Magnaflow.
Flowmaster baffles tend to choke engines. They sound nice, but rob power.

a friend of mine running a super 44 and a K&N "cold air" intake gets worse mileage than me on smaller AT tires, while I'm lifted on mud terrains

I bet those were fun to clean afterwards!

Honestly, that's a great, moderate yet beefy sound coming out of that Taco. Props!

Straight pipe...? That's always louder. And ricier. But louder.

It depends on what you want it to sound like when you rob your engine of horsepower.
