Weclome to the site.

The 4inch turbo back exhaust will help with your egt's while your towing and all around keep the egt's lower then a stock exhaust will. I don't think you need the propane, may want to upgrade to a custom tune chip before you put money down on a propane kit.

Most intakes, and exhausts will give you more turbo noise. I am sure a vendor on here may know of an exhuast and intake that will keep your truck quiter then most 4 inch exhausts and intakes.

Most owners with these trucks like the sound of the turbo though.

All of your questions except for 2 will be answered in these forums right here.

Two things, don't use pane on your truck and sell your AFE and buy a Ford AIS to suppress the sound. It may not flow as much air but it will be an upgrade in filtration.
