I always love posting this video, though one of these days I'm going to get in trouble for linking to someone elses property. He made his own electronic controler but I do believe that there is a diaphragm boost controller that looks like a wastegate now.

Humm...

I have also wondered about this.

But more to the point, I want my 7.3 just to sound like a 6.0 lol

Why dose the 6.0 turbos have so much turbo whistle compared to the 7.3's?

Short answer is that the turbo is spinning faster than ours at a comparable rpm at engine idle. Meaning, at our engine rpm of about 1200rpm our turbos whistle pretty good but the sound is drowned in the engines exhaust noise/note. Now keep our 1200rpm whistle but stack it against 600rpm engine noise. Our turbos would sound pretty cool too.

The point of the VVT turbo is to act like a .60 housing at idle but swing with demand to something closer to 1.20 at throttle. Same as the SD 7.3L with a wastegate but even more swing. In the end the VVT design is not great for overall power and a lot of people are switching them out for a more reliable wastegate system and doubles.
