03 turbo vs 05 turbo

So I finally found a 03 turbo to do the swap . The swap was really pretty easy. Heres what Ive noticed. 1. It hits peak boost faster but still only peaks what my 05 did. 2. The whistle is like a dog call for chevys and dodges that want to race.

What are you guys boosting that have swaped.

03 have 10 vanes exhaust side, 04s have 12, and 05+ have 15.

I noticed smoother, faster spooling, and 4 more pounds boost on same tunes. And of course the infamouse jet engine whistle!

Does the '03 turbo lower EGT's? How much?

My '06 whistles like a jet, guess I need to find a '03 with open exhaust and hear the difference.
Mine is loud as all get out. People comment on it all the time.
