Default whistling turbo

I'm a virgin. This is my first turbo and I'm wondering if I can do something to make my turbo whistle?

There's a baffle in the intake tube that you can take out, it will make it slightly louder. Changing the intake to an open design would make it louder but would be a less efficient intake so I wouldn't recommend it.

Swap the stock variable geometry turbo out for a fixed geometry turbo or as brandonjansen mentioned, replacing the stock intake with and open element filter will increase turbo sound, but that's all it will do on a stock truck.
If you come across posts about people asking about removing the "silencer ring" don't waste your time. Of the posts that I've read, they have not ended with great results.

Yep, you have to come to grips with the fact that the 6.7 Cummins is a quiet running engine. The only way to get a substantial increase in turbo noise is to replace the turbo charger itself, which I doubt you want to do on a new truck. As for removing the muffler, I'm not sure about the 2013-14's but my 2012 only has a resonator. It's only purpose is to eliminate cabin drone.

Honestly in my experience the Rams don't have very loud turbos. I have a 5.9 with the baffle removed and 5" turbo back exhaust and you can hear the turbo but it doesn't sound anything like the whistle you hear on a powerstroke.
