Exhaust on an Excursion

I'm going to put an exhaust on my 01 Excursion I know they have 4in kits for the excursion, but I was wondering if anyone has put a 5in exhaust system on an excursion. I know that both kits have 4inch down pipes. But will a 5in kit fit on an excursion?

exhaust

Why in the world would you want to put a 5" exhaust? The 4" is sufficient & will do everything you need. I think it's overkill.

I think the 5" also made for the X. Remember the X is simply a stretch F350.

Cool exhaust

I like the sound of the 5" and would do it in a heart beat if I thought it would clear. If not for the fuel tank, you have to watch out for the shock. You can move the lower mount over if this is a problem.

5" on the Ex

I have a 5" exhaust on my Excursion, 7.3. I ordered it from RPM Outlet online. When I recieved the package, the box was torn open. I e-mailed the vendor for instructions because it just didn't look right. They advised me that they did not make a 5" kit for my vehicle. So why did they send it to me? The kit I received was for a pick-up. Anyway, I called up a buddy of mine and he said we could make it fit and we did. We had to move the right rear shock over about a 1/2", repositioned the muffler mount and totally redesign the tail pipe to wrap around the gas tank and still exit out the stock location. It looks really cool and sounds deep.
My only issue was a complete loss of torque and a drop in gas mileage. With the exhaust installed it forced me to get some "electronic boosters" to pick the torque and mileage back up. Was it worth it? I think so.
If I had to do it again, I would have bought a stainless 4"...maybe.

has anyone dumped thetailpipe before the rear tires??...i really havemy heart set on duals, but imunsure if the exhuast smell, and fumes will be a problem due to the rear door being open alot with the kids. The other option i have found is that if the truck was lifted slightly, duals will fit, however a sheild should be fabricated, and brake line etc, be re-routed/moved...may not be worth it though just for duals, but im just trying to weigh my options

I think i've decided to get a 4in turbo back exhuast with a muffler, I should expect to get more power right and better gas mileage if I keep my foot of the pedal? Because Olepsdex said after installing his 5in kit that he lost torque and gas mileage. Why would that be?
