Cat/Dpf delete Exhaust Sound

I got an 2010 f-250 with the cat/dpf delete and no muffler.... Now when i speed up the sound of the exhaust is the same ( like a hair dryer) never changes like my 6.0 did when i gave it the gas. I know they are too different engines but i got passed by another 6.4l and when he speeded up his exhaust sound , sounded like my 6.0 it had a little bark to it , mine doesn't , so my question is what do i have to do to get the exhaust to sound different ? The size of the delete pipe is just the standard one that i ordered from dpfdeletekits.com O i got the sct livewire .... Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks Guys

With stock turbo's, it is impossible to fully get rid of the hairdryer sound. The best option and still be able to retain the grunt at WOT is to do 5" exhaust with a muffler. The Magnaflow 5" muffler seems to be the best.

The truck you heard could have had totally different turbo's on it.

A full 5" exhaust with a 6" tip and 4" downpipe sounds sick. The "hair dryer" noise is present at idle, but when you step on it it sounds like an animal

Increase the size of the pipe to 4" or 5" and put a muffler on it.

this is my exact set up too, and friends driving next to me say it sounds very mean when on the throttle.

Definitely. When on the throttle hard with 4" or 5" exhaust (no muffler), these trucks sound mean. Part throttle and idle sounds like a huge hair dryer though. The turbo setup is the direct cause.

Is there any specific magna flow muffler you prefer?

Thanks alot,

4" downpipe, 5" exhaust. Dumps down towards the ground after the rear axle. Sounds mean. Facing the exhaust at the pavement made all the difference in the world. Also depends on the tune. For example. The 310 has a lot more hiss then the 250...

I dont mind the hair dryer/turbo sound at idle and part throttle. People dont know what the f*** to think when you go by them, and when going next to a building or wall it sounds sick. There is nothing like it and you dont see it too often, people deffinatly get interested when youre driving by
