yeah, plus the gasser you hear the pluses. The turbo on the diesel mashes up the pluses into one and then swirls it out.

The turbo acts as somewhat of a muffler. My straight piped 7.3 was loud, but my f150 without a muffler and cat still in place was louder.

7.3 are very throaty deep ill kick your ass loud. my 6.0 doesnt qualify as "loud" until its tuned and got fuel going to it pretty good. its only loud even then at 2500 to 3000 rpms above or below it it aint got much to it.
If you really want loud for real. Cut it off below the dp or rock a hood stack
