not sure there is one on the powerstrokes, the 6.0's all you need to do is put a straight pipe exhaust on it and you will get plenty of whistle

What year truck? 03's will sound like an F16 just off idle, 04's are a little quieter. 05 through 07 even quieter.

You do realize that the whistle is from the turbine side, right? The silencer ring is on the compressor side.

03 Silencer rings caan be removed rather easily. 04 and later need to be machined off as they are part of the housing.

Well... if you have an Early 04 it is possible that you have an 03 Engine.

The 04 Engine have the ICP on the passenger side valve cover... The 03's have them near the back of the turbo.
