6.0L Exhaust question

Thanks for taking the time to read this. I have owned my 2004 6.0L for a year now coming from gas engines. My question is. I love my Diesel and will own nothing else, I have decided to do some modifications to increase power for pulling and drivability. The first thing I am going to do is Turbo-Back exhaust. If I understand this right Diesels do not need back pressure to perform well. So if this is the case If I go with 5" instead of 4" and I do not plan to exceed around 400H.P. Is this a smart idea. Or would my truck perform better with 4" exhaust. ONE more question if you guy's don't mind. Does SS disipate heat better that aluminized. In other words is there any benifit besides apperanse to use SS pipe.

Thanks again Ya'll

Bryan

no need what so ever to go with a 5 inch system unless your going to shoot for big numbers. 4 is plenty. talk to farmboydiesel on here he has budget systems rock. also other then looks the SS system should last longer.

Thanks for the input. It sound like MBPR'S Turbo Back 4" SS system will work of my application.

One more quick question, I am going to do the new system in Feb, But for right now I was thinking about pulling the CAT drilling through it with a hole saw and putting back on. Tell me what you think of that. Is it a waste of time, Is it a backward hillbilly thing to do. I am trying to get a bit more punch with zero dollars spent. Or do you think a muffler cut out pipe would be a better idea for 56.00. To get a little more power.
Any input is greatly appreciated.

Some guys have gutted the Cat before, others just go and buy a piece to put in place of it. I bought a piece to put in place of my Cat and another to put in place of the muffler, It makes the truck sound like a Jet waiting for takeoff. Its only about $100 extra for the 2 pipes.
