Here it is, the Axleback for the 2013 Subaru BRZ/Scion FR-S. We use 4" tips that fit the bumper nicely unlike the other exhausts out there with cartoon sized tips.
Our axleback has a 2.5" inlet which is larger than stock but not too large. The 2.5" main circuit then splits to two 2" pipes. Both 2" circuits terminate in 4" diameter tips that sit flush with the bumper. This makes the car look like it should have from the factory.
The weight of our axleback is 17 pounds compared to the 25 pound stock muffler.
The axleback produces almost no peak HP but fills in the valley that is typical of this new direct injected boxer 4.
We offer 3 different muffler options outlined below:
No Mufflers: This is also known as a Muffler Delete. This is louder than the other two options for obvious reasons, but still sounds good. In cabin noise is greater than that of the muffled options as well. This option is good if you want the "race car" sound with out the unfinished "race car" look and you are not planning on upgrading other portions of your exhaust. A Caveat here, if you are sensitive to noise or don't like loud exhaust, this option is not for you.
4" Mufflers: These are our hand built mufflers with 4" outer diameter and 8" length. They are center inlet, center outlet and are constructed entirely from T304L Stainless Steel right here in our facility by our crack team of fabricators. The sound of these is less than the muffler delete but greater than the 5" mufflers. This option is the best for those who like a bit of volume to their exhaust but don't want the "race car" noise and are not planning to upgrade other portions of the exhaust. This option is also suitable for those who like a loud exhaust and are planning on upgrading their downpipe or their downpipe and overpipe.
5" Mufflers: The dimensions of these hand built mufflers are 5" diameter with a body length of 8" and offset inlet/outlet. These mufflers are the best option for a nice smooth exhaust note. The tone is nice and deep with volume being mellow with stock exhaust otherwise. When you decide to upgrade to an aftermarket downpipe or overpipe/downpipe combo, this exhaust really comes alive while remaining deep and smooth sounding. This axleback even keeps the volume down at a tolerable level with our catless header.

Colored tip options are now available here at Nameless Performance! Make a serious statement by selecting one of our three new neo-chrome options including Blue exterior with gold interior, Green exterior with Gold interior, or Purple exterior with blue interior.
We get a lot of people asking what the exhaust bushings are good for. Here is your answer:
0 Bushings: This means you are using your factory rubber exhaust hanger bushings. These work fine for most people, they are very flexible and allow the exhaust to move around a lot. The tip alignment will change more with these tips than with our urethane bushings.
2 Bushings: We recommend this option for those of you who either drive your car hard on the street or race your occasionally at the track. The 2 urethane bushings you get from us should replace the two bushings in the rear of the car closest to the bumper.
4 Bushings: This is for people who race their cars often. the 4 bushings you get from us replace all 4 bushings on the axleback portion of the exhaust.
5 Bushings: For those of you who are hard core autocrossers or circuit racers. All 5 of the factory bushings are replaced with our bushings.

Bought the 5" mufflers so as to avoid the boomy raspy blatty sound that screams "racer boy". And it is perfect, for me. Good throaty sound, makes rev matching easy. Not too loud. Minimal resonance. Excellent build quality: nice welds etc.
Have had a number of aftermarket exhausts on track cars, street rides, and bikes, and would have to say this is one of the best I've had yet.

I ordered and received and installed an axelback unit with 5" mufflers. The unit arrived in good shape, 6 days after I submitted the order. Installation was easy and the fitment was perfect. Good quality, great welding, almost too pretty to put under a car....:-)
The sound is very nice, growls a bit on acceleration, but quiets down while crusing.

I spent much wasted time on forums and web sites trying to get exactly what I wanted.
The people at Nameless answered all my questions and were extremely helpful. This is a quality product and a quality organization.

I ordered a 2.5" pipe with 4" mufflers axleback for my BRZ. Installed without even jacking the car up. I was really impressed with the alignment of the tips after fidgeting around with the hangers a little. The welds were very clean as well. The only (very) small issue I had was (unless I missed it) the pipes did not come with a new gasket for the flange. Although it is a new car the gasket was a little corroded and would not be reusable after this winter for sure. I wish Nameless would have included one or at least told me that it does not come with one.

Purchased the Toyota 86 /BRZ 2.5 axle back. Received it 1 month later which included 2 days freighting to Australia. This is a very well made and designed piece of equipment that improved the performance of the vehicle immediately. The highly reported torque dip was reduced substantially . Build quality was A class and fitment took all of 20 mins. Well done to Matt @ Nameless for providing great advice and service. I'll be buying more Nameless bits as soon as I decide what i need rather than want.

Amazing product imediately out of the box you can tell its a sturdy product install isn't painless with a set of ramps or jack stands it took maybe a maximum of an hour just have to work with the hangers it sounds amazing it is loud in car because I went no mufflers but loud is what I was looking for so if you aren't looking for dramatic exhaust I highly recommend going muffled all in all highly satisfied with service communication and product

I highly suggest this exhaust. After reading forum reviews I decided the car could use a more aggressive tone and decided to give it a go. Sound is perfect for me - it growls but isn't obnoxious (2.5" with 5" mufflers). I wanted something that gave the car more character while driving but that I wouldn't feel embarrassed driving to work in, and this has worked out just right. I did notice that it was very quiet for the first day or so, but I understand this is normal for new exhausts. After a day or so it settled in very nicely.

i've had this exhaust for about a month now (no other engine or exhaust mods) and am very happy with it.
i chose it based on forum reputation, feedback (ft86club.com), youtube vids, which can be difficult not being able to hear an exhaust note in person. but, i'm very happy with the result - it provides a much deeper note than before without being too loud - just what i wanted. no highway drone at all.
install was a piece of cake. i ordered mine with two hangers, but ended up using the softer stock hangers for better vibration insulation. i have not had any problems with the tips moving/shifting with the stock hangers. there's a very slight misalignment of the tips (maybe about 1/4" to 1/2"), but my stock exhaust tips were exactly the same way, so the misalignment is due to the interface or pipes in front, not the nameless.
love the double-wall tips - another reason i chose nameless over some others.
it took slightly less than one month from the time i placed my order to when i received it - i had expected it to take a bit longer actually, knowing how busy they were, so i wasn't expecting it.
very happy with the product.

Really, nothing to add over the other reviews. Took about 40 min to fit, the majority of which was spent getting the old exhaust of the hangers. I used silicone spray, but it still takes some pushing and pulling. Fit was perfect and symmetrical. This exhaust is just what the car needed for a more finished and sporty look at the back. I was considering tips only, but for not much more outlay you can get this axle-back system.
I chose the 5" mufflers, with a pair of bushings. The sound is aggressive at first start-up, but once the idle settles, it is barely louder than stock. There's a nice snarl under heavy acceleration that reminds you the BRZ is a sports car, but no drone when cruising at freeway speeds. There is no noticeable increase in power, and the torque dip remains, but I bought this for the look and sound, not performance, so I am 100% satisfied. I'd be 110% satisfied if it came with a new gasket, as the old gasket did not come off cleanly, and in my enthusiasm to fit the system, I forgot about it anyway, and had to go back the next day.
