Should I do a turbo-back exhaust?

On my 06 King Ranch I have the factory turbo back to the cats and then the previous owner of the truck put a Bank Monster exhaust on it. I am fine with the exhaust thats on it now but was considering upgrading to an MBRP or something else for a little more sound. I rarely tow with the truck and dont have any performance mods on the truck, so will a full turbo back really gain me anything? I guess what I am saying is I dont want to waste the money if its not really going to get me anything besides a little more noise. Any input?

It may be a good idea if you plan to mod down the road like a tuner for example. If you want more sound yank that cat off. As far as performance gain, little to none.

Yea I have the Banks monster exhaust. Take off the cat and pipe it. It sounds a lot meaner and it flows a lot better.

Turbos love it when an exhaust has no restrictions.
