I don't have a cat back, and I'm sure I'll be just one of many to tell you to get rid of that thing. Better sound, and better flow. Better flow = better EGTs. If you're dead set on keeping the kitty, you still want to try and go with a 4inch pipe from the turbo all the way through.

I will probably go with a 4" turbo back straight pipe. I'm just lazy as hell. I put a 5" turbo back on my 2000 7.3 and did not have fun taking off the band clamp at the top of the downpipe. What idiot at ford decided it would be better put the clamp on so that the bolt is on the back side!!?? But I did love the way it sounded.

I recently installed a MBRP 4" cat back and it seemed to lower my EGT's 50 to 100 degrees. I run about 650 degrees with the cruise set on 75 mph.
