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.

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!!!

Sounds like my car ate a Honda and is trying to fart it out. I am on cloud 9. The Welds are clean tips sit even. No drone. As Bruce Buffer would say " Lets get ready to Ruuuumble" It was worth every coin! Buy it

Just installed my axle back 5 inch mufflers, single-walled non-staggered tip exhaust on my 2012 WRX hatch and I love it! The sound is perfect! I am 41 and have my now teenage kids in the car often and it's not too loud inside...but you can certainly hear it! For me, I can't imagine it being any louder for my dad to day use, but others may disagree. Fitment is perfect - Nameless does a super nice job with welds and craftsmanship...and I love buying something made in the USA. Perhaps I happened to order at the right time (maybe a batch was up for being made) but I ordered on 12/31/15 in the afternoon and it was at my door 1/9/16! Installed that day! Installation was a little bit of a pain as I had once factory bolt stuck, but I was able to do it all myself. Customer service was super awesome - quick with answers to my questions. I couldn't be happier.

Very well built, clean welds all around, perfect fit and very easy to install. I was afraid of getting an axelback too loud and annoying but this one sounds smooth. Have no complaint. Thanks alot NP.

I wanted to keep the quad tip exhaust but didn't like the sound of the invidia q300. This exhaust sounds great really brings out the great subaru rumble on highways has minimal drone and sounds great at low rpm. I went with the 4 inch with no muffler and the tit's fill the gap nicely.

The craftsmanship and materials are top shelf quality. The service you get from Nameless is above and beyond. The sound that comes from the Nameless Axleback in full delete will make your ears very happy! It's pretty moderate under normal driving conditions and really rumbles when you want it to. I'm a lifetime customer for sure.

I love this exhaust! It literally took me 20 minutes to take the stock exhaust off and install the new one! Everyone on the nameless team has outstanding customer service, everytime i logged onto the site someone was in the chat room asking if i needed assistance. Only down side is it took about a month to build but it was SO worth the wait! Thank you so much nameless!
