Make turbo whistle real loud.

Hey guys, new to ford here. Just picked up 7.3 with a garret turbo on there.

I was wondering what I could do to make the turbo whistle a lot louder like all the other fords around here.

I know on the cummins you can take te silencer ring off but I heard fords do not have the ring. Any help?

Linex built this truck, it has full ats exhaust, all sorts of stuff. Just doesn't whistle as loud as I would like it.

Foil delete on the IC pipe?

What are you looking for? louder whistle in the cab or out the exhaust?

What i did was custom make 5" exhaust and my turbo screams! I bought a MBRP 4" downpipe and then bought 8 feet of 5" straight pipe and a 45 angle from my local autoparts store and dumped it in front of my rear wheel. I slaped a 6" MBRP tip and thats it.. so basically the shorter the exhaust the louder it will be.

The big question is what are the other Ford's you're comparing it to? A 7.3 will never whistle like a 6.0.

True that, I've just heard some really whistle super loud, just wanted that areas and the cheapest. I don't want to mod the exhaust because its a full ats.

This set up will get you about as loud as they get on a 7.3. If you want 6.0 sound, unfortunately, gotta go with a 6.0.
