Cutting stock exhaust?

It seems the accepted standard is a 4" straight pipe all the way back. Would it not be the same amount of flow and back pressure by cutting back the stock system, for example cutting it half way so it dumps under the truck? i already straight piped the stock 3.5" exhaust but it runs all the way back to the stock point.

you still are pushing through a 3.5 half the way, and then you have to deal with soot under and up the side of your truck.

IMO let it be. 3.5 is plenty unless you're pushing a ton of power(aka over 500hp) and dont dump it under the truck its noisy as crap. had mine that way wasnt fun.

thanks for the responses, I kinda figured this was the answer. I'm not making that kind of power nor plan on it....because I can't afford it.

stock exhaust is good for around 400HP all day long, alls your going to see with 4 and 5 is a slight drop in egts but the noise is going to increase alot, the 5" is extremely deep, i love it
