Question Turbo Whistle

I went into work yesterday and parked my truck behind the building as always..from BEHIND the building i hear what sounds like a 747 Jet engine in the parking lot..i hurry around and see what i'd guess was a 99 or 00 F-250. I couldnt even hear anything BUT whistle coming out of the exhaust. Im wondering how to make my truck whistle like that. Ill be buying an ATS Housing AFE Stage 2 and my exhasut will be straight piped. How loud of a whistle will i have with that? Anything else i can do for more whistle? Sorry for such the long post..

Yeah the 6.0 whistle is by far the best. I do like the turbo whistle of my 7.3 at around 1000-1200 RPM though, spools up a little and sounds awesome.

I was thinking about doing the foil delete to increase the 'whistle' of my 7.3, is it worth the hassle?
