Arrow Exhaust system with the loudest turbo whistle

I have the factory exhaust straight piped. It's starting to get alittle annoying with the vaccum sound on cold morning startups. So i'm looking for a 4" turbo back system with a muffler and no cat but yet can still hear the turbo without the vaccum sound. What exhaust system out there has the loudest turbo whistle?

Thanks,
Tom

The turbo is what is making that vacuum noise... so it's going to come with the turbo whistle. My diamondeye 4" turbo back catless system has a lot of whistle (2003) but it does make the vacuum sound when idling.

Yeah i would say your kinda out of luck with this one, can't muffle one sound and not the other, any aftermarket exhaust will still pronounce the turbo, most mufflers will take out some of the mid-range drone, but thats it.

personally, i think the 6.0 strait pipe sound is great! really stands out among the crowd. i just put on a 6" stack and cant get enough of it! anyways, good luck!

The whistle isn't going to change much between each exhaust. Its the turbo itself that changes the whistle. The 03 6.0 is by far the loudest whistle. An 04 is kind of a mix between an 03 and 05-07. And the least whistle is the 05-07. It all about the number of vanes. But a 6.0 is the best sounding straight piped diesel ever IMO.
