The 03 Turbo has a distinct Whistle out of all the turbo's. Its a little lagger then an 06 but alot of folks love the sound.

Re: 2003 turbo on 2006 truck

The whistle gets old fast....especially in the winter months when you start the truck, and let it warm up for 20 minutes on high idle...with a straight piped exhaust...it's rediculous.

But I LOVE the way my non-vgt turbo from Trusted Performance sounds!!
Just like a big block chevy...deep rumble...no whistle.

I dont think it has any power difference whatsoever, just the whistle noise everyone is looking for
