You do not want a 5" downpipe... lucky for you they dont sell them.

4" and 5" have no difference in performance, only sound. 5" will have a deeper sound to it.

I really wanted a 5" because i'm one of those people that the LOUDER the better, BUT, we just had a baby and I decided to get a 4" so it wouldn't be too loud for him...


If you don't have anything like that to worry about then go ahead with a 5"...
I have read somewhere about this topic and someone said, "most people that get a 4" later wish they would have gotten a 5"...



Me included

It's your choice though. My 4" still sounds awesome though!!!
