I have been wanting some new exhaust for quite a while now just waiting for some xtra $$$$. Today I heard a 05+ truck that sounded like a freaking jet at idle and had an ear piercing whistle with a slight growl when they took off from the stop sign. I couldnt ask him what kind it was but is this how they sound with exhaust on them? I really want some now.:hyper::hyper:

Its possible but it had the 05+ grill in it but that could have converted. It sounded evil.

RWalker lets hear it. I have heard some on the internet but it is hard to get a good idea sometimes what they really sound like.

I'll make a video tomorrow of mine. You won't believe the turbo whistle. It's even loud at idle. Great looking truck BTW. What tunes you using? I run the extreme street on my 6.0 and it barely smokes, which is nice for the neighbors

Ex sounds like a jet

Hello,

Haven't been on here for a while, but had a few questions. Have an 03 Ex with the 6.0. Have a true 4inch tb magnaflow exhaust system with the cat delete. I love the sound when I get on it, but the turbo whine at idle is a bit much. My question is if I put the stock cat back on will the turbo whine decrease? I'm also curious if it is common for the 03 6.0 to cycle every 5-10 seconds. I have this great deap throaty tone at idle then the turbo spools and its like i'm sitting on the wing of a boeing 777 at take off. Any advice/info is greatly appreciated.
Thanks
Aaron

Thanks for the offer, but I just want to calm the whistle down a bit. My turbo is strong, and I love the throttle response on my ex, but its difficult to take clients to lunch and carry on a conversation when all we hear is my truck. Will the cat calm the whistle down? Oh, please don't get it confused, I love the sound, but my Ex is my office most days and it is really loud. I can only imagine what this summer with the windows down will bring.
