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.

This Muffler set was purchased for my wife’s BRZ.
Her not wanting anything too loud or droning, I opt for the NAMELESS 86/BRZ axel back.
Can’t tell you who happy my wife & I are with the sound, just perfect.
I’m situated in Australia, so International buyers don’t worry, Packaging for the product is spot-on.
Quality, Fitment & install are perfect. Also great pricing too.

I purposely waited before doing my review on the 2.5 inch axle back system with 5 inch mufflers. I wanted some time with the system so I could understand it's weak and strong points. Overall, the system is excellent! It roars to life when you put your foot into it hard. It sounds totally awesome coming off the gas and just coasting down in gear. Revving it out as you go under an overpass produces some of the best exotic sounds ever. Cruising is quiet and comfortable, you can have a conversation or listen to the radio at normal levels with no issues. But put your foot into it and it starts to roar to life just like you want it to. I have experienced no drone with the system!
I gave it only four stars because Nameless kept me waiting too long for this brilliant exhaust system. But I forgive them, as it was worth the wait.
It's a shame, The whole system is almost too pretty to be hidden under the car.
Worth the wait and the cost. Now my FRS sounds like a true sports car. Thank you Nameless.

Installation was super easy, and the quality is unmatched. It is a bit louder than I wanted, however it sound much better than any others I have heard. I find that the ability to hear the exhaust really helps to get the most out of the car when working through the gears.

I bought the 2.5" axle back with 5" mufflers and also got the blue tips. After researching many exhausts, I decided on this one because it has a great sound and the quality is amazing. It was very easy to install and took only about 20 minutes, and the fitment was spot on and the tips were perfectly even. It has a really great sound; it's much deeper than stock and I don't find it too loud. Would highly recommend.

Ordered the 4'' Axleback for my 86 on Blackfriday. Took about a month to receive it, but was in no hurry as I rather let them take their time to make an outstanding product.
Initial startup after installation was extremely loud compared to stock oem; however, after a week or so of driving, the noise level has toned down. It is perfect setup if anyone is looking for exhaust that looks amazing and sounding better than the stock oem exhaust. There isn't performance gains from the Axleback but loving it so far.
I would definitely recommend Nameless to others!

First and foremost, the team at Nameless are amazing, specifically, I spoke to Ryan and he addressed all my concerns. Secondly, this product is made by hand and does take time to make, but well worth the wait. Once shipped and I received it, wow...do they know how to package their product. I was blown away on the care taken to package my exhaust. After inspecting it and about 20-30 minutes later, I was off and running with my new exhaust installed. The welds, quality and overall product is top notch, if not the best and I highly recommend it. The sound this exhaust produces is just perfect and really makes the Boxer engine come alive (I could fall asleep to it). I smile and very thankful for making this purchase each time I start my FR-S and each day I drive it, I know I made the right decision. Don't thing twice, as you will not regret this product...as Nameless is second to none and they know how to treat their customers! Thanks Nameless!

With my new Nameless Performance Axleback Exhaust installed on my Subaru BRZ it finally sounds as good as it goes! I have the 5" mufflers and it has a nice deep rumble at idle and the sound is impressive all through the gears and high revs. It sounds like a mythical STI version of a BRZ. No interior drone at all, just a much deeper sound than stock. The build quality was excellent and the fitment was spot on. After tightening the two bolts the tips were a factory perfect fit and the 4" tips fill the rear valance nicely. The gasket was in fine condition to use on the new install and the project can be done easily in 30 minutes. Customer service at Nameless is second to none!

I'll keep this brief, because it won't take long to say this muffler is AWESOME. My BRZ is stock otherwise.
Deep, throaty but absolutely no drone on the highway. No low RPM boominess either.
Reasonable volume at lower rpms and light throttle opening, and transforms into a glorious howl over 5k.
Build quality looks excellent, no concerns there.
Would buy again in a heartbeat.

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.
