03 turbo question.

I want a 03 turbo. I dont have a 03 turbo. I dont need a 03 turbo my 05 is doing fine as far as I can tell. But I love the jet sound,and want more of it. So here is my question-If Im only looking for the sound and do not need the added performance of a bigger turbo, am I better off to just go with a 03 oem turbo or is their a aftermarket that you suggest that I should look at.
Thanks for your time and knowledge!

If you're not after performance, you're probably better off just getting an 03 turbo but I would still give Adrian a call and see what he has in his bag of tricks. He might be able to get you the sound, some performance, and save you money in the end too. No guarantees but give him a call and see what he says. Just my $.02
