Default Flowmaster 40 or 44? 3.0L

i am in a jam between the two... im going to be simply cutting out the stock exhaust and replacing it with one of these for now. ive heard the 40 series sounds awesome but not to much about the 44...
heres the links to summit where id buy them.

the 40

the 44

idk if i need to be worried or not but the reason im leaving the stock piping on is im trying to keep as much backpressure as i can. i've heard its crucial for low end torque? any input would be great.

I dont know what year you have but on my 02 there are four catalytic converters and i tried the 44 with it and it was quiet i was really disappointed. So i tried just straight pipe and i love it, its got a deep sound and is way louder than the 44 but not too loud, plus its cheaper.

I have an 01, put the 40 on. It sounds ok, thought it would be a little louder but it sounds good when you get on it

I have a 40. Its real nice, but I do regret not getting the 44. Its just not as loud as I had hoped.g

ok guys well how would a thrush welded be? they said its practically the same as a 40 series flowmaster. im really just scepticall on losing my low end torque... thats my main worry, i would like good sound with a gain or no loss in performance with whatever exhuast setup it took haha
