 Product Description

Our popular dual axleback design is finally available for the 2014-2018 Forester XT!

Designed specifically for the 2014-2018 Subaru Forester XT with the 2.0l DIT, the Nameless Performance Axleback Exhaust is a direct factory fit to the OEM midpipe at the Y. Removing the two factory 13.5lb mufflers in lieu of a pair of mandrel bent, TIG welded, T304 stainless steel pipes.

Factory fit laser cut flanges and 2″ dual piping has equivalent cross sectional area of a 2.85″ straight pipe, providing excellent breathing characteristics for high end horsepower as well as retaining low end torque.

Fits 2014-2018 Forester XT ONLY, and includes a new hardware kit for installation.


Muffler Options:

  • Muffler Delete: The loudest option. Removes the mufflers entirely. Has a full range of tone featuring highs, mids, lows. On its own, the muffler delete with a stock midpipe and downpipe is similar to most catback exhausts in terms of sound level.
  • 5" Mufflers: Our most quiet option. Perfect for those looking for a subtle upgrade. The mufflers cancel more of the highs and midrange tones leaving a deep tone that is quieter than most catback exhausts on the market at cruise and idle, but still has a nice bark at wide open throttle.


  • NEW: 4" In-House TIG Welded Single Wall Tips

Installation Instructions:

Installation Guide - Axleback/Catback/Midpipe

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.

    Didn't know what to expect on sound.
    It had just the right amount .

  2. Love the Deletes on '16 FXT !!!!!!

    Super happy customer here. First off, the customer service helped me with a few basic questions and were very helpful on the chat feature. I was concerned about having too loud of an exhaust as I live pretty close to my neighbors. I am not one to LOVE super loud exhausts but I did want something noticeable. Note: everything else under my hood is completely stock. They lead me towards the Deletes stating the 5 inch mufflers sound good, but aren't too noticeable. So, I snagged the Deletes after the chat.

    I received my package in a super timely fashion. The package contained plenty of padding so I was super happy to see that. The new exhaust looked great. Great welds and craftsmanship. I started up the car with the original exhaust for a comparison after installing the new ones. After about a 45 minute easy installation everything was squared up and ready to go. The sound is tough to hear in videos but it sounds greattttttt!!!! Videos don't work unless you have a solid mic and headset. These are definitely not annoying and definitely not close to stock sounding. A pretty nice deep tone. You will not be the car that scares people haha.

    If you're on the fence about picking the 5" vs Deletes, I would not hesitate to tell you to snag the Deletes if you want something noticeable but not annoying. You will be happy. Keep up the great work Nameless. 10/10 happy guy over here!!!

    I've had this muffler delete on my 18 FXT for over a month now and so far loving it. Installation was easy, the tricky part was to align so both sides look the same. Nice growl at low rpms. Shipping was prompt, great service overall. Thank you, Nameless!

  4. Pure quality

    This was the first mod that I added to the 2018 XT. The XT is my wife’s daily, I was hesitant at first I did not want it to be to loud, after installing the axle back muffler deletes the wife said it wasn’t loud enough lol. I can not get over the quality of work that is put into this product. I am more than happy with this exhaust choice.

  5. Excellent quality

    First upgrade for my new Forester XT. Sounded great and added a slight aggressive tone to acceleration and warm up. Although everyone has their own tastes, I just needed more, so I got the midpipe and holy crap it’s perfect. I highly recommend the muffler delete and midpipe together, loud enough to put a fat grin on your face, and quiet enough to not wake up the neighborhood in the morning.

  6. A quick upgrade to make it sound like an actual car.

    Installation took no time at all, looks good, and it sounds much better than stock. 5/7 would order, again. A quick clip:


  7. Amazing product by amazing company!

    extremely easy install, huge difference to exhaust tone. Would recommend to pair it with a midpipe as well. Great price, great product and received quickly.

  8. Great sound and quality!

    Crazy quick install on my 2017 Forester XT Came with all necessary hardware to bolt right on to my factory mid pipe. I recently upgraded my mid pipe to a 2015 WRX STI midpipe and the fitment was not an issue. Sounded great with the stock midpipe and resonator and even better with the upgraded midpipe. Great quality at a great price. Next up for me is the Bypass valve when I can afford it. Cant complain about straight bolt on/no tune.
