We are proud to offer our axleback exhaust for the 2008+ Subaru WRX STi Hatchback/5 Door and the 2011+ Subaru WRX Hatchback/5 Door. Our goal with this project was to develop a high flowing, low-drone design when combined with a full TurboBack Exhaust.
The result was a 3" into dual 2.25" axleback featuring quad double wall staggered tips, all stainless TIG welded construction that is Handbuilt to Order in America. This design also has the benefit of perfectly even flow from the right to left as well as out of each of the four tips. No biased flow here like you may find on muffler designs that use a baffled internal resonance chamber.
Each axleback comes complete with a new hardware kit for installation.

For comparison purposes we will use a scale of 1-10 for volume, 1 being stock and 10 being no mufflers.
Please keep in mind that we only trust extremely skilled craftsmen to build your parts. Qualified welders who are able to meet our standards in both fit and finish are extremely hard to find and as a result are very expensive. The end result is the highest quality, most functional product that is also a work of art worthy of a gallery.
Here are some videos on our blog of the version that uses the magnaflow muffler: GR Hatch AxleBack Exhaust Video
We include a gasket that combines with the stock gasket to adapt this 3" axleback to the stock midpipe.
Finally, here are the Beta Test Notes written up by the local GR hatch owner who ran our prototype testing.

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.

Well, I had to wait a while after ordering to get it, but it was worth the wait. Going to try and not sound like a broken record, but the welds on this are beautiful! Almost a shame that the setup can't be viewed all of the time. Gorgeous!
It literally took me 15 minutes to take off my old axle-back and install these beauties. Super easy!
The sound. Like the title of the review says; The way an STi is supposed to sound! This setup is not too annoyingly loud and the tone of them just works. Not raspy at all, a nice low grumble that accentuates that unique Subaru sound. It is a little noisier in the cabin, but I find myself just listening to the exhaust and not my music.
I am 100% happy with this purchase. A must-have accessory!

I've wanted a wrx for years, and recently finally bought a 2013 premium hatchback. It's amazing in every way, but it was missing that growl that was one of the many things I loved about the wrx's I've seen on the road, and on video. Stock exhaust had to go. This axle back exhaust by Nameless makes my wrx sounds EXACTLY how it should. Couldn't be happier with this purchase. Worth every penny.

The welds are flawless, a breeze to install, and sounds fantastic. I spend more time with the radio off, so as not to take away from the sound. A+

Muffler delete axleback w/ staggered 3.5inch double wall tips
This axleback muffler delete really bring out the raw, aggressive rumble the factory muffler just can't produce. It's louder without being "too" loud. While there is a noticeable increase in cabin drone, it's certainly not anything that will disappoint. The exhaust has been on the car for just about a month now and I've adjusted to what little drone there is. The fitment is great and the brushed finish on the 3.5" double wall tips really complete the look of the car better when compared to the stock muffler.
The build quality and craftsmanship on this exhaust is is great and the fact that it's made here in the United States is another bonus.
Initially, the exhaust I received was built with some dimensions that were a bit off, causing the highest point of the piping to be pressed up against the bottom of the car. I contacted Jason on the Nameless website and he was not only in touch with me within minutes, but was very apologetic, helpful and probably one of the nicest customer service people I've ever done business with.
I definitely recommend this exhaust if you're looking for a nice, raw tone with a reasonable increase in volume.

I originally had a few questions before I ordered and they responded immediately. Excellent customer service. The fitment was perfect. The sound is amazing. I do recommend at least three hangers to stiffen the fitment up. I will be ordering a down pipe and mid pipe from them now based on the axle backs quality. One quick note, it did include gasket but hardware was not included. I picked up a set of stainless hardware for only a few dollars.

The exhaust sounds great, it really brings out that rumble..the quality of the build is second to none..very professional. Ordered mine on Sunday and it was here by Friday. Took a little longer to install due to some old rusty bolts just to get the old muffler down, but once that was out it went in nicely and there was no adjustment just put in hangers and line up bolts and tighten...done!!!! Very pleased with this purchase thanks to Nameless Performance!!!
