Rosewood injectors, swamps injectors, full force, there's many different companies and prices. 160/80 or 160/100 with a D66 and T500 HPOP would really wake the truck up. But you will also custom tuning like said to support these mods and get the most out of them. And the supporting mods are a must. Probably might look into intercooling the truck too, another DIY mod you can do. But yes, there is nothing wrong with the stock turbo and it can handle stage 1 injectors, rebuild your stock turbo and get some injectors and tunes. You'll get plenty of whistle if that's what your mostly wanting.

What are your current mods on the truck? Once I got my TS chip from PHP with the 80hp tune my turbo whistle really woke up. Do you have the exhaust and intake taken care of already or are you stock?

bone stock besides a magna flow exhaust and the superchips, would a custom tune make the whistle better perhaps?

get a open element oil free intake like the 6637 intake I said to look up. and if you still have the stock downpipe, get rid of that too. get more air pushing thru the turbo and it will spool quicker and whistle more. a custom tuned chip that's set up exactly for your truck will always help, canned tunes are just that and can do more harm some times then good.

plenty of companies have great tuning capabilities for the 7.3 platform. I run Power Hungry Performance and really love their stuff. But there are many others that were mentioned in a earlier post.
