Turbo Whistle

I'm curious, i did the foil delete, and have a straight pipe exhaust. I was wondering what i can do to make my turbo whistle more? Cause right now it sounds pretty good, but i want it to be louder

i cut the down pipe as soon as it was straight enough to adapt, and the rest is 4" back. i dont care about the exhaust sound changing to much with the tunes. but i dont want to change the afterknock (sound) of the engine, its the sweetest sound on earth

Do the WW and get rid of your hood insulation. That, along with you're foil delete are the only things you can do to make the whistle louder on a 7.3.

You are only going to hear it from the motor, you will never get a 7.3 to whistle out the exhaust like a 6.0 will.
