another dumb exhaust question

I had a buddy of mine tell me that if you run a 5" straight pipe on an all stock truck(2007 f-250 6.0L psd) that it would run like crap. Is this true I was lead to believe that after the turbo the bigger the better, that you wanted zero back presure.

Stock 6.0's do need some backpressure. Some Straight piped stock 6.0s will set a CEL some wont.

From what i've heard and read, a 5" will only benifit if your truck is makin' over 500hp. Otherwise, a stock truck won't run quite as well as a 4" exhaust.

3.5 to 4 in. is approx. a 15% increase in flow. So 4 to 5 in. would be around 30% increase in flow if my math is right? A stock motor does not need a 30% increase in flow. 4 in. is more than enough. Just get a 6 inch tip that'll fit a 4 inch pipe man.
