Should be able to do 4" DP. All it does is slightly lower EGT's. I heard 30-50deg. but not sure.

Yes, a 4" will bolt right up, you may need to bend the trans dip stick a little so it does not rest on the DP but it will fit. EGT's will drop anywhere between 50-100deg. It will make it sound a lot more throaty as well.

My 4" DP went in pretty easy, getting the factory one out took longer than putting the new one in. The biggest difference I noticed is a lot deeper and louder cab noise.

i found the easy way to remove the factory pipe is the cut it at the 90 bind then loosen it at the turbo and it falls out through the bottom

Maybe on a OBS installing a 3" is, but on a superduty a 4" is a 30 minute job...
