holy whistling turbo batman

so i got my walker btm in today and i told myself, "now i'm just gonna go check prices for an install" . . .
you guys know the rest. went ahead and got it put in at a meineke. never been to one but ya know, they aren't half bad.
so got it in and the guy started it up. nice sweet rumble. just perfect. i got for lower egt's anyway.
well of course i hammer on it gettin onto the street and WOW
it pops a little much but all the powerstrokes i've heard do that and it's not bad. but the turbo whistle<--- that's all i was doin the whole way back to my dorm. it's got whistle through the whole rmp range. i love it already

it's called the Walker Big Truck Muffler
and this sucker is WAY bigger than i thought but fit very nicely. got the muffle cut from right after it to just after where the upstream muffler pipe is just spot welded and clamped onto the long, main pipe.
you can search it online

i was surprised i got that much out of it just from this muffler. or large pipe. whatever you wanna call it. i almost did the foil delete but didn't. but idk why i didn't. this summer when i'm home and have a place to do it i sure will. the WW really doesn't mean much to me

If you like the whistle then the wicked wheel will make it even louder and not to mention it will fix all or most of the surge

surge is just the delay in boost right?
and it will fix the surge? it's about a 50/50 split on ppl saying it will and it won't
