Basicly I think if you were to change the impeller to an earlier model one, or otherwise refered to as
a Wicked Wheel mod you'd get desired whistle, and a little faster spool rate.

It's an easy easy mod, dont even have to remove the whole turbo, just air intake, intercooler pipe
and side housing, them switch out impellers... nuff said
