Truck is too Loud

I've had my truck for nearly 11 years now. I bought it when I was 20 and thought I would be the coolest kid in town if I had a truck that was loud. A decade later, I have a wife and a son, a fifth wheel that we use nearly every weekend through the summer and a truck that will drive it's occupants insane with noise. I guess I'm moving on to a "seen and not heard" mentality.

Since my truck suffers from turbo surge, which is why I bought the WW to begin with, would adding an ATS ported housing and re-installing the factory compressor be any quieter than what I have now while keeping me surge free?

If not, are there any other suggestions? My ultimate goal is to have as quiet an interior as I can get. I've done a lot of reading about Dynamat installs as well as the Excursion hush panels but I don't think either of those would help with the screaming turbo whistle.

Thanks

For noise reduction, I did the snowman mod and that really helped. It's just putting a can koozie (or however you spell it) around the steering shaft against the firewall. I've also read that there is also a new (upgraded) seal that will help reduce noise too. All that being said, it didn't reduce the turbo noise much...just the diesel clatter.

The only thing I can really think of that would reduce the turbo noise would be a different intake. Maybe and AIS, or the stock box again. I know when i went to an open element the turbo noise increased quite a bit.

Hope this helps a bit and that other will chime in soon.

I'd put the OE wheel back on the turbo, install an AIS intake, and get some tuning that doesn't surge.

This doesn't make any sense to me. From my experience, no tune will eliminate surge.
I will agree that ais will help quiet the turbo whistle.
Ats housing and/or ww2 should help as well. It is amazing how much quieter excursions are on the interior, not sure whats so different

ATS housing and AIS, which is what I have, is very quiet. I also have dynamat. Aside from the exhaust, it is pretty damn quiet. Of course that does not include in the winter, when it is loud as hell and sounds like it wants to explode. Having said that, if the turbo has to come out for any reason, I might ad the WW2, which is supposed to spool very fast. That will give it a little more whistle, from what I am told.
