I too am curious how I could get my OBS to spool up like that? I have a pretty good Turbo whistle with it stock. (Better then any other I've heard.) But I want louder lol.

With the 6.4 you wont get a loud wistle like the 6.0, due to the dual turbos. There is another thread on here about a single turbo setup on the 6.4 and it has plenty of wistle. But would you rather have the wistle for less bottom end and a steep price???

The best sounding 6.4 I've heard is 4in exhaust

Single turbo or Elite's big compound setups on a 6.4 sound great.

I may be wrong but I know I read it somewhere or might be close, I have an 03 6.0 with 5 inch straight exhaust with 12 tip and my neighbors tell me they know When I'm comin home cause they can here me miles down the road just from the whistle , I always wondered y so I asked my mechanic he told me the 6.0 turbos or the 03 year had more veins in it or less veins in it or something like that. It's something with the way the turbo is designed that's different from the other turbos. Idk. I might be wrong but I know I he told me there's something about the turbo itself

I wish you would ditch the 12" tip...but to each their own. An 03 turbo has 10 blades on the exhaust side. Late 04 and 05-07 have 13-15. Regardless, a 03 6.0 turbo wouldn't fit on the 6.4. Go with a single turbo in a 6.4 and you'll have the whistle you desire.
