Question Muffler or NO Muffler?

So what is better? Is it better to get an after market muffler (exhaust system) or is it better to hack the exhaust right in front of the stock muffler and add some 4" exhaust pipe straight back and out the side???

Where is the line between letting the motor breath better and having a lil' back pressure and what is best to achieve the both?

From what I have read I would say straight pipe all the way back is the happy medium.

Turbo diesel doesn't need backpressure. By eliminating the muffler you get a quicker spool up on the turbo (no backpressure) and you will lower your EGT'S maybe about 20 degrees.
I ran a system, now it is straight pipe, it isn't that loud until you open it up, plus you can really hear the turbo.
