 Product Description

Our popular axleback design, which was previously only available for the XT, is finally available for the 2014-2018 Forester 2.5i.

Designed specifically for the 2014-2018 Subaru Forester, the Nameless Performance Axleback Exhaust is a direct factory fit to the OEM midpipe. Removing the factory 13.5lb mufflers in lieu of a mandrel bent, TIG welded, T304 stainless steel pipe.

Factory fit laser cut flanges and 2″ 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 2.5i 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 Tip

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. It braps

    Posted by on

    Install was real easy. Welds, hardware and gasket are good quality. Aesthetically I like it. Tho I feel like it could be a tiny bit more flush to bumper but it’s not enough that if protrudes. Sound wise it is pretty aggressive. Even tho the 5” is considered the quieter of the two options it is pretty throaty but if you’re light on the throttle it’s not too loud. At highway speeds it calms down and doesn’t have too much drone. The loudest is off the throttle at ~3.5k other than that it sounds good. If you want to hear that flat 4 sing get one of these.

  2. Quality exhaust with amazing sound.

    Purchased the 5" muffler exhaust for my 2018 2.5i Forester. Quality workmanship on all of the welds and installation was a breeze. Great low tones in lower rpm but mellows out at highway speeds. Wish I would have bought it sooner.

    The only modification I have made to my Forester, but it sounds great. I did a video to compare, stock muffler, no muffler and the nameless muffler. The nameless sounds the best, by far. Great product.

  7. Great product!

    Just put the muffler delete on and I'm very happy with it. It's no where near as loud as my old STI but that's what I was hoping for. It produces just enough rumble, very good product.
