Have 2 questions. 1st, the build date of my truck is 10/03/03. Do I have the 2003 turbo or 2004? 2nd, my current exhaust setup includes the muffler and a gutted kitty. If I take those out and put a straight pipe will I be able to hear the turbo more or will it sound the same?

yes, you should have a 04 gen1 motor, meaning its identical to the 03, and yes you should get a straight pipe, you should hear more whistle.

You will hear more whistle with a straight pipe for sure.

you have the right set up, if you want that sound... my motor was built 2 months prior to yours and it sounds just like that when i dont have a muffler installed.

I may have to do it since no one said anything negative about having it done. Hopefully after its done it will sound like your alls trucks. I can hear the whistle better now with the muffler and gutted kitty but its nothing like yall's straight pipe exhaust.
