I have 5" with muffler and no cat. I like it but wish it was a little louder. If I had it to do over again I would do 5" straight pipe. Also 3.5" Down Pipe MAX. My 4" downpipe causes a rattle in my dash at certain RPM.

I have a 4" down-pipe with 4" to behind the rear tire with a 4" glasspack installed backwords. It is a silverline system. It is quiet. I would buy a 5" system if I were to do it again.

I may be wrong, but I think it would be better to get behind the tire, and farther away from it. My brothers stock exhaust on his 95 put out enough heat to blue the chrome bumper after it got "misaligned" a little. That much heat might cause a prolblem with the ruber while your going down the high way.
