Is your fuel pressure ok, do you run the same oil, are you both running motorcraft filters with matching cap, does your ficm voltage check out ok?

03-04 early straight oil rail engines are always louder. Some of it has to do with fuel and oil quality too

If you have a 03-04 with old oil rails in them the engine is way louder than a 05 that what you are probally hearing. my 03 compared to a 05 is a night and day diffrence.

'03 - '04's with dino oil will sound like a 7.3L. Get some 5W-40 synthetic, water/fuel separator, and some Archoil and that thing will sound like a 6.4L.
