Easiest switch to 03 turbo

I have a 2004 6.0 and my dad has a 03 with the 6.0 and we both have exhaust and tunes and i want mine to sound like his. I want the famous 03 whistle and i was wondering if anyone knows the easier way to get this.

I'm assuming you have the late '04, because the early '04's have the '03 motor and turbo.

It's as easy as, removing the '04 turbo and install the '03 turbo. You just wont use the rear mounting bolt, just the front two mounting bolts will hold it. You might as well pick up a new gasket kit for the oil feed line, and o-rings for the drain tube. You could even update the oil drain tube to the newer style.

When you go to remove and install, try not to flex the flex joints on the up-pipe and y-pipe too much. Old flex joints are brittle and may crack.

If you want your truck to sound even better than his 03 turbo get a bd thruster non vgt turbo. Then pops will want what you have. jmo. Non vgt sounds way better/more burly than a vgt and it still has whistle. It's just not as annoying. jmo.

Good or bad has nothing to do with it, it just means you have a late '04. The only difference in the turbo's is the late '04 has more turbine blades, which is less whistle.

I would wait until you have everything on hand and do it all in one shot.

Do you have a monitoring solution? If not, your better off spending your money on making sure your motor is healthy. You may just find out that you need a oil cooler.

^^^^ YES. before I got my studs, before I had gauges, my oil cooler was shot when Marc tested my truck right before he did the studs. 30degree difference is what he found. Danger zone!
