If I was going to 4" cool duals I would just go 4" down pipe. Anytime you can go bigger on the down pipe the better.

The problem with the 4" DP is fitment. It's a pain the azz to get it in there. As far as I know there is no power diff.

I would go with the 4" for better egt's. As far as fitment, it will go in just fine, you have work it in, but it is not that hard to put on:Thumbup:

Go with the 4" dp, you will only have fitment problems if you had a 6.0 aka sick-o!! LOL

You will feel a bit of a loss in low end grunt more than likely, but the truck should move more freely at the top end. Given the mods you currently have listed, the 4" is really overkill and would more than likely be a waste of money. I'm making the power in my sig w/a 3.5" dp and no egt issues. .. of course, that's w/an H2E so it's a little different. If you gotta have it, it won't hurt. . .but i wouldn't expect to see too much from it.

If I had 3.5" on it already I wouldn't bother buying a 4" unless I was planning on some big power. I really doubt you will see any difference with it. If you really just got to have it with your duals then go for it. Just don't expect any gains.

I would suggest going with the 4" turbo back kit. The MBRP is a great kit, and as far as the fitment, you will be fine. The 4" will be better for future mods down the road as you begin adding more stuff.

Just my:2cents ,

I would just go ahead and get the whole system with the 4" DP. The fitment isnt that bad on a 7.3. I did it by myself without too many problems.
