how to get a 7.3 to whistle like a 6.0???

Sup guys

I just helped a friend put an exhaust on his 6.0. That thing sounds so insane! Im wonderin how to get a 7.3 to whistle like a 6.0. they sound so awesome. Even at idle you can hear it whistle from like a block away. im just wonderin the best way to get a 7.3 to be as loud as that.
Thanks
Ross

If your buddies truck was a 2003, forget it...lol. But, you can straight pipe it, do the foil delete, intake, pull of the insulation off the hood and all that will get ya close. Good luck.

welcome!
also you can put in a wicked wheel (99+), and remove the EBP valve, but sixers have there own sound and matchin it will be very hard.

if your truck is a 99+ you can also put an ATS ported housing on it with a WW. Combine this with everything said above and that WILL make it whistle VERY loud. It won't sound the same, but it'll be loud.

It took 3 of us working very comfortably, (see garage for pics) 3 hours to do mine, but blackcloudstroker had done one before, so I just kinda handed him tools and he busted right through the whole job taking it on and off! Allow at least 4-6 if you don't have help, and you have to lay on the engine, most guys says its just from being uncomfortable that makes the job bad.

Great results tho!!!!!!

I'm matching my new wheel up with some 5" exhaust here in a week or two, so we'll see how loud it is then!

I've done three getting ready to my fourth this weekend, really easy to do. Hardest part is getting the clamp loose on the back of the turbo, other than that like purdue said it's uncomfortable

Welcome to the Forum. Start with the intake and foil delete. The bad thing about the straight pipe is the engine noise, that is if you're going for a sixer sound. The 6.0 just has a smoother sound to it. I'm definatly not saying it wouldn't sound good, just not like a 6.

IF YOU WANT MAXIMUM WHISTLE AT MINIMAL COST TRY THIS...
*in order from cheapest to most expensive*
- Hood Insulation removal
- Foil Delete
- REMOVE HOOD and WINDSHEILD (lol jk)
- Open Element intake IE:Tymar/AFE
- Wicked Wheel (early 99 compressor wheel)
- 4" Straight pipe
- ATS ported housing

Beyond that you're going to want to look at other turbo's, seems the Garrent Gt435 or whatever whistles like crazy on the video's I've seen.

Here is mine w/ 4" exhaust, Foil Delete and Open Element intake...
