I've got an 05 king ranch with dual mbrp exhaust s&b intake sct tune. A guy I know said to use an earlier 6.0 turbo? It doesn't seem to whistle like some of the other trucks I see drive around

An '03 turbo will give you a louder whistle, or a powermax. you get the 03 sound and performance gains. And if you have a muffler or cat removing those will increase your whistle

Turbo from a 2003 6.0 will do the trick.

Used 03 turbo -- $300-400
New Powermax -- $1300

Performance gains over your current set up for either turbo on stock injectors is minimal.
