More turbo whistle, but not much more. It is a common thing to do to the Holset turbos found on Cummins engines although it only takes 2 minutes to remove it on one of them. It is not worth the effort to be honest on a PSD.

My 04 turbo whistles nicely. I like my truck sounding like a diesel not a jumbo jet taking off.
