This is our track pipe for the 2008+ STI and 2011+ WRX Hatch Back. The intent behind this is to provide the lightest option available for an axleback. We include a gasket that combines with the stock gasket to adapt this 3" axleback to the stock midpipe.
This race pipe offers maximum weight savings and a considerable volume increase as well.
*NEW* We now offer the track pipe with one of our 4" Double wall tips.

No new info to add, just confirming what others are saying.
Install is very quick, all hardware and gaskets provided.
Pipe does stick out well past the bumper finishers, looks alright but I'll probably trim it in the future
RUMBLE! Amazing sound, much louder than stock (as in you can actually hear it), but not obnoxious. Cold starts are pretty loud. Sitting at a constant rpm on the highway there is a tiny amount of drone. Nice random pops and crackle on decel/gear change every once in a while. Not a ricer fartcan, very mature, aggressive rumble. I really can't believe Subaru would cover up the sound in stock form.
A good 30lbs weight savings.
My butt dyno says it revs/boosts a hair quicker.
The only negative is how long it takes to receive. I got mine like 3 weeks after ordering. Worth the wait, just annoying.

Great sounding for a great price bought as temporay exhaust for my 13 hatch did take awhile to get it but i am very satisfied after the wait i am hoping to order more through Nameless Performance in the future!!!

I ordered my track pipe and was emailed on every step of the manufacturing and shipping of the product. I got it in less than a week and it was very well packaged. The first thing I noticed was the craftsmanship, it was incredible. I installed the pipe with the supplied hardware and gasket and it fit perfect. I absolutely love the sound it makes as well. It is the only mod to the exhaust for now and the sound is low and very mature. Highly recommend this to anyone.

This is a quality piece because of the attention to welding. I bought the non double-piped tip and I'm digging how raw it looks. It looks subtle and sounds awesome - not too abnoxious. There's nice pops and slight cracks as you let off and as the revs go down.

A great tone with no rattle. Really gives my car an awesome rumble! I feel the exhaust flows much more freely! Feels like a power gain from the restrictive stock muffler! Awesome temporary set up before I purchase the dual tip straight pipe from Nameless!

Sounds amazing, excellent weight reduction. It is a bit too long, sticks out further than I would like but I'll trim it off with a bandsaw. Perfect quality of craftsmanship.

On my 2012 WRX Hatch I had been using the Nameless 5" muffled axleback for the past couple years. That exhaust had a very deep tone with a LOT of drone at really any RPM below 4K. The tone was nice overall, and it had nice pops and rumble but the wife/kid didn't approve of the drone and really it was drowning out conversations in the car and giving people headaches.
A few weeks ago I decided to bite on this track pipe and wow, what a difference! NO drone/boominess at all. The tone is not as deep, but it is more of a rally subaru tone now. Surprising to me since there is no muffler, its barely louder than stock under 4K rpm and much more quiet than the 5" axleback. This is not a "head turner" pipe, its a 100% no drone, get your subaru boxer sound when you floor it exhaust option. I no longer feel like I need to put the clutch in when driving past the police. Part of me misses the 5" axleback for its volume and deepness and its random noises, but not the drone.
Installing this was a b!7**. The bolts holding the nameless axleback on were toast after 3 years. No socket fit the rusted rounded over bolts and no amount of penetrating oil would help. After many attempts of removal, and even attempting to cut the heads off in the limited space I ended going for help which required a cutting torch. The person who did this for me suggested it might be the stainless steel axleback material reacting with other metals (bolts) and accelerating corrosion that made removal difficult.
The nameless rep I ordered the exhaust from (the double walled wasnt in stock) down sold me on the bolts/gasket kit, so I had to goto HD and find similar bolts (couldn't get stainless locally) once I realized how bad mine were. Also my order was missing the included gasket which meant another wait for delivery. The stock gasket was gone after this removal process. The call to Nameless was quick to get that sorted out.
5 star product in my opinion, although the price with shipping was high compared to other nameless products for the amount of material/welds/R&D for this. Would including 2 nuts/bolts be that expensive?

I've had the pipe on 2014 WRX hatch for about a month, Pros - sound is deep and rumbly, quality craftsmanship, can actually hear exhaust now when rev matching, gasket included. Cons - startup is loud, shipping was pricey, hardware was not included (luckily I bought hardware, I had to grind my bolts off, story of my life in VT). Pipe also sticks out 2-3" as others have mentioned. Not sure if that's a pro or con. Wife hates it, I love it.
There's honestly not much drone with the window and rear seats up. With the window down, rumble fills the cabin, put the seats down for boomier acceleration. Certain frequencies around 2400 & 3300 boom with the windows down, which adds to the awesomeness. Great thing is I can swap on the old muffler when backed up on ramps to quiet her down, which I might for a while. It's attention grabbing and not in a great way (mostly male teenagers) and I am officially a moron per Jeremy Clarkson. But it is a hoot, quiets up the annoying squeaks and rattles, makes for an entertaining commute and most importantly- is bolt on! Thanks Nameless. Well done.
