 Product Description

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

Designed specifically for the 2014+ 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+ 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. Best compliment available for CVT transmission

    Posted by on

    Overall, I love this exhaust. It gives a hint of boxer rumble when you start the fozzy up and when you rev. However, as stated by others, it can be a tad drony between 1500-2000 rpms. But it definitely makes driving the subie more fun and let's you get a better feel for what the car is doing and not the awkward silence.

  2. Great sounding exaust

    Purchased 5" muffler option.
    Installed on a 2018 2.5i touring 6MT (canadian). Excellent exhaust note, nice deep subi rumble. Not too loud, not too soft, just right. As far as install, super easy. Definitely would recommend for forester owners that are looking for a more aggressive sounding exhaust. Build quality is top notch, impressive welds. Great customer service as well!

  3. Quality and Sound

    Posted by on

    I purchased the axel back with muffler delete. The sound is great. It is not whiny or rattly. It is not overly loud but it certainly isn’t quiet. There is a mild highway drone but if I am cruising at 70mph in 6th with the radio on I can’t hear it. My wife and I share the car and she loves the increased loudness, but if your wife isn’t as into cars as mine you should probably get the 5in muffler option.

    Guaranteed best quality mufflers. I put this on my Subaru Forester 2.5i and it sounds great. It makes it sound faster than it really is, lol.

  5. Great exhaust

    Posted by on

    I purchased the 5-inch muffler for my 2017 Forester 2.5. I was glad that someone produced a muffler for my model because they're hard to find for the 2.5. First, the construction and appearance are fantastic. The exhaust tip really filled in the bumper cover. Second, the sound is so much better than stock. If you want to bring out the Boxer sound, this is the way to go.

    I also purchased two of the exhaust hangers. The jury is still out on whether they made a difference, but since I was changing the muffler I figured why not.

    I bought the laser milled plate for the front license plate are. While it is a well-made and good looking piece, I thought it would be large enough to cover the are on the front bumper cover.

    My only knocks were the wait time and the exhaust gasket needed to be drilled a little to fit the flanges. Overall, it is great exhaust at a good price. If I purchase another Subaru, I would definitely consider another exhaust from Nameless Performance.

  6. Awesome simple improvement for my car

    Purchased the Axleback 5 inch muffler for my manual shift 2017 Subaru Forester. I installed the beautifully welded exhaust and also put a more open K&N filter on. Sounds great, but the best part is that the car feels more open - it wants to rev and is more enjoyable to drive. I've kept the windows and sunroof open when I can to enjoy driving the car more. Great update. Had an install issue and tech support called me while I was under the car - thanks for being responsive.

  7. A must have for 6 speed Foresters

    Really can't say enough positive things about this exhaust! Absolutely perfect for a daily driver. Sounds fantastic, not loud at all, zero drone on the highway. Definitely the best balanced exhaust system I've ever owned. Looked great, welds were top quality, and it fit perfectly. The incredibly low price is the icing on the cake. There's no good reason not to buy this exhaust! You won't be disappointed!

  8. Plenty of sound no longer sounds like a prius
