Powerstroke no turbo sound

has anyone tried pulling off the turbo of a powerstroke and seeing what it would sound like? I bet it would sound good! Someone should try it, although it is an electronic motor it might throw codes but it otta be good for like a short period of time i suppose. What do you think?

What the crap is wrong with you?

You pull the turbo off a powerstroke you will over heat and not have any power and all kinds of stuff.

The electronics is not an issue. Its the fact that the motor wouldnt get much air. If you want go get a 7.3 IDI motor most of them are non turboed.

Why's that? I didn't say go drive it on the freeway and tell me how it does to 0-60, i just wanted to hear what it sounds like just revving, having "dual manifolds" I just thought it would sound cool.

He asked what we thought and I answered honestly--if he wasn't ready for all the possible answers, especially for a question as goofy as that one was, he shouldn't have asked it in the first place.

They call its a TURBO diesel for a reason.... Because it has a TURBO on it.
