nope it won't work because the way the intake is made on the 03... UNLESS the 04 turbo is off an early 04

I got the 04 turbo off a wrecked truck. i think my the vanes are sticking on mine. probably just pull the housing off and clean the soot out but i was just wondering if i switched them out if i would gain anything in performance.

Now is this due to just the whistle, or is there some other benefit to the 03 turbo that people seek? Besides less vanes and cool sound?

the 03/early 04 has a higher flowing turbine wheel and a slighter larger compressor wheel. an early 04 turbo will fit on your 03 but late 04+ will not, the pedestal will not clear the intake manifold. if the 04 turbo you bought has 10 blades on the turbine it will fit, if it has 13 it wont. just look through the outlet on the turbine housing and count.
