To Pipe...or Not to Pipe?

Hi Everyone, Im pretty new to diesel's and trucks in general. I have the 05 with the 6.0 Powerstroke and it has the Banks Monster Exhaust Turbo Back exhaust system on it. When they installed it they took out my catalyst, so I guess it's turbo-downpiped-muffler-pipe-tip. Im alittle unhappy with the lack of noise from the exhaust however Im not looking to be the MONSTER TRUCK of my neighborhood either. I am wondering if I have them remove the muffler would it be damaging in anyway to the engine or anything? and would it be loud? or obnoxious i hate my neighbor loud?

I've tried researching and watching videos, but nothing really helpful...

Thanks for any help and GO FORD!

Thanks guys! I agree it sounds great, however, is it damaging to the engine? or the turbo? I asked a guy at my firehouse, he thought it may be bad as far no more backpressure, but i thought you want to eliminate back pressure

Taking out the muffler won't damage it in anyway. You don't need to worry about back pressure.

Think about it this way.. whats the biggest restriction on your motor....? Duh the turbo itself.. lol therefore any backpressure after it doesnt help one bit..
