Personally I would go with the turboxs. If it rattles they will warranty it. I sold my np axelback right after I got it. Spaces around the tips looked unfinished to me, too much rasp for me. Build quality is good on the NP, however I doubt the turbo xs isn't durable enough for what the car really requires and it might be built just as good as the NP, machine welds are fine if they are done right, doesn't have to be hand welded to be of good quality. Just my opinion.

Thanks for the input. I actually went ahead and put in an order for the NP axleback. I don't think the space around the tips will bother me too much, since the hatch already has them to begin with. Also, from speaking to Jason & John at Nameless, it seems like the 4" mufflers should reduce the rasp and make it more refined.

Yeah the mufflers should greatly improve the sound. You should be happy with it. Post some pics when you throw that thing on!

Thank you, not sure how how I missed that. Might if thought it was the single wall, they look so much skinnier when they're that big. Do they look better in person? I think I like the 3" better.

Here is a video of the muffled cat back with 5" mufflers on both the Y-pipe and on the axle backs.

^ Interesting.. I have their axle back with 4'' mufflers, i want to get the midpipe as well, but wanst sure if i wanted the extra mufflers. what made u choose that option? do u think the midpipe with resonator without the extra mufflers would be too loud? later down the road i also wanna get their downpipe.

I had the 4" muffled axle back and it was too loud for me. I figured I'd go all out and get the quietest option available. As you can see it's not "quiet", but it's very nice for daily driving and having people in the back seat, all while giving that grunt that we all like.

I might have to email NP and see if i can get the mid y-pipe with the 4inch mufflers to match my 4inch mufflers on the axle back,
I love the sound of mine, love the volume too, but i'm scared when i get their downpipe it will be too loud if i dont get the extra mufflers on the y-pipe.
i just dont want the cops to give me ****..

Just though I'd share some pics of my Namesless CBE with 3.5" staggered double wall tips. I also had the axle back ceramic coated.

Nice plate and stealthy

It finally came. Axle back, quad 3.5" double-walled, staggered tips with 5" mufflers.






Anybody else think they're sitting just a tad low? I'm hoping exhaust finishers will fill in more of the remaining gap.

Yeah a little low imo. I would bend the hangers maybe. Not a fan of the finishers myself.

Yep, are you using stock hangers? Jason recommended using their bushings for that very reason. Other than that, it looks real good. Hopefully mine comes in before next weekend...

Prolly gonna go with the bending. Those finishers are quite pricey

I assume you meant stock bushings; yes I am. When I spoke with him, he actually recommended their bushings if the car would see some track time as the exhaust may be prone to swaying

Whoops, that's what I meant. Yeah, he said their bushings would prevent the swaying, but they also sit up a little bit higher than the stock ones.

If you bend the hangers your going to want to use some pretty good heat like mapp gas or something. Use some form of measurement don't just freehand it, it will a b**** to align them afterwards if you don't.

For the sake of future unnecessary headaches, I'm opting to call Nameless again and ask about those bushings. I would hate to ruin the craftsmanship/effort that went into the product.
