What is the benefit of an '03 turbo on '06

I have seen on here that some people have installed '03 turbos on newer model trucks. Can anyone tell me what the benefit would be?

Some say they makea little more boost, maybe a flow a tad bit better, and a tad bit lower EGT's, but most people just get them for the incredibly loud whistle. Here's a video of mine with a 4" MBRP straight pipe exhaust, to give you a taste of what they're like.

Yeah man, I love mine. And with the EGR delete it's actually a little louder.

But my truck is known at my school as "The Airplane."

The turbo pedestal is different, but I've heard that some people just mount them on their stock pedestals.
