- Calculated at Checkout
Welcome to another episode of....The Executive! Response to our larger 10" Muffler on the 2nd Gen Crosstrek has been amazing, so we are quick to follow up with the same option for the first generation 2013-2017 Crosstrek and 2012-2016 Impreza. It's no surprise that many of us need a little more refined exhaust note during our day to day activities. That shouldn't mean that we are stuck with the factory exhaust with its lack of tone and abject silence. This is the exhaust for you, offering double the muffler size of our standard muffled axleback exhaust, this system cuts cold start volume, as well as reducing the overall sound level across the powerband.
There are certainly a multitude of other applications for this larger muffling option: Perhaps you're someone who has a lifted overland vehicle with our non-resonated, high clearance midpipe and you'd like to offset the sound increase that comes along with removing the resonator from the midpipe. Perhaps you've upgraded your factory exhaust manifold and it just took the sound level too far over the top for your liking and you're in need of a little more heavy lifting capability to keep those sound levels down at wide open throttle. Whatever your reason, this quieter solution to exhaust on the Impreza and Crosstrek fills a gap in the market for a high quality, hand TIG welded stainless exhaust system that will hit the goals you have for a sophisticated improvement over your current exhaust note.
Removing the large, heavy and restrictive factory equipped baffled mufflers in favor of one of our T304 stainless steel exhaust systems is not only great sounding, but also gives you more clearance.
Featuring factory fit laser cut flanges and 2.25" piping that provides excellent breathing characteristics for high end horsepower and torque while retaining the appropriate frequency to reduce in-cabin drone and keeping excellent sound outside the car.
Fits 2012-2016 Impreza Wagon and 2013-2017 Crosstrek with factory or upgraded Nameless Performance midpipe. Will not fit the newer models of Crosstrek or Impreza, those are available on a separate product page.
Each axle back exhaust system comes with a full hardware kit and gasket for a simple and clean installation.
FYI Our system will work with most but NOT every Tow Hitch on the market. Please, do your research on potential hitch clearance issues before you buy! Updates to the design have been made to accommodate a number of common hitch brands, but please reach out to us if you have any specific questions about your hitch.
Upgrading to our long lasting Nameless Performance urethane exhaust bushings over that the factory rubber bushings is highly recommended. The softer rubber factory bushings have too much flex and if you race your car or enjoy spirited driving the exhaust "wags" left to right which sometimes causes noise or the tips to touch the rear bumper on Crosstrek and Impreza applications. When this happens there is a chance your bumper can be damage or if you have a hitch or any other accessories can cause annoying sounds. The best way to avoid this is to use our urethane exhaust bushings to hold the exhaust in place. These upgraded bushings are not necessary to install our exhaust systems but for the small cost of upgraded units, it is an excellent idea! prevents common exhaust sag issues.
- 3 Bushings: Replace all 3 rubber bushings on the axleback portion of the exhaust.
- 4 Bushings: Replace all 4 of the factory rubber bushings from the mid pipe back.
