Power wise, no.Good afternoon, I have been thinking about getting an exhaust for my truck. Is it worth doing? Are there any kits to stay away from or is it all personal preference?
It all depends on what you like. If you like a ricer sound, than exhaust is the thing. If not, then just do downpipes and keep factory muffler.Good afternoon, I have been thinking about getting an exhaust for my truck. Is it worth doing?

I think you have that backwards!? There is no power gained unless you are tuning for it, or running well over 500hp...I also went with the SPD resonator delete - made a noticeable performance improvement and no change in exhaust sound.
Nope - welded in. Probably 10HP, just enough to notice. Really helped with throttle tip-in and low rpm performance. I drove around with that change for several days just to get used to it before I uploaded the tune. Exhaust tone only changed somewhat on cold startup, and that is it. No change in interior resonance.I think you have that backwards!? There is no power gained unless you are tuning for it, or running well over 500hp...
I’m going to assume you clamped it in without the muffler mod - because it almost double the stock exhaust volume and changes the tone.
Would be the case on normally aspirated engines. Isn't that simple downstream of turbos.I am open to being corrected if wrong but I think I read somewhere on this forum that for a fellow not often holding near WOT a lot, 4 inch is “to big” and that 3 inch gains you more at the typical lower rpm like when just driving it on the street!?
Not a recommendation, but a 4 inch just made sense to me. And I like the low tune produced. Besides Heartthrob which uses I believe a chambered muffler, Pypes and Diamond Eye offer 4 inch straight thru systems without the raspy tone of MBRP, AFE and such. One other system interested me the Stainless Works 3 1/2 inch. KMDo you guys recommend a 4” system or 3”? I am tossing around getting heartthrob or banks.
You are correct when talking about an NA engine. Your logic does not apply with turbo'd enginesTo get a visual. Think about a river. The river flows faster in a narrow part. ( smaller exhaust) But slows down in the wider parts. (Larger exhaust) Similar to exhaust sizes. You can get too big and too small.
If you like the 4” get it.
