you can find a used 03 turbo and swap it out with your 05, its a pretty common swap.

No you cant just change the vanes you would be basicly having to change the whole center section. If your really looking for the whistle only just do what was stated above find yourself a 03 Turbo, also with a pedestal.

I just did this and LOVE the sound difference! If you have not heard it in person you havent heard it. Videos do not do the sound justice!! Also if you cant find an 03 pedestal at a decent price or at all the 05 ped will work.

No they are just as good. some people say they even add a little more hp but thats up in the air. basically its going to be the same + the whistle.

The only thing I can think of thats different besides the exhaust blades is the newer turbos have grooves in them to help the oil drain better I think to help cool it better.

The 05 pedestal will work, but it puts more stress on the up pipe because only 2 bolts will be holding the turbo to the pedestal instead of 3.
