 Product Description

We are proud to offer our axleback exhaust for the 2008+ Subaru WRX STi Hatchback/5 Door and the 2011+ Subaru WRX Hatchback/5 Door. Our goal with this project was to develop a high flowing, low-drone design when combined with a full TurboBack Exhaust.

The result was a 3" into dual 2.25" axleback featuring quad double wall staggered tips, all stainless TIG welded construction that is Handbuilt to Order in America. This design also has the benefit of perfectly even flow from the right to left as well as out of each of the four tips. No biased flow here like you may find on muffler designs that use a baffled internal resonance chamber.

Each axleback comes complete with a new hardware kit for installation.

For comparison purposes we will use a scale of 1-10 for volume, 1 being stock and 10 being no mufflers.

Muffler Options:

  • No Mufflers: Finally, the sound of the Sedan Muffler Delete for the hatch! We have had people banging down our door for this since we released the original muffler delete for the sedan. This is a 10 on the scale where stock = 0.

  • 4" Mufflers: This is our new design that uses our in-house mufflers. We build each of these mufflers by hand here in our shop with our usual attention to detail. This "Louder" version uses 2 mufflers that measure 6" long and 4" outer diameter. Despite their small size, these mufflers are extremely effective. The 4" mufflers are louder than the 5" mufflers. This is about a 7 on the scale where stock = 0.

  • 5" Mufflers: This is our new design that uses our in-house mufflers. We build each of these mufflers by hand here in our shop with our usual attention to detail. This "Less Quiet" version uses 2 mufflers that measure 6" long and 5" outer diameter. Despite their small size, these mufflers are extremely effective. This is about a 5 on the scale where stock = 0.

Please keep in mind that we only trust extremely skilled craftsmen to build your parts. Qualified welders who are able to meet our standards in both fit and finish are extremely hard to find and as a result are very expensive. The end result is the highest quality, most functional product that is also a work of art worthy of a gallery.

Here are some videos on our blog of the version that uses the magnaflow muffler: GR Hatch AxleBack Exhaust Video

We include a gasket that combines with the stock gasket to adapt this 3" axleback to the stock midpipe. 

Finally, here are the Beta Test Notes written up by the local GR hatch owner who ran our prototype testing.

Recommended Add-Ons:

Urethane Exhaust Hanger Bushings

Our urethane bushings hold your exhaust in place better that the factory rubber bushings and are highly recommended if you race your car or enjoy spirited driving. During hard cornering the exhaust "wags" left to right which sometimes causes the tips to touch the bumper. When this happens there is a chance your bumper can be damaged. The best way to avoid this is to use our urethane exhaust bushings to hold the exhaust in place.

  • 2 Bushings: Replace the two bushings at the rear of the car closest to the bumper. Recommend for those who either drive hard on the street or race occasionally at the track.

  • 4 Bushings: Replace all 4 rubber bushings on the axleback portion of the exhaust. Recommended for people who race their cars often.

  • 5 Bushings: Replace all 5 of the factory rubber bushings from the midpipe back. Recommended for those who are hard core autocrossers or circuit racers.

  1. Awesome!!!!

    Posted by on

    I had been kicking around what exhaust i wanted for a while. I'm very happy with my purchase. The sound is great and the tips look awesome!

  2. That sound though!

    Posted by on

    This is a work of art. The exhaust looks beautiful and with the 4" tips it completes the look! The sound is phenomenal although very loud. Highly recommended if you want a loud, beautiful exhaust.

  3. The Minute I got it Installed ...

    Posted by on

    Unbelievable exhaust. The sound is perfect! Rumble is beautiful, doesn't drone, and it makes my subie much more enjoyable to drive. I would recommend this exhaust to anyone who is looking to invest. You're getting high quality sounds and performance. The only downfall is that my MPG has gone down a bit both local and highway, but other than that, I have no other complaints.

  4. 4in muffers and tips, double wall staggered on '13 WRX Hatch

    Posted by on

    build quality seems to be a 9.5/10. very minor blemish on the edge of 1 tip...but its virtually unnoticeable

    the sound is amazing, having installed this from a muffler delete i would agree with their loudness scale in their description. you couldn't call it quiet. still gets kinda droney on the highway but not too bad. conversely, still sounds awesome cruising and especially if you get on it, has great rumble and pops...you can be loud if you want to be. this is the sweet spot for me. no regrets about the 4inch muffler choice!

    My 1 and only complaint is that even when im fully on the hangars and correctly installed, the tips extend 1-2" beyond the rear bumper. This is personal preference but I think they'd look better sitting flush with the rear plastic. I may look into ways to handle that on my own, but otherwise i love the look

    all in all, i would not hesitate to recommend nameless to a friend!

  5. Amazing exhaust

    Posted by on

    I purchased the axleback with no mufflers and 4 inch double wall tips.
    First thing that has to be addressed is the wait time. It does take a little patience for the time for nameless build and ship the exhaust to you. It took about 2 months for me.
    But it is well worth the wait. The build quality is perfect. It looks amazing and once on the wrx, the back end of the car looks amazing (especially with the 4 inch tips in my opinion)
    At idle the muffler delete is very quiet and cruising around gives you that amazing rumble. Once you really get on it, it screams with an amazing sound.
    I honestly believe I made the right decision buying this exhaust it is exactly what I wanted and I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for amazing sound.
    Also the customer support at Nameless is the best one out there.

  6. 4" quad non staggered double walls FTW exceeded expectations Made in USA

    I could not be happier with my nameless exhaust! The wait was worth every second. I agonized and researched all of the top names for WRX aftermarket exhausts and I am glad I chose Nameless. Everything from the deep tone of my exhaust to the top notch welding and customer service I recieved made this purchase something I will recommend to anyone looking for high quality Subaru exhaust options. Thank you Nameless I will be back to purchase more from you for sure!

  7. Best wrx exhaust.

    Posted by on

    Bought the quad 4" double wall with muffler delete. I gotta say, it sounds amazing. My sti should have come factory with those tips and sound. Killer combination right there. I get nothing but compliments everywhere I go. This gives you that deep rumble that everyone is looking for. Drone is not at all an issue. The exhaust is a pleasure to hear. Quiet when you need it to be and screams when pushed. I'm addicted to the sound and want it just a little louder. Don't be scared... BUY THE DELETE.

  8. Awesome sounding and great looking exhaust

    Posted by on

    I got the 5" mufflers and 3.5" dual walled tips on my 2014 wrx hatchback, and I couldn't be happier. Its a loud exhaust, but not so loud that I will be annoying the neighbors if I am careful.

    I was worried that these would be too quiet and I wouldn't be able to hear the exhaust in my car, but I am happy to report that its is audible without being annoying. When accelerating from a stop light it fills the car with the awesome boxer rumble, but when cruising on the interstate its just a little louder than the road noise, which is just what I was hoping for.

    If you want a nice sounding and loud exhaust without being too concerned about waking neighbors, I think the 5" mufflers fit that need. I only worry about my apartment neighbors on a cold start at odd hours, as it can be pretty loud on a cold start. Its pretty easy to keep the volume down though if you just leave right after starting the car and keep the revs low.
