6.0 03 turbo swap with & without muffler

Before I did the swap I wanted to find a video of how the 03 turbo swap sounded with no cat but with a muffler as I had the 4 inch magnaflow exhaust and compare it to a straight through 4 inch exhaust and had no luck. So incase anyone is interested here are the two videos I did and you can tell a difference the most at idle and when you cut the truck off. Also it seems to be more jet sounding all the time driving over having a muffler which is what I was hoping for. Its not a huge difference but you can still tell a good bit, for those who were curious like me, now you know.

with magnaflow muffler, no cat and 4 inch piping...

If you ran a non-packed muffler, you would have a lot more turbine noise than with a packed muffler like the magnaflow

I won't fault you there for a SECOND!

But, non-packed mufflers give you the turbine whistle without as much drone. Aftermarket muffler companies use packed mufflers because they're simple and cheap. I don't care for them

If that's how mine sounds after I put a muffler on it, I'll be removing my turbo.
