    Really these trucks don't have alot of turbo whistle, the best advice I could give would be a catless downpipe, straight pipe all the way back. Or bigger turbos... I've got my 2.7 straight pipe and really only hear the snails with the windows down.

    From what I have read on here, down pipes, VTA (Vent to Atmosphere) and CAI (Cold air Intake) will give you more whistle. VTA is more of the blow off sound though.

    Yea I just did a search and read the same about it not being very loud. I'm just going to leave it all stock and enjoy it.

    Just vent your blow-off valve. It's loud enough to give you a little grin...

    Intake, downpipes and an exhaust all accomplish what your looking for

    If you watch the video in this thread, Rutt3.5's truck almost sounds like a diesel the way the turbos whine when he lets up rolling up to the light at the end. Copy what he did.
