2) I see you are recommending polyurethane bushing for the hatchback but have not done so for the sedan.
--- a) Is this due to a difference between sedan and hatchback or will you be recommending them for the sedan as well
--- b) Is it possible to get a good fit without the bushings? I haven't looked under my car to see how exactly everything hooks up
3) Is the hatch exhaust flush with the valence or recessed? Looks pretty close to flush in the vids but wanted to be sure
4) I'll be going for sound rather than performance at this point in time. Is there any downside to just installing the axle-back with the step in size and is the gasket included?
Ah yes, busy day. I started replying to this earlier but got derailed with a few phone calls.

1. Yes, it is similar to that but instead of coming into the muffler at the rear it comes in the side. It is a straight through, non baffled, perforated pipe inside the muffler that goes from the inlet to a Y inside the muffler.

2. I'm just offering the bushings because I think some people may want them and I make a little money on them. They're a great solution for a rallycross/autocross/track car or a car that may see these events. The factory bushings are sloppy and in high cornering and left-to-right chicane type stuff, they will let the muffler move around more than the urethane units. These can also just as well be used on the Sedan. They are not by any means necessary for proper fitment or to keep the tips from touching the valence.

3. Hatch is currently only available in flush. We have only sold five exhausts that were not flush. It's the best option and if I can decrease confusion by decreasing options that nobody picks, I'll do it. That's not to say that we can't do custom stuff for anyone. And our fixture is set up variably to move those tips wherever you please.

4. No detractions to attaching to the factory midpipe and the gasket that spans the size of both flanges is included. We will eventually have a pull down menu item that requests whether or not the end user is attaching it to a factory midpipe or a 3".

Finally, that photo of 'flush' that xabre posted is not our exhaust and is not what our 'flush looks like. That photo sticks out a little bit, ours are flush. I.E. extended to match the face of the valence, not to stick out. The photos on our website of the sedan axleback show a side view for clarity.

And if you need any clarification about what the options are or which you should buy for your car, CALL ME. 360.263.5001. And if you don't leave a message, don't expect a call back. I get 20 hangups on the answering machine every day. We're a 3 person shop and we are busy as a three legged cat burying a turd on a marble floor. That's not to say that I won't spend a half an hour on the phone talking to you to answer all of your questions - that's my job here. :-)

Talk to you all soon!

The defintions I found aren't quite right..
Ok no problem!

Staggered is where the dual tailpipe tip on one side (two pipes per tip) are offset relative to each other so the tip nearer the outboard (fender) of the car is sunk in a little further (in our case .5") than the inboard (license plate) tip. This gives the nice curved look that matches the rear of the car. It fits well. Some people want a straight tip though, similar to the BMW M3 exhausts - both tips are the same length relative to one another.

The valence is the bumper cover - that big piece of plastic that wraps around a chunk of styrofoam on the back of your car ;-) The 'valence' typically refers to the lower edge of this bumper panel, where the cutouts are for the tips to poke out of the back of the bumper. So when we say 'flush with valence' we mean that the end of the tailpipe tips goes out just to the edge of the bumper. 'Halfway is halfway between the 'flush' position and the 'recessed' factory position.

Double Wall/Rolled Lip/Single Wall are the style of tip -

A double wall tip is a design where the tailpipe tip is actually made up of closed inner and outer wall so there is an air gap between the inside of the pipe and the outside of the tip.

A rolled lip tip is a single wall tube of stainless steel with the outside lip (that faces the back of the car) mechanically rolled in, so the edge isn't sharp.

A single wall tip is one that is just basically a pipe that is usually cut at an angle or straight, but it's just a .065" thick pipe.

Hope that adds some clarity. We plan on updating our website fairly soon to have some good illustrations of these options to clarify for our future customers as well. Just been busy making existing parts and designing new ones. Need to focus on the website soon! Lots.

Talk to you all soon,

Your friendly neighborhood parts builder,

Jason

Depends on whether or not it can get welded out tonight. If not tonight it'd be finished Monday and shipped Tuesday, which is barely just maybe squeezing it in for Friday delivery. I'll do my best to finish it and ship it Monday to ensure that you get it by the weekend. I'll put a note on the work order as well. :-)

Thanks for the business, really appreciate it!

I have a customer who just got a black set on a WRB car. I'll ping them and see if they're installed yet. Not sure who else is running the 10% Gloss (which is actually almost a satin finish, it's low gloss, not full gloss) on a WRB colored car.

But yes, our midpipe will connect to the factory or COBB 2.5" outlet on the downpipe.

As for pricing, here's the deal:

Catback (one price if you buy it all at once): $899.
Axleback on its own: $485 (will be discounted to $435 until we release the midpipe).
Midpipe on its own: $515 (if you buy an Axleback before the midpipe is released you'll get $50 off on it as well).

So the bottom line is, you get the catback price if you buy the Axleback first. And if you only buy the axleback first with no intention of buying a midpipe, you get $50 off for being one of the early adopters of the system.

Jason
When is the midpipe getting released? I won't be able to order the exhaust for another week or so.

Also, this may be a noob question, but how big is the box it comes in? Where I choose to have it delivered is dependent on its size.

Put my exhaust on last night, installation is easy and everything bolts perfectly up to stock piping. These pipes sound absolutely amazing! Youtube videos do NOT do this product justice. It's very loud, but not annoying, and your car will sound nasty when you step on it.

Greatly satisfied customer!

You guys do realize that we are discussing 2 different systems right?

The Sedan exhaust is still $300
http://namelessperformance.com/produ...eback-exhaust/

The Hatch exhaust is $435
http://namelessperformance.com/produ...eback-exhaust/

Do some research before pooping yourselves.

Me too

Was going to spend 300 + 40 bucks shipping for the axleback, but now the hatch is gonna be almost 500 bucks with shipping for an axleback.

Just seems to be too high now to justify. I guess I'm still a little confused how the hatch is more expensive than sedan?

He answered that question a couple pages back. It's because the hatch axleback has mufflers and more complex bends. It just costs more to make. If you look at the pics of both the sedan and hatch version, it'll make sense.
