See if you can read the tag. You may need a mirrow:dunno:
It will have part number and serial number on it

You should be able to tell I mean you can really notice the whistle...the whistle on mine is louder then the exhaust. But because you had yours replaced it might not be. But hope so

I think it's just the whistle and the slight power increase, but probably just the whistle for some reason.

Mine came with one in 04, and they replaced it with a later model when it was warrantied. If you want to see for sure, pull off your intake hose and look at the compressor housing. There will be a snap ring holding the silencer if it's an 03, and the silencer will be machined into the housing if it's a later turbo.

I have heard stories about a silencer ring on the 03 turbos but have never meet anyone that said they removed theirs. Have you removed one before? Also how much whistle is gained by this? Thanks for your answers and sorry...Hijack over.

yes, it just takes a couple screwdrivers to pop it out. The whisle increases on the intake side, and I would assume you get a flow increase out of it. I plan to machine mine out of my late model turbo later this summer when I clean it. I'll let you guys know how that goes.
