looking for a 3 1/2" down pipe

After purchasing a fifth wheel RV (31' outback) and towing it 1300km home I need to quiet my truck down its way too loud when pulling hard so what I want to do is put a stock size down pipe but mandrel bent with out the dimpling and reinstall the cat and turn the 4" turbo back in to a cat back So my question is where can I get a pipe like this or is there such a thing to be had and what else whould I need?
Also this was the first load I hauled with the 6.0 I must say it pulls awesome I'm very impressed I went through the Rocky's from BC to Alberta and no hill could put it under 55mph even with 35"s however the fuel millage went out the window

The OEM DP is more like 3" and sounds like you will need to swap out with someone looking to upgrade. I'll help fund the swap if you need to sell off the MBRP downpipe.

Maybe some header wrap around the DP and reinstalling the cat would be a better fix?
