MBRP 4 or 5" exhaust?

I just bought an '06 six ohhh and it's all stock right now. I'm looking to fix that. First it's the exhaust.

Exhaust: I'm sold on MBRP turbo back exhaust, but should I go with the 4" or 5"? Is there any major difference in sound or is it just aesthetics?
And when I replace the exhaust, I'm going put in an egr delete kit as well, while I'm in there. Any opinions on which kit is best?

Hey man, welcome to the 6.0 group! I personally recommend the 5" turbo Back MBRP Straight pipe. I have the 4" down pipe and 5" down pipe back and I love it. I couldn't be any happier. I will post a link to video of my truck if your curious about the sound.

5" straight all the way, my only warning would be if you plan on hauling or you have emissions checks you may want to consider a high flow muffler for DOT stops... if not, enjoy the whistle and bark.

I thought I read somewhere that the 6.0 needs correct exhaust back pressure for the variable turbo vanes to work right, but it didn't really matter in a fixed vane turbo. Their summary was that 4" was a good choice for the 6.0, whereas 5" dropped the pressure too much. I also read that getting the 5" down pipe in can be a pain, possibly requiring firewall revision.

I can't find where I read it, nor do I know if it was correct information, but perhaps worth some research.

The 5" down pipe can be snug and believe that people were getting better performance going with a 4" down pipe. Now as far as the exhuast after the down pip I don't know if 4" or 5 " makes a difference. I run 4" from the turbo back and don't see a need for 5"
