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.
