Flo~Pro 5" Stainless turbo-back

I helped Tyler (POWERED SPARKLESS) put on the Flo~Pro exhaust we ordered him. It's a turbo back stainless kit with a 4" downpipe and 6" polished stainless tip. That thing sounds mean. At WOT it has more of a deep big block style rumble than my Duramax does (my turbo whistle does overpower alot though). Not sure if the SCT tuners can tune the turbo vane position as much as we can with EFI Live but told him to contact his tuner and see if they could command the turbo to run wide open vanes at idle so that it would get rid of the hiss and have a nice deep rumble. This is what I do on the Duramax's to make the VVT trucks sound like an LB7 at idle and it works well.

I haven't contacted Eric and Innovative yet to ask him about this, but does anyone else have any idea.

At idle the sound is almost like a vacume not the jet sound everybody loves.

Your truck is an 04 so it could have either 12 or 15 exhaust vanes in it. This is dependent upon build date and fords service records. The 10 vane turbo from 2003 is what sounds like the 747.

Dusten - Eric can control the VGT as you stated, but probably doesn't send the files out like that since they're usually created with drag racing, towing or daily driving in mind. Also these 6.0 boys with SCT's don't have the luxury that you and I do of being able to change programs on a switch while driving around

The vane position at idle is a quick change to the tuning and it doesn't affect performance because as soon as you touch the throttle it goes back to where you normally would have it. I only do it at 15mm3 of fuel and less at 800 RPM and less on the DMax's. I have done this tuning on race tunes, tow tunes, DD tunes, economy tunes, ect with no affect on performance - just a nice deep rumbly exhaust note at idle.

Even flashing 5 tunes onto the ECM only takes about a minute on a DMax.

Ford's latest flash actually cycles the veins at idle to keep them from sticking, so I'm sure it could be done. Most people probably don't notice it unless they have a straight piped truck and I'm not sure that Eric's tuning doesn't take it out as mine doesn't seem to do it with his X-race, and I know my veins aren't stuck.
