which exhaust should i order?

I plan on ordering a full turbo back kit this evening. My truck is bone stock except for the ts chip and intake I am putting on tomorrow. should I go for the 4 inch or 5 inch? I really want a five but is that too large for back pressure reasons or is that just someone who doesn't know what they are saying?
its a 97

Some who don't know what they are saying, order the 5" kit, only issue I've heard with those kits is the spare tire being to close

the least amount of back pressure the better. The downpipe is only 3" so whatever you put on there is mostly for sound only but there are a lot of bends so who knows maybe bigger is better.. I think others had a 5" and could still have their spare mounted. Might want confirmation on that though. Some run it in front of the rear tire to avoid the spare tire issue but then they have a chronic dirty rear wheel.
