Don't quote me on this but I think the older turbo's are louder. Maybe some OBS guys will chime in. It could be an aftermarket turbo, you would have to measure it some how and compare it to stock. Dunno

you may have a downpipe already man, they say it really lets the obs scream compared to that squished snake lookin stock downpipe.

My OBS when you got on it full throttle up a steep hill I would see 22psi stock turbo with an intake and exhaust. The OBS have a wheel similar to the wicked wheel and they def whistle a bit, but nothing like my truck now with the foil delete too.
