The only time it is louder is when your relly pouring the coals to it. You wont feel any power increase but I saw an increase in mpg. While your at it you might as well get rid of the kitty as well.

it would be easir if you filled out your sig, meaning truck, and mods,
If you cut off the stock muffler, it would be alot louder than w/ the muffler, also will you be putting a larger straight pipe on in the future, and now power increase by cutting off the muffler

I should be a little louder, I dont think it will affect your power very much.
probably will drop your EGT's a little

Yep I would have gone with a 5" instead of a 4" too the deeper tone is so much better, or you could just do stacks
