Need some help where to go now

Heres what I have and looking for suggestions of where to go from here. I have 02 Ex with AEM Brute Force intake, Edge juice w/Attitude. Now I need exhaust next. I'm trying to decide whether to do MBRP 4" turbo back w/muffler, MBRP 4" turbo back w/o muffler or 5" straight from stock downpipe back (local shop will do this fairly cheap and recommended from one of my customers who is doing this). Actually MBRP and 5" straight would be almost same money but 5" straight would be installed. I'm not looking for sound just looking for lower EGT's. Actually would prefer less noise unless straight lowers EGT's more. Then I've read where Edge Juice is hard on tranny (and I can feel some hard shifting). So, any suggestions on stacking or anything else that would help that?

All that being said, here is what I'm after. I'm looking for better MPG's for daily driving and also pull 8.5'x16' large enclosed trailer with 3 Harley's in it fairly often. I'm looking for better overall performance while towing without damaging anything.

I know this kind of thing is often asked. But, each individual situation is different for everyone and I'm expecting several opinions as well. Lets hear them and see if I can sort thru it.

edge chip=paper weight, get a custom chip such as TW, PHP, Elite ect. 4in w/out muffler the best for your set up, dont need a 5in till you start putting on injectors turbos ect. also just me but I would look into at least a valve body for the trans. if the straight pipe is to loud then a muffler will not affect egt's all that much in a 4 or 5in system. always want to do turbo back for lower egt's. also get some gauges. also look into a 6.0 or simmilar trans cooler......thats all I have.
