Performance question

I have a 2010 f250 crewcab 4x4 with 3.55 gears, sparton 275 tune, dpf/cat delete, soon to be installed afe stage 2 si. My question is will I gain any power at all from removing the factory catback exhaust with something else that doesn't have a muffler ? Will it lower egts?

I have tried to look at dyno runs but haven't seen any good runs to compare the difference between the factory catback and a aftermarket on a modified truck.

Next question what is a high engine oil temp? Truck is fairly new and almost has 1000 miles. Going to switch over to synthetic when service time comes around.Thanks in advance.

as far as the exhaust, installing a 4-5" downpipe will lower egt, but the stock muffler on there is flow-through so it doesn't make much difference to remove it or leave it on the truck.
