Not at all, it will just be louder and cost more for the exhaust. The biggest down pipe you can run is a 4" and changing into a 5", so I see no need if you don't have a lot of HP to get a 5" unless you want it louder and for looks...

nope, just personal preference changes the tone to make it deeper, but normally a 4" is perfectly fine

If you want a 5" over a 4", It would have to be a or 3.5" or 4" DP to a 5". I do not think you can easily stuff a 5" DP.
