Sounded like a jet

I was in Sarasota this past weekend in a bass tournament. When I was trailering my boat I heard what I thought was a low flying g2 jet. I turned around and to my surprise it was a 99-04 modded out F250 dually with what looked to me like a 18 to 24" lift with big rig mud tires. The truck was freaking awesome I was jealous. The guy had it named "All Jacked up". What tripped me out the most though was the sound this thing was making I noticed he had what had to be a six inch exhaust but that wasn't what was making th roar it had to be a super big turbo or something. I don't understand why it would be whining at such low rpm's though. What do you guys think he had done to that monster? Whatever it was I want to do it because it sounded like it was powerful.

The 03 6.0's and early 04's sound like jets with at straight pipe. It was more than likely the stock turbo.
