Turbo Whistle

I have a buddy that wants his Dmax to whistle more. Is there anything to do to them to make the turbo whistle more? I know there are tricks for Dodges, but didn't know about a Chevy. Thanks for any info

Straight pipe and an intake w/ a big filter on the end will help a little. IMO quiet is better, nobody knows what you have.

When I put the K&N intake on my truck the turbo whistle increased dramatically. A few other folks have plugged the silencer box to increase whistle but I dont know if that increases performance any. Good luck.

the little plastic diamond plate piece over the turbo that has the 6.6 turbo diesel on it... that acts as resignator. if you take it off an put another small cone filter on it i noticed the whistle is louder. sounds stupid but it works.
