 Product Description

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.

Muffler Options:

  • No Mufflers: Finally, the sound of the Sedan Muffler Delete for the hatch! We have had people banging down our door for this since we released the original muffler delete for the sedan. This is a 10 on the scale where stock = 0.

  • 4" Mufflers: This is our new design that uses our in-house mufflers. We build each of these mufflers by hand here in our shop with our usual attention to detail. This "Louder" version uses 2 mufflers that measure 6" long and 4" outer diameter. Despite their small size, these mufflers are extremely effective. The 4" mufflers are louder than the 5" mufflers. This is about a 7 on the scale where stock = 0.

  • 5" Mufflers: This is our new design that uses our in-house mufflers. We build each of these mufflers by hand here in our shop with our usual attention to detail. This "Less Quiet" version uses 2 mufflers that measure 6" long and 5" outer diameter. Despite their small size, these mufflers are extremely effective. This is about a 5 on the scale where stock = 0.

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.

This will not work with the SPT Dealer upgraded Catback

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.

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.

  1. Mellows with time.

    Posted by on

    This sounds awesome! It has a nice rumble without the tin can sound. When I first got it, it was very load and there was drone at around 2 - 2.5K. But this has mellowed after about two months of driving and I've been on a 5 hour trip and it was a trip with just a nice low rumble.

  2. Bye bye muffler

    Posted by on

    Greatest thing I've ever spent money on for my car... such a good sound. Not too loud when cruising and loud as hell when you get on the gas. Couldn't be happier. Thanks nameless!

  3. What an STi is supposed to sound like!

    Posted by on

    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!

  4. Awesome sound and fit

    Posted by on

    Love this exhaust have it on 2011 wrx hatch will say paired with my Cobb down pipe sounds like a rally car. Got the axleback no mufflers with 3.5 nonstaggered tips if you want loud definitely the way to go. Just have to say install was really easy 2 bolts, 4 rubber hangers and your good to go. Definitely wakes up your neighbors thanks nameless very pleased.

  5. Finally. My wrx sounds like a wrx!

    Posted by on

    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.

  6. The way the Subie should sound

    Posted by on

    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+

  7. Perfect direct fit axleback

    Posted by on

    Finally !! My WRX has that boxer RumblE. Installed my axleback today and it was a perfect fit. Nameless performance thanks 4 this ez 2 install muffler delete..and of course Props to Steve n Jake for assisting in answering a few doubtsI had.. great staff to work with. Iam saving up some loot to buy the full catback exhaust along with its DP. Looking foward to many more performance parts.

  8. Axleback Muffler delete - 2014 Subaru WRX hatch

    Posted by on

    2014 Subaru WRX hatchback
    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.
