Agreed, don't go with the 50 unless you want less sound than stock IMHO. Never thought about the 10

Yeah I haven't heard much about the 10. Does anyone have one on a v6 that could provide some info? Maybe even a video?

You're right albeit a small one, but the op wants the sound to match the look. The 40 and 44 sound pretty good, the 10 will be even louder. All depends on how far you want to go with it. I've read that a lot of guys like the magnaflow, I'm partial to flowmaster myself but still curios to see what kolak told him.

Do you know if getting rid of the resonator will make the sound better/louder?

Yeah I think the 10 will be too loud. But kolak told me to go with the 50 because the 40 has too much midrange and will probably sound ricey. That's why I said before I'm probably going with the 50. But now I'm very undecided lol

I would personally go with Kolak's recommendation. He helped me pick mine out and I trust his word. He won't steer you wrong!

Just another input here, I would have to add in that being a V6, anything more open than the 50 just wouldn't sound right. I have a buddy with a V6 Xterra who put a 10 on his (after I advised him not to do it) he hated the sound and ended up having his stock muffler put back on (also, ask to have your stock one back just in case you don't like the sound, you can always revert back to that). I have been around the GM F-body scene for a while, I have heard some of the 3.8l camaro and firebirds with 40's and they didn't sound right. As advised, I will say the 50 as well. For a v6, get something that will be slightly louder than stock. It will give you a deeper tone without screaming Honda. I had a 2003 monte Carlo SS, 3.8l with a 50 and it sounded great IMO. You should be able to find a shop around you who will weld it up for a decent price, I would also leave on the resonator to start off with, drive it for a few weeks to see how you like it and if you think it could stand to be louder have it removed. Just keep that as well.... just in case ya know. Its to bad we are on opposite sides, I'd weld it up for ya. Anyways, I hope that you enjoy what you get and your jeep sounds like it's going to be pretty damn nice as well!

Thanks for the input. At this point I've heard a lot of advice and I don't know what direction to go in. Also my dad is a mechanic with his own shop so any installation will done by him and my myself.

Well that definitely makes things easier, It's kinda hard to determine the sound from advise and YouTube videos. Unless you had the 10 of the exact same vehicle, each with a different exhaust, it's a bit of trial and error. While there are different contributing factors to the sound output, you can kind of base a general idea off of different vehicles with a similar size motor. At least you have access to the tools needed, if you're unhappy with the sound a swap out would be easy and fairly quick. Also on a plus side, you could sell off one if you decide it's not for you.
