We are excited to announce our new axleback exhaust for the 2019+ Subaru Ascent. We were keen on getting one of these cars in to take a closer look at it and we were surprised at how much of the layout deviates from a later model conventional Subaru like the Legacy or WRX/STi. Subaru have really made some sweeping changes and the result is a really nice vehicle that we suspect will be the look of things to come as new model year vehicles are released from Subaru. The axleback provided us the standard opportunities to pick up some midrange torque and horsepower while bringing the tone back to an exhaust that otherwise has none. We were surprised at how quiet these vehicles are both without the exhaust as well as post-modification, and would highly advocate to consider choosing the muffler delete if you don't have any plans to make any further modifications to the exhaust. We suspect the downpipe and the resonator in the factory midpipe heavily contribute to the overall sound level of the exhaust, so keep that in mind when choosing a muffler option.
The exhaust installs in a snap, just four bolts and four exhaust hanger bushings to remove the factory exhaust. Optionally install the upgraded exhaust with four of our standard urethane exhaust hanger bushings to more firmly hold the upgraded exhaust in place if you plan on overlanding or off-roading the vehicle substantially. Or if you just like upgrading things, which many of us here also enjoy doing. Your secret is safe with us.
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.

Love my new muffler deletes. They sound great and are loud. The welds and quality on these deletes are far above my expectations.
