Stumped on Exhaust

Hey guys, I had been thinkin about putting a stack on my truck however I am starting to lean away from this. So I am going to put some other type of exhaust on it. I like loud, but i couldnt cut the hole in my bed. So what would be louder, 4"-5" straight pipe or 4" duals straight piped? Or anyone else have any other idea's about how I can run an exhaust and have it good and loud. FYI- I'm not into dumpin it in front of the rear wheel or havin it cut off underneath.

Id love to go stright pipe on mine, too bad CA requires a MUFFLER on my 00 F250.. ridiculous. Cant believe that CA has so many damn emmissions regulations n what not. Especially trucks that are almost 10yrs plus old! Mines a '00. I think i should be out of the whole smoggin group crap.

I wouldn't know anything about duals, But 5" straight pipe is what I have. That sucker straight opens up and roars when I get on it. But highway speeds its REALLY quiet, atleast in the cab lol. If you roll down the windows you can hear a rumble coming out of it. If you want loud though, go with a 5" straight pipe. I wasn't disappointed thats for sure

Im just south of San Francisco. As far as I know, you just need the CAT in place. I dont think the muffler effects smog. As far as I know, straight pipes don't matter just so long as you keep your CAT. My truck came without it so I lucked out. Just ask a local smog tech if you can straight pipe it. A lot don't care if theres a muffler or not. Never hurts to ask!
