As far as I know it wouldn't change anything but the sound.

No real performance gain other than the whistle. Won't cause you any issues compared to your 06 turbo.

Are there any tests for performance differences?

Ya, Garrett Powermax. Its basically a modified 03 turbo. It has the whistle and supports up to 175 extra hp. I cant wait til mine gets here in a week or so

So a Power max will sound just as good as an 03 turbo, and increase power with supporting mods?

Keep in mind with stock injectors no turbo modification is going to get you a bunch of extra HP. The stock turbo is pretty efficient in making power with stock sticks. If you want more HP you're going to need more fuel.
