Want more whistle out of my 7.3 TD

Just wondering if anyone had any other ideas on how to get more whistle out of my 7.3 TD. ? I got a billet turbo wheel , S&B cold air kit , 7" stacks ,SCT race tune foil delete , hood insulation delete , its loud but want it louder at the turbo sound . Also gets 18mpg with 6.5" lift with 37" Nitto Grapplers , stock gears . Thanks for any help ! Also I know the 6.0 would of been louder but didn't want the issues that some of my friends are having with there 6.0's no offence to anyone .

in cab whistle or exhaust whistle?


in cab whistle just get a 38r.

if you want exhaust whistle get rid of the stacks (no whistle) and install 4 inch pipe that routes right in front of the rear tire. or right by the passenger door up to you

I installed the original WW for surge issues (fixed that) and the wheel whistles pretty loud....I heard the billet wheels are better in some respects but whistle far less.

What size pipe is going from your down pipe to the stack base? Kause if you open that up too it should get Lauder, and I think the aftermarket intakes choke the sound a bit, not compared to stock but just overall, use an open element type instead of something in a box

Mine whistles like crazy. Riff raff wheel, AFE intake and red line disconnect. It was pissing my off on the last road trip. Maybe I'm getting old.

stacks just kill turbo whistle. my friend has stacks and you dont hardly hear any whistle.

riffraff billet wheel is way noisier than the gen1 wicked wheel.

then you can always remove the hood insulation and the foil on the drivers side intercooler pipe. those are free. but the OP already did both.
