Straight pipe means no muffler, and likely no cat either.

I run full turbo back FloPro in 5" and like it. 4" downpipe feeding into a 5" pipe under the truck. No cat.

5" is total overkill if you aren't going to be making 500+HP.

turbo back mbrp or similar straight pipe. Forget the muffler they sound great without it. On a previously owned truck I had a 4 in turbo back silver line with a muffler and I now have a 4 in mbrp turbo back straight pipe. I think the only time the truck sounds louder with the straight pipe is when you are seriously getting your foot into it. I even think the straight pipe has less drone to it.

2004 Ford f350 6.0 4x4 king ranch 4" mbar turbo back, sct x4 with php tunes, running full synthetic in every part that takes oil. Arp head studs and egr delete. Coolant bypass and oil bypass.

I am looking for the same, My 05' here in Arizona requires a cat. so I gutted mine and currently just running one straight section after the cat. I am going to buy a cat back 4" when I can. Also going to change the turbo exhaust wheel to a kc turbo 10 blade W/360 rebuild kit and clean the girl up a little.
