YUP,, no whistle at'tall:dunno:
These turbo's have variable vanes. They tend to stick with coke (soot) or rust. Do you drive it hard or just on short trips. Shortie trips and lots of idle '= no good for PSD. Take intake cleaner off at turb and see if it is spinning free or any damage to vanes.

I love the way it sounds. I sometimes wish mine sounded like that all the time at idle. I dont really like how th 6.0s sound at idle i like the deep rumble.

I must ask the burning question... Why would anyone unplug the turbo just to hear how it sounds without the turbo?:dunno::doh:
