I ran the Super 44 and it sounded good but it was loud inside and out. Lots of drone too but I had it dumped under the bed.

Go magnaflow. Nice tone outside, not quiet, but not annoyingly loud, and has virtually no drone inside the cab.

I have the regular 40, cat back with 2.5in pipe. single out and hidden.

It's loud above 3000 rpm, and below 2400 a bit. Between 2500-3000 it is the perfect sound.

i love mine. I think is sounds real good for a v6. besides a v6 is going to sound like a v6 no matter what. you can idle your way around the parking lot and make people think you have a v8 but in the end once you get on it... its a v6 lol.

I had a 40 series with 2.5 single in/out on my 93 3.0L. It had nasty cabin noise and gurgled on deceleration when I had it dumped under the bed. When I went to the "lightning style" side exit with dual tips it fixed both problems, and the sound was about as good as I can imagine a v6 sounding.

That has nothing to do with the muffler, though some mufflers may make you more able to hear it.

Personally I like that sound, even though it doesn't belong on a truck. lol

But honestly, Flowmaster is a maze of powerloss and really only sounds good on a v8 and even still I think there are better sounding mufflers for v8's.
