Exhaust causing lack in performance?

Have been thinking about puttin a new exhaust on my truck and get away from the stock but have been told that a 4" is the best that a 5" will actually make u loose power and so on. So far my truck has a edge evolution programmer which about to look at getting a bdp chip or php but just that a shift kit and adrenaline hpop and 6" lift and 35s. Just wondering really would like to go with a 5" straight pipe but wanted to get some opinions first.

Go with 5"!!!

Most people that go with 4 wish they would have bit the bullet on a 5 now... it sounds nicer!

The argument is... 5" doesn't provide enough back pressure.
Well turbo powered vehicles don't need back pressure!

Go 5", you wont loose any power compared to a 4", it'll look good with your lift and tires, most importantly it'll sound bad @#* when you get on it.

Only comments I've heard against the 5" is the drone that it generates at highway speeds.

Ok i really appreciate the opinions and thats what i was gonna do is just take my chances and im a mechanic and thats what people have told me like old timers is u have to have back pressure and as far as i know you dont on a turbo powered vehicle back pressure isnt good for a turbo. What would yal guy recomend going with beans tunes or php i hear the wait time is a while for php because it is family owned and operated but that what i like about it and was gonna go ahead and when i did get one frm php get the fu2 chip so i can change the tunes myself instead of have to send it in.
