Are you talking about the blue boot connecting the turbo to the boost tube? I know on my buddies 03 it has blue boots

Your vin1 will be louder in the engine noise itself, but the vin2 turbos will whistle louder. Thats about the only place vin2 is louder.

YEs, VIN #1 is and LB7 and VIN #@ is an LLY. The diiference is the LB7 has a fixed geometry turbo and the LLY has a variable vane turbo. Thats one of the reasons for the difference in sound
