    Stupid diesel questions

    So I'm new to the diesel scene,
    and I gotz me two stupid questions.

    1) I heard some guy with a Ford Excursion the "whistle" coming off his turbo was loud as hell and sounded cool. (at-least to me)

    Is it that way due to an after market turbo??



    2) The big ass exhaust tip, whats the benefit? does it change the sound?


    I have a f-250 with a Edge juice programmer, K&N air intake and a 4" RBP exhaust all the back, I think its a 4" tip.



    Thanks

    Aftermarket intakes will make the turbo whistle louder. As well as removing the silencers. On ford 6.0s with exhaust they are very loud with turbo whine.

    The Lucas oil should make it do that.

    On my 7.3 I was able to produce more of a spool by replacing the blades in the turbo .

    I have a 6.0 and 4 in pipe from the turbo back. No cat no muffler. My shit sounds like a jet turbine. The 7.3 with straight pipe has a bad ass whistle at idle and when u rap the throttle. It gets louder with a nice open intake also. The excursion u heard prob was a 7.3

    So remove the silencer? I will ask my mechanic guy. The Excursion I heard was way louder than mine. I mean way louder.

    My 7.3 has a kinda fluttering whistle sound at idle, almost like you can distinguish the sound from each cylinder firing.

    The turbo had a ring in it you can take out and that will make the whistle sound. I had a 6.0 with straight pipe, edge programmer and Air Force one intake. It had a little more whistle then stick but as soon as I took out the ring in the turbo the whistle was very loud.
