In my experience, a V6 will always sound different than a V8.

It's my opinion that a V6 sounds better running through a healthy single exhaust than duals.

It`ll always sound like a V6 regardless. Duals with a X pipe and turbo mufflers deep tone tends to cover some of it up, and at idle it`ll sound just like a V8, but off idle it`s impossible to get rid of the V6 sound. Another thing you can do is have dual pipes ran into a 2 into 1 splitter right at the muffler, use a Dynomax super turbo muffler, then run a single pipe out. I tried a stock muffler on my V6, and it would go "wooden! wooden!" then I had a flowmaster installed with dual pipes into the splitter with another splitter with dual pipes out of the rear, it sounded like a swarm of angry bee`s. I had the flowmaster removed and had a thrush turbo muffler installed. At idle you can`t tell it`s a V6, it has a nice deep tone to it, but off idle it`s dead obvious it`s a V6. My engine has a performance cam and exhaust porting, no matter, still has that dreaded V6 sound.

It is a v10, guys . You will never get the V8 thump out of a V10. The cylinder balance is totally different. An X pipe with glass pack resonators followed by a good quality muffler, such as the aerochamber or magnaflow ect., will kill some of the drone that a V10 produces and still give a nice performance sound. But it will never sound remotely like a V8.

A cam won't do it, either. But why mess with the SRT/10 engine? It is already north of 500 HP stock.

Every V10 I`ve ever heard sounds completely awful. Worse than a V6.
First time I ever heard a Viper at the cruise in one night I was like "gez, to look that good and pay that kind of cash it would have to sound better than that"

Completely off topic but I watched an SRT-10 with a supercharger do a huge burnout in the waterbox at the track last summer and before he was finished the engine threw the blower belt right into the radiator. That's what he gets for showing off I suppose...

I think a little larger tailpipe, with some Borlas or one of the above mentioned mufflers, along with an H or X pipe, will make about all the difference you could hope to accomplish.
The V10s just have a raspy popping sound that will never really sound like a V8, , but could sound pretty decent in their own right,

thanks for all the tips, yea it does sound like a v6 wich i find anoying its more powerfull although u can modify a v6 alot more, a cammed exhaust with a little over lap seedm to have given me a bit of a v8 throaty chug but thats only at idle as soon as i start and give it gas it sounds more like a ricer, atm it has a stock muffler i was going for the "look stock" aproach but like totaly not, so ive cammed the exhaust just a tad um so yea i might have to modify the stock muffler tinker around with that, any sujjestions wto what to do in altering it, and i was intrested in the splitters is tht like two pipes and feed into the 1 pipe (stock muffler) or am i wrong there, glass pack tht has been mentioned to me before and ill shall look that up think it was called a smithys glasspack, also give it a lil more over lap not too muhc maybe a bit less dont want to sacrafise top end or start off, atm it has long tuber headers running into a 3" cat wich runs into dereiters, and into stocks i was think flowmaster but thts been done to death may try another type like what u guys have sujested, also has jsc automatic tail gate and jsc electric cutouts.
