A bigger tip is pretty much just for looks, it won't make it louder.

Did you get 4" or 5" pipe? 5" has a deeper sound to it naturally than the 4" does and the 03 turbo has a better whistle to it also.

That'll work. Idk what it'll sound like though with the frequent changes in pipe diameter.

You can find plenty of good kits, 4" or 5", and pretty cheap too. I was just asking about a Diamond Eye kit yesterday I had found online. 5" turbo back straight pipe for about $350. There are good 4" kits for around $300-ish too. If I remember correctly I thought I had seen someone post on a different thread that they saw a 4" kit for about $249, but I don't remember where.

Only the early 04 has the 03 turbo. Half way through the year Ford changed it. If you have it cutting out the cat and muffler would make it a bit louder but there would also be a resonator before the cat right after the downpipe starts to bend. It looks like a smaller cat. That would have to come off too but itss not as easy if your not doing a while exhaust because itss wrapped in insulation and itss also part of the downpipe.
