03 has less vanes. 04 has 2 more vanes. 05+ has even more vanes than the 04. No difference really. Same function. Some people say a little lower EGTs with the 03 but there's really not a noticeable difference. It's well worth it for the SOUND though!

I don't think there is any reliability difference between them. I believe the only real difference is the number of vanes on them. The 03 turbo has 10 vanes and the 06 turbo has 15. I could be wrong though, someone will chime in that knows a little more about it.

Less spool up time with the newer turbos.
New ones are also variable vane turbo's, I don't believe the 03's are.

Cool, didn't know that. Thanks.

I knew the newer ones have more vanes thus less spool up time.

Are the 04(12blade) and 05-07(15blade) wheels interchangeable?

The 03 wheel is slightly larger and on the top end can make slightly more power but everyone swaps them for the whistle. On a straight piped truck it is insane.
