$300 Nameless Performance exhaust ('11 WRX/STI) sounds like Perrin?
Ok so I've been looking around for a cheap exhaust to throw on my WRX '11 sedan to make it sound a little louder than stock and I ran across this company called Nameless Performance. I've already searched around and checked out their stuff and it seems like they're a pretty decent small company.
The product I'm interested in is their $300 Axleback exhaust for the 2011 WRX/STi sedan.
edit:Just got my Nameless Performance axleback today. I ordered it flush with the valance and it looks incredible. The install was pretty quick, took about 10 mins to get the stock mufflers off and another 10 to put the new ones on. However, I think I spend 1 hour+ trying to adjust my new mufflers. (I still don't think I got them even) They sound amazing!!! It's not exactly "loud" but it sounds soooo aggressive it's ridiculous. Videos on youtube certainly do this exhaust no justice. I've never heard a Perrin exhaust in real life but from watching so many youtube videos of it I gotta say the Nameless sounds very similar. I have a buddy with an Invidia and this exhaust sounds nothing like that. Taking off from a dead stop is when the exhaust is at it's loudest imo, cruising at 2k rpm and there is no drone at all. If you roll up the windows you can hardly tell it has an aftermarket exhaust on it. I didn't get a chance to test it out too much but I'll be sure to let you guys know how it sounds after a week or so. However as of right now I am super happy with it.
*btw if you guys want to know what it'll sound like just take your stock mufflers off, the nameless performance exhaust sounds like that except a tiny bit raspier and more defined. this is definitely not a quiet exhaust nor is it super loud*
Here are a few videos of it on my car.
*yeahhh i know they're not even yet*

Hey guys it's been awhile since I've posted in here. I'm the OP of this thread and I'm pretty sure I've had the Nameless Performance 3" muffler delete axleback probably the longest around here (since 02/2011). Before I posted here pretty much no one had heard of this company before and there were only about 3 videos on youtube of the exhaust. I saw that even RallySportDirect is now carrying Nameless Performance products which is awesome.
A couple of weeks ago I began looking for a new exhaust just to change things up a bit. I wanted something louder after hearing all those Invidia N1 exhausts but hated the single or double tip look on the 2011+ WRX/STI's. The Nameless axleback is great for making our cars sound louder and better than stock but I always felt the tone was never really deep. I was thinking about the Nameless midpipe but it was a little out of my budget. I had a Perrin downpipe on my car for a couple of months and the exhaust was definitely loud but it was also a bit raspy and not too deep sounding.
Since I wanted to keep the quad tip exhaust look I researched into the more popular exhaust options for 11+ WRX/STI's but I didn't really like how any of them sounded and they all sounded a bit too quiet with their huge mufflers. I finally came across the P&L catback exhaust and decided from the small amount of people that have written reviews for it that it is probably the loudest quad tip exhaust setup available out there right now.
I received the exhaust last week and took some video clips of my Nameless axleback exhaust setup and my new P&L catback exhaust setup. The rumble on the P&L catback is ridiculous, it's not too much louder than the Nameless Exhaust (I tried to use the dB meter on my iPhone) but the exhaust tone is SOO DEEP! I'm sure most of that is due to the resonator and mufflers that they use.
Anyways I really enjoyed the Nameless axleback and I'm hoping I'll love my new P&L catback just as much.
