Stainless may not be a bad idea in this case.

Me personally, I would run a 4" straight pipe turbo back.

A 5" will not help with performance at all. It will only make the truck louder and emphasize the deep notes from the exhaust (basically more bass).

I don't know what your emmisions inspections are like on these trucks though. If you have a cat from factory, don't you have to retain it? In that case a high flow cat is the best bet.

Brand isn't gonna matter much if you are running straight pipe since it is all just straight pipe.
Now if you were gonna get the muffler option then you might want to listen it video clips for the sound you want.

I would just buy a MBRP or something like that.

That's a great quote. You should start making t-shirts and bumper stickers!

I thought it was a great quote also but can't take credit for it. I also have no idea who actually did say say that.
