I have a 4" downpipe, but it goes to 3" at the front sway bar. it looks like theres enough room for 4" all the way through, but just barely. I realize i know nothing about your setup, but I am going to guess 4" is overkill. Shouldn't be really, I'm planning to push 400-4500whp. . Sounds like it mig...
