    Too many to list now.
    Use the search function, probably dozens of these threads already in existence, I bet you'll get some good info there.

    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

    '88 3.0V6 pickup, '05 and '08 4.0V6............I never noticed a drop in power or mpg's. I had have a local do it for me since they specialize in custom exhaust so everything was welded nice and clean, not sure if that makes a difference

    I bet those were fun to clean afterwards!

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

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