You probly dont need a 5 inch if your just getting a chip and other minor mods, fill out your signature and you could get some better advice.

You'll NEVER require a 5" pipe... people just get it for the sound!

I had a 5" on my 2000 f350 and loved the sound. Looked badass with the 6" tip! I still have'nt made up my mind on my new truck. May go with 4" because they are cheaper.

A 4" will flow more air than you will ever need and then some but the 5" just sounds awsome.

The mbrp 4" off road is the one that i want because it has the cat delete pipe. I found out that it has only a 3.5" downpipe. Why is that? Is that how most 4" systems are? you think it would a 4" down pipe. If anybody has info on this please let me know im bambozled haha. thanks.

Not all systems have that.I have a Bully dog 4" dual from turbo back and sounded real good. It was pricey though. But the down pipe is 4".

On alot of systems you will find 3.5 inch is way easer to install and very little difference in power then 4 inch down pipe but if your paying to have it installed go with 4inch down pipe
