I personally think there is a difference but I also have a one of a kind exhaust system on my truck. Either way though, between the durastroke, stage 2, and stage 3 turbos that I have ran on my truck, the exhaust note at idle seemed slightly deeper than the stock turbo did, even though I had a stock turbine wheel in it. I know my Stage 3 sounds like a frickin cummings at idle. Just ask anyone whose heard it (there are a couple of folks on here). I had one guy at the dyno tell me, "You're truck doesn't sound like the other trucks with the MTW turbos. It sounds deeper". I was like Huh, ok. Thanks?? This of course, is at idle only. At hwy speeds I don't think there is much of a difference unless you have a 10 bladed turbine wheel.

I have a durastroke w/10 blade and the whistle is insane. I get people rolling up windows or plugging their ears at stop lights, but I do 5" straight pipe

Gary is right. I have a 4in down pipe that opens up to a 5in pipe onced under the cab and then the 5in pipe goes to a single 8in mitre cut MRBP stack with a 5in straight through Dynomax muffler stuffed inside the stack. The muffler can not be seen unless you climb up in the bed and look down into the stack. I know I really how it sounds. It gets a good bit of head turns at dyno events.
