Want a louder turbo?

Id like my turbo louder, anyone got any input. I'm already running a 5'' flopro with muffler.

I'd like mine louder too. I have a 4" Flo Pro with muffler and it's been a huge improvement over stock, but more would be nice. I remember someone talking about using metal pipe somewhere instead of plastic, but I can't recall what it was exactly.

I would straight up cream my pants everytime the truck was running if it sounded like this...

Too bad first Generation 6.7L Powerstrokes like us need to install $4,000 turbo mount before they can even consider buying a VGT...

I've heard the same thing. Man, I dont see how it could cost that much just for the mount. It should be about the same cost regardless of which turbo you pick. That being said I'm no turbo expert, so probably missing something for sure.

Yeah it don't make sense to me either. The material alone can't be worth half that much. I don't get why a VGT needs a different mount than a non-VGT. I say go VGT or go home. This is the only VGT conversion mount I know of...
