Default Good or bad?

I recently purchased an 03 Ram QC 4x4 with the 5.7 an 90000 miles on it. I have more plans than money right now but I have a question about the muffler and tailpipe. I have what I assume it the stock muffler but it looks like the PO had modified the exit into a 4" pipe. The truck is pretty fast when rolling but on launch, it doesnt seem all there. Could I not have enough back pressure? I am leaving for work but will post pics when I get home.

Possibly, sometimes going too big on the exhaust can cause a slight lose in low end torque.
