The 2015+ WRX & STi Catback from Nameless Performance follows a long line of exhaust R&D established by Nameless Performance over the last four years. Following closely in the footsteps of the '11-'14 WRX/STi Sedan Catback, with a number of improvements and changes to fit perfectly on your '15 WRX with the DIT engine or your '15 STi using the tried and true standard EJ series engine. In testing on the EJ series engine, this catback has shown midrange gains of +32ft lb of torque and +22hp at the wheels above and beyond a standard off-the-shelf Stage 1 tune. That standard is achieved through a number of innovative design cues that have made Nameless Performance the top name in Subaru aftermarket exhaust development and engineering.
The main functional elements of this catback exhaust are its matched flow dynamic from the 3" diameter resonated main circuit into the 2" diameter secondary circuits (the dual circuits of the rear of the exhaust). Starting from a goal of matching the flow of exhaust through the 3" section and into the 2" sections, the division of exhaust is accomplished with a larger diameter 2.25" Y section in the midpipe, which takes the position of highest friction in the catback exhaust and ensures a proper division of exhaust gas flow without inducing restriction. Many other companies go oversized on the rear circuits to accomplish this goal of keeping flow up in a divided exhaust, however, the overall midrange torque suffers and the horsepower is no higher than a system with a smaller terminal circuit diameter. Our system on the other hand, produces more torque through the midrange than most exhausts on the market, while retaining higher than average horsepower gains. The result is a catback exhaust that makes a substantial difference in the behavior of the vehicle.
The second major advantage to the 2" dual rear circuits on the exhaust is a substantial decrease in low frequency cabin noise at cruise, often referred to as 'exhaust drone.' While larger rear circuit exhausts produce low frequency tones at lower flow dynamics, resulting in a boomy sound at cruise and an overly loud raspy sound at wide open throttle, our system produces a substantial reduction in cabin resonance while retaining an aggressive tone at wide open throttle.
The system is designed using 100% T304 (low corrosion, high strength) stainless steel throughout. From the flanges to the tubing and hangers to the perforated tubing in the mufflers, all of the stainless we use is the highest grade T304. Muffler packing consists of medium density, high temperature resistant ceramic wool, ensuring long muffler life and a compact lightweight design that muffles better than many market standard mufflers that are 3-4x the size of our in-house fabricated and engineered mufflers.
All weld joints are hand TIG welded by skilled craftsmen in our shop in the Pacific Northwest. With over 40 years of experience in the welding industry, our team is comprised of fabricators who have worked in every industry from automotive to heavy industrial fabrication. They pride themselves on their work and produce results that are unparalleled in the industry. Each of the connections in the catback are attached with latch over v-band clamp assemblies where they are not connected at factory connection points. At the front, a conical flare joint with a floating flange and a proprietary 3" donut gasket connect the catback directly to a factory downpipe or an aftermarket downpipe with a connection that gives all of the compliance of the factory system and allows easy adjustment during installation. At the rear of the midpipe, factory fit flanges are used with a larger diameter bore than the factory system that can still use factory gaskets (which are larger than the factory exhaust system). Factory OEM Subaru gaskets and all hardware are included with the kit.
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.

I love the way these look on my car. The quality was spot on. Installation was a breeze using the muffler tool I purchased from you guys, and most importantly to me was the sound. It's exactly what I was looking for. My friends here me coming from blocks away. I couldn't be happier. Go Nameless!

As soon as I got my 2017 WRX I already knew that eventually I wanted to run a whole nameless setup. I finally bought the catback with the 4inch tips and muffler delete. Installation was fairly easy, though I probably used alot more wd 40 then I should've for the exhaust bushings... Like what pretty much every one else who got the muffler delete for their WRX said, don't hesitate or worry if you think it'll be too loud! I was thinking the same at first and was actually a little worried it would be too loud for my house since I park in the garage, but it's not even that loud on cold start ups. The sound is amazing an at warm idle and normal driving it's not too much louder then the stock sound, only when your gassin it or going above 3000rpm. Really the only complaints I can have about this is the wait time, it took me about 5 and a half weeks from ordering to get i, but it was Worth it. I also wished that they made the 4inch tips in neochrome but hey it doesn't change the fact that this is an amazing exhaust. Now to patiently wait to buy the nameless downpipe...

The guys at Nameless are incredibly professional and knowledgeable. Tyler was amazing! And the product itself is stellar. I'm a 40 year old professional with 2 kids, and I was concerned about my exhaust being too loud, especially with cold start ups in my neighborhood and while driving at 60mph plus. Well, I went with the 4 inch mufflers and, for me, they're too quiet. I really wish I went with the deletes. So if you're shying away from the deletes because you think they're too loud, DON'T! Once the car idles, it's super quiet. At that point it only has a low, beautiful rumble to it. So forget the mufflers, and go for the deletes. Trust me! p.s. The 3.5 inch double-wall tips fill out the cut outs perfectly.

I got the nameless catback with the 5" mufflers for my 16 WRX. Easy upgrade for the stock system. Had everyone good to go under an hour or so. I also went with the 5 new bushings from nameless. Super stiff bushings, kind of a pain to get on but worth it. Really tight setup. Only had minor problem with my torklift hidden trailer hitch on the ride. The passenger side exhaust hanger near the muffler was hitting the frame of the hitch. Had to bend an exhaust hanger just a tad but in the end, all good. Sound has significantly changed after a few hundred miles on the catback. Was a little boxy and nasally after initial install. Now it growls, cracks and pops in the best of ways. Love the exhaust, would highly recommend. Also see a very small turbo lag decrease on stock tune, (seems to have a small performance benefit that I can feel) also with a lower temperature on the exhaust temp reading from ODBII with Torque app.

I got the 5" mufflers and 4" tips, and I absolutely love the sound. The sound stays very deep and rumbling and does not get raspy at all - it's a very refined. Cold starts sound particularly amazing.
It will pop and crackle when rev-matching which I love. It is not excessive and it sounds amazing when I blip the throttle and hear the soft crackling after.
I was debating whether I should go with the 4" or 5" muffler option and I was very glad I went with the 5". I am not a fan of excessively loud cars and the 5" muffler option was the right choice for me. It is only slightly louder than stock when cruising around, and it is cool to put my foot slightly further on the gas and hear the rumble get louder.
When unpackaging the parts, I was also impressed by the quality of the welds. They are very clean and uniform.
One thing that I am confused about but is still good is that my MPG has gone from an average 17.7 MPG to 19.2 MPG. I think this is because the new exhaust is less restrictive and slightly lighter. Not totally sure why but I like it.
Another part of the purchase that I am very happy with was the customer service. Before and after my purchase, Tyler provided friendly and helpful customer service by giving me information about tip sizes, muffler options, and an order E.T.A. When I was installing the exhaust, I was confused about the installation of the donut gasket because I had never seen them before, and me being me, a clear color picture in the well layed-out installation PDF wasn't enough, so I called Nameless for more information and Tyler was there again to help me out and answer my question exactly.

So I just picked up my 2017 WRX about 3 weeks ago and I knew the first thing I was going to do was exhaust, the stock exhaust is just depressing.
I read forums, facebook posts, etc and the name that kept popping up for quality and performance was Nameless Performance. Then deciding on setup wasn't hard at all, coming from a 2015 Focus ST that was Full Bolt ons and protuned on e85, it was catless downpipe and straight piped (LOUD is an understatement!)
I wanted loud, but not obnoxious.
From the reviews, the catback with muffler delete for sound and performance was best option for this car before doing downpipe, etc.
Just had it put on yesterday and what a difference in sound. Much deeper, throaty hum at idle. Only loud for a sec until it drops idle and is warmed up. Then it almost sounds stock.
Its an exhaust that can be loud, when you want it to be, other than that, basically quite under normal driving. So those hesitating on muffler delete, thinking it will be too loud (DON'T!)
On rev matches and downshifts it will pop and crackle a little bit, not crazy but you do notice it.
The quality of the product is UNBELIEVABLE! I definitely cheaped out on my Focus ST when it came to cost just to make power.
But for the WRX the money is definitely worth the justified prices! When you see the welds on this exhaust, it's almost like GOD did it himself.
Overall, happy with the quality, product, and sound it produces. Will definitely be back when ordered downpipe and tune.
