Default Turbo whistle

Hey there all you diesel owners, Just got back into the cummins, I am picking up my 2010 3500 in a couple of days.
How can I get the turbo whistle to be louder than it is at stock?
I am going to be putting on an MBRP filter back dual exhaust set up soon after I pick up the truck, not sure on the muffler delete though.
I am giving up my 2009 ram 1500 which sounds super mean with the mufflex muffler set up on it, I just want to get the cummins to sound just a mean.
Any help would be great
Thax in advance.

Remove the silencer ring on the turbo. I think there is a post on here under DIY section showing how to do it.

Get yourself a good intake - S&B is my preference. One of these days I'm going to get their ram air do-hickey for it.

Oh, short of that, pull the intake pipe off your turbo and take the huge plastic piece out of the center. The silencer ring - from my understanding - isn't like the one on the 5.9, it's pressed in. Don't try to remove it. Your '10 might be different than my '08, but if you pull the intake pipe off you should see a substantial restriction in the pipe, designed to make it quiet.

Thanx for all your responses.
I was wondering if the 6.7 would be allittle different than the 5.9's.
Once she is home I will be pulling the intake pipe and looking for the baffle.

Gotta make her sound as mean as she is going to look.
Thanx again all.
Once she is home, and I have a few of the external mods done I will be posting up some pictures.

pulling all the baffles out of the intake pipe produces a bit more whistle, a drop in performamce filter will help some too but a complete intake is the best if looking for more whistle, and the slincer ring can be removed but its a real PITA, there are 3 dowls that have to be drilled out and its not fun, for the exhaust... the filter back wont do very much for you, but if you want to go louder you can get a programmer to turn off the emmissions and remove the filter and cat, but that about the only option, and if your able to get away with it in your area

Since you've got a 2010, you can turn off the EGR with a programmer and not bother with removing everything. I'd highly recommend it. I don't think Cummins has released any longevity specs since the 6.7 came out, but the new Duramax will last 200k miles before needing an overhaul, according to GM. 200k. That's thanks to the EGR in large part.

Anyway, look up H&S performance. S&B filters are better than K&N as well.

Wow, 200k, so by shutting down and removing the EGR I should get even better, since I won't be blowing all that soot back into the intake, right...or am I thinking of the wrong thing.
When I had my 06 LBZ Duramax I put in an EGR blocker plate, i couldn't believe how much crap had built up on the intake from all that soot.

Exactly... the EGR fills your engine with soot, which isn't good for oil life, cylinder wall/ring wear, or anything.

The guys at the shop I went to said they've pulled the EGR off of trucks with as few as 10k miles and there's been ~1/4" of carbon built up in it.

keep your factory intake, all the after market ones do is let dirt in the turbo and ruin it

chances are it will, the only way to move more air is to open the filter up allowing more particles through that shouldnt be in your engine

A large part of moving air is the tubes that the air is moving through - the stock plastic intake's #1 job is making it quiet, followed by moving air. There are baffles and restrictions within the air intake that reduce the flow, hindering the engine's ability to move air.

There are different grades of filtration in the aftermarket, for sure, so people should do their homework. I quit buying into K&N's marketing a while back. Their FIPK is good at moving air and keeping it cool, but the filter isn't great for the reason you pointed out.

Thanx again for all responses.
I decided to go with the 4" turbo back exhuast, EGR/Cooler delete, AFE cold air intake system, and the mini maxx tuner with the tranny upgraded overdrive tune from H&S.
WOW did it wake up this truck, power is unreal, shifts are way smoother than the stock tune, and you can sure hear the ole turbo now.
I should have some pictures up by the end of the weekend.

Yeah I know hoping to have the pictures up by Sunday night.
Also I only went with the 4" as this truck was never ment to pull or race.
Just looking for the extra mileage, and to get rid of the DPF system.
I build ice roads up north and with the constant idle time that DPF system would have shut me down in less than two weeks.
The heaviest thing my Dually should ever see will be my sled or my quad.
Long live the RAM

I wish my truck was a 3500 instead of a 2500 - what's the difference? The sticker that says how much weight you are legally allowed to pull/haul, and a set of overload springs. The overload springs can be bought aftermarket, but that sticker can't. Ever been pulled over by the state cops while overloaded? You don't want to be, it's not generally a pleasant thing.

5" is overkill unless you're running bigger turbo(s) and a whole lot of fuel system upgrades. 4" is about perfect.

Even without the DPF, idling isn't all that great for them.
