 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.

    Love the exhaust! Well made and great sound. Definitely a must for those that want a little iconic Subie rumble. Since installing, the radio has been off and windows are down to enjoy the new sounds. Excellent product Nameless tyvm!

  2. Muffler Delete for best Subie Rumble

    Posted by on

    I thought the muffler delete axleback would be too loud. Nope! I enjoy listening to that sweet rumble. Some days I leave the stereo off and roll down the windows. This delete sounds that good. Fast shipping, great packing, well made and very straightforward installation. Do this so you won't sound like gramps's family truckster.

  3. Awsome!

    Exhaust came packed very well, and super easy to install. This is the best sounding axle back exhaust I have ever heard. You get the Subaru rumble everybody wants and it's a perfect fit.

  4. Great sound at idle.

    I am an old V8 man with his first 4 cylinder car. The stock exhaust on my 2017 Forester 2.5i premium sounded sick. Very quiet, but sick. Installing the axle back with 5" muffler was very easy. All the parts fit perfectly. I got the great sound at idle like I wanted. The exhaust really sounds good when you get it on hard. Highway sound is not too loud. Mid range rpm when accelerating is kind of annoying with my CVT transmission. Great product and a good value and very well made.

  5. Axleback with 5" muffler for Forester 2.5i

    Posted by on

    I absolutely love this exhaust. Fitment and build quality are excellent. The exhaust sound is now just loud enough to easily hear without being annoying, and the tone is excellent. Wife and kid approved. I deducted one star because I think the large 4" tip is a bit silly for such a non-sporty car (Forester 2.5i).

  7. Great exhaust

    The exhaust w/ 5" muffler is fantastic, easy install, fits very well, looks stock. Great sound when giving it the beans, but nice and quiet when you're just cruising.

  8. Great addition

    I love this exhaust, sounds great. It does not add an overwhelming sound as you drive. It does sound good though. What I couldn't believe, is that my Subaru picked up 3 more miles to the gallon. The tip looks really great too. I emailed the company, and had a response within minutes. Whoever runs that portion of this company, is on the ball. The great customer service is greatly appreciated.
