4" to 5"

I'm thinking about going from a 4" to a 5". I was wondering whats the positives and negatives about this switch. And also am curious of how much I could get for my used less than a year old 4". I appreciate the help!

I'm assuming your talking about exhaust. There really isn't a huge benefit going to 5 inch over 4. It might be a little louder. I went with 4 when I got mine and wish I had gone 5 just for shear volume, plus it just plain looks cooler!

As far as worth, not sure what to tell ya there, might want to search the interweb and see if you can get an idea on used exhaust price.

Positive - sounds cooler
Negative- cost money and only thing it does is change the sound.

if you are looking for performance, you wont get anymore with a 5in exhaust.

Yea I figured it would have a deeper tone to it. I wasn't sure if it would help with EGT's or anything like that.

What is the difference in sound between 4" and 5" exhaust? Is it a different tone, or is one just louder than the other? What about if a muffler is added to both sizes, how does that effect their sound (dont say it gets quieter!)?
