exhaust question

Alright fellas..I have a question..I have a 04 6.0 that is strait piped (not the famous 03 scream tho, i wish) with cat-delete and I just have the factory 3.5" pipe....If I get a 4" system with or without a muffler what difference will I be able to notice?? sound quality and performance wise? What do yall think?? Is it really worth the money??

Lower EGT's, deeper tone, and a little more power it should be a noticeable diff and if your planing on running any High HP tunes it would be a good idea the 4 inch will lower exhaust temps 200 degree's or more.

Looking for 05-07 front end with Harley Lights

I don't know that it will be that much louder but the 5 inch is definately deeper sounding

rumor has it, the 5" has a deeper tone to it. i just put silverline duals on (love em by the way) 3.5" DP to 4", no cat w/ muffler. actually has less drone than stock, as quiet as stock on the highway cruising, but screams like a mofo and sounds like a big block heavy on the throttle!! oh yeah, and even got to test the straight pipe theory, when i brought it to a shop with only the downpipe and next section on. loud and made the floor rumble a little
