You guys remind me of another group of guys I met while I was stationed in Washington. They did work on my old Evo. If you would have a waiting list of some sort for parts, especially the exhaust and skid plate parts, for the 2011 hatch, I would love to email you to be put on it. I'm headed to Korea in 4 weeks for a 12 month tour but my car will be going into the shop to have some goodies added to it.

Nameless Performance sounds like it's going to be a good company offering great parts for our cars.

+1 on downpipe. I can't believe some of the prices companies are charging for their downpipes.

Here's a little about who we are and what we stand for: http://namelessperformance.com/about/

Already sent my vendor form in. My name will hopefully change to Jason@Nameless here in no time flat. We had been talking to Matt about about two weeks ago, now is obviously the time. :-)

Extreme Turbo Systems? They're down the street from us in the same population 7100 town. Our Mfg. Director John worked there for 2 years, back when their 1051hp 2.0 Evo was on the cover of D-Sport. :-) They're very good friends of ours and even do some of our mandrel bending.

Can't wait to post our big 'here's what we can do' introduction thread. Exhaust is only a small portion of what we are capable of manufacturing. And then I will be posting a 'Bring me an '08+ WRX Sedan' thread.

The sound will change over time because the packing will break down.

The welds may crack.

The tubing will be thin walled, and will be prone to cracking because of heat. It happened on a cheap downpipe I have.

You spent a lot of money on a good car, why skimp out now?

I can always add a coupon code to make you guys pay another $200 if you think my price is equivocal to poor quality. :-D

So, while you're reading these threads, care to comment on the lack of options for non-2011 WRX's?

I'm just saying, you might nab a customer as soon as I see something that would fit, say, a rally blue 2010 WRX... hypothetically speaking...

Is that Rally Blue WRX a Sedan or a Hatch?

I've got a few '08+ Sedan WRX customers who expressed interest in an axleback for their cars and I'd like to get one together. Just need to find a test car for fitting here in Portland. As soon as we get our vendor status dialed in (I need to sign some paperwork) here I'll be posting in the local areas trying to find customers with those cars so we can do test fits and dev work.

I think the bottom line is, our intent is to expand our product line to all of the GR series vehicles at the very least. We have a lot of things we are working on right now. I counted 12 platforms last night when going through our open development projects.

I'm ready to try something for the '11 WRX Hatch

This should also be compatible with the 08+ STI Hatch, so it's a fairly big market already out there

Oh, whoops, yeah sedan. Alas, if I were out in Portland, I'd offer you mine. I don't imagine you'll be in the Atlanta area anytime soon?

I love your videos. I just leave them on for the Jedi Mind Tricks sound track.

Back on topic. Do you think it's possible to get a side by side comparison of sound video between the stock 2011 STI Sedan exhaust and your axle back? I'm interested but really don't like the loud bee can noise some exhaust make.

Thanks! Glad I have the opportunity to support a local business!

Once I get my axleback in the mail I'll do one. Im guessing it wont sound that much different from my WRX without mufflers.

Guy built a fixture tonight (at least the start of one)...should be ready to start stuffing parts into it and see what we can pull off in the next few days. Sliding fences on the tip locators so we can adjust them easily.

PM me, I'd like to hear more about your car. It's an earlier generation WRX, right? I have a project we are planning out for the GR that I would also like to concurrently design for the GD.

Heh I do have friends in ATL, one of our full length exhausts is driving around there on a '72 BMW Bavaria. I am going to take some dimensions, and I am looking for someone with a stock '08+ WRX Sedan exhaust that can take some photos for me so that I can deduce whether I can just send a set of these exhausts out for test fit to someone. The Tip dimensions on our 2011 sedan exhaust, by the way, are 6 3/16" overall width.

We were hoping someone would notice that track or listen to the lyrics. Heh. I think the easiest way to do that sound test for us is just to have our local customer with the staggered dual tip come down to the local dealership and do a side by side comparison. Not sure how soon we can do that though.

We actually have a catback that we designed but there was so little difference in power and sound to the axleback, we deferred to only selling the axleback.

The catback design was a single 3" pipe into a 3" in/2.5" dual out with v-bands at the outlets and (planned) a set of v-bands halfway back on the tailpipes. We had the exhaust on our customer's car for a week and a half and about 2000 miles of driving in a variety of conditions - rain, snow, dirt, aggressive dry pavement driving, etc. and had no issues with rattling or any collisions between the exhaust and the chassis. And the design uses dual 2.5" design from the center of the car all the way to the tailpipes. I really like it, and before we thrashed the crap out of it, it looked pretty good. Here's the 'after flogging it' photo...which was also the point at which we decided never to use Vibrant hangers again...they're 400 series stainless and they rust. Lame.



We are however, planning on doing a midpipe though as well as a downpipe. That would give us a full catback design. We will also be utilizing some novel concepts to keep the sound levels down on that design, and we have plenty of space to do so with the muffler deletes out back. We may be interested in selling this catback if demand is high enough, but really, it'll be spendy. It's got four aircraft v-bands on it and is very complex tubing to ensure proper fit.

Talk to you all soon.

looks good though.
