date of my truck is 10/03/03. Do I have the 2003 turbo or 2004? 2nd, my current exhaust setup includes the muffler and a gutted kitty. If I take those out and put a straight pipe will I be able to hear the turbo more or will it sound the same?

yes, you should have a 04 gen1 motor, meaning its identical to the 03, and yes you should get a straight pipe, you should hear more whistle.

Is that a bigger turbo or the stock turbo? Whatever it is, it sounds awesome! Also, is that a straight piped exhaust?
