Red face Exhaust Hiss

I just finished installing a 4" turbo back delete cat. I am hearing a hiss at the 5" tip. I don't hear it anywhere else. Is this right? Also see a little white smoke that I didn't have before. Is this because of no cat? Some help would be great.

Mine does it even though I'm straight-piped. Think of it like this.....if you keep on hearing that rumble your turbo ain't actuating like it should. It's also a sign that your oil pressure has come up when the rumble quits. The rumble comes back when you :burnout ........promise

does that mean the little cut outs inside the muffler are pointing towards the back of the truck vs catching the exhaust from the front?

You point the cones to the back so the exhaust gas isn't caught in the muffler. Almost like a straight pipe, but I didn't want to mellow of a sound.
