Update!

Installed the nameless Axleback - 3.5 Quad Single wall Staggered tips. Definitely took longer than the 30 minutes people say....for me atleast. Wow it has mean rumble to it but really is pretty quiet on freeway cruising speeds of 60+. When you start pushing the throttle though harder, it starts kicking in, usually around 7+ psi...

Quick start-up after the installation: http://www.flickr.com/photos/mikelwong/6007891512/

Also laid LaminX Smoke film on the rear tails. Didn't turn out great in terms of the application of it but I'm hoping that sitting in the sun will help remove some of the air bubbles and have it self adhere to the surface better.

Before:


After:


Close up of exhaust tips by valence:


Can see the air bubbles in the middle of the housing and at the top where it turns hard...


Thoughts? Feedback? Hate it, love it? let me know

I'll take more better ones too this weekend in daylight.

i like everything but the taillight tint, i've never been a huge fan of that. Good work though man, the simple mods make the biggest difference sometimes.

Thanks dude.

I agree - simple, subtle mods can really make things pop and stand out.

We'll see how the laminx works out. Might end up scrapping it if the bubbles don't go away.

Next project will be vinylling side mirrors flat black.

nice man, i'm spraying my tails with VHT nightshades soon. I had bought a pair of 07 FXT tails to paint so I'd still have my oem ones if I want to go back, but they appear to be lost in the mail. personally i like the tinted look.

Nameless actually doesn't sound too bad on youtube.

I got one sound clip but I'm gonna wait until I can do a better one this weekend.

It's true how much better they sound in person than in the recordings.

Nothing new really - Put on the I overlay emblem on the front and rear. Figured I'd post a few pics of the car with the emblem as well as a (not so great) video of the sound of the Nameless Performance axleback exhaust.

Just got back from a joy ride and also, I put on the emblem overlay from Glillly...looking good!

Enjoy! - Will try to start getting some suspension mods going soon...

You'll love the sounds all around. Bang for buck it's great and the sound can really be dictated by how hard you drive her. Step on the gas, roars like all he'll, but just cruising at a steady rpm and so idle, it's relatively quiet.

Added more black accents by vinyl wrapping the fog light inserts and the mirrors... Would like to remove amber and bake the housing next...

Been wanting to hit the fender badges for a while now. Finally got a black, paint touch up pen. Looks good as long as you don't get within a foot of it. Like how it pops a little bit rather than just being a plain silver strip.

Tried to get artistic with the Needle in the window and the skyline out of focus...

SPT Turbo heat shield installed


Along with STI Rear Stabilizer bar.



Not much aggressive cornering on it yet, but definitely feel the difference, wouldn't mind going a bit stiffer even.

would you be willing to trade mirror covers since you are looking for the black? I have a 08 silver sedan and they came black along with the door handles too. PM me if interested. Thanks
