What year is youre truck and what are youre plans.
if you have more HP in the future you want a 4" turbo back. If it is just sound straight pipe.

ive got a 2005 F250, no plans for huge power, maybe a slight tune, but like i said nothing extreme, maybe an intake after this.

I agree, I have a short video of my 04 straight piped with 3.5 pipe dumped at the rear door, I love it and cost-ed me zero.

If you want the video just let me know

I would suggest not spending money on an intake, The stock box is great up to about 450 H.P. Spend your money elsewhere.

Just some friendly input

You should get a 4" turbo back system. You will never need any bigger. There are a lot of advantages to a system. A lot of people say maybe alittle tune maybe an intake well withe the 4" when the bug bites you will be ready.

I would run 3.5 pipe until I hit 500 H.p. Other than that your only gain is, As you said great sound, plus a little lower EGT's under load.
