03 is 10 Blade, 04 is 12 blade, and 05+ is 15 blade. I put one on my 06 this weekend and yes the whistle is great, it has a tiny bit more lag off the line, but IMO pushes more ar quicker so when it hits it is alot quicker. I also build boost faster at a roll... Did I mention the whistle?? lol

The early build dates of the 2004's came with the 03 Turbo. Check your build date, you may be lucky.
