Yes. We are currently trying to make a decision on whether to front-load the downpipe development in front of the sedan midpipe.

Tough call. If I could get my local customer's 2011 Sedan up here next week while he's out of town we could get a lot of traction toward getting both designs finalized. Might be a tall order though.

There are a hell of a lot more hatches out there than sedans right now. Since the DP works on both I'd go with that.

May very well be an afterfire. Lord knows these cars run pig rich.

Ding ding. That's my bet. Doesn't mean I'm right though.

I never heard backfire (but I heard it sounds like a gunshot) before so I wouldn't know what it sounds like. But this pop ONLY happens right after I shift quickly or revving in neutral, never happens when i'm in gear or coasting. I just want to know if it is normal.


hm?


It sounds exactly like the pop from free revving (which i'm guessing is neutral revving). Except that neutral revving has about 2 pops. Never pops when I'm in gear.
Sorry Jason, but does that sound normal?

Yup, normal enough. Nothing to worry about.

sedan WARNING
If you plan to get a hitch installed, do NOT buy Nameless' current offering. The hitch won't fit.

The hitch shop attempted to install the Draw-Tite hitch. The problem is the hanger near the tip for both left and right sides. The location attached to the pipe has to move.

why change the design when its for a car that is not designed to have a hitch put on it? These cars are not made to be towing boats or much of anything.

??????? If I read the hitch specs correctly, the hitch can tow 2000 lbs. I would limit the car to 1000 lbs for safety's sake. My jet skis aren't going to roll themselves to the water

how much does two jet skis and their trailer weigh?

plus their system attaches in the exact spots the mufflers did so how would it fit differently with the larger mufflers on there?

Thats my question, if the hitch wont fit losing 14 pounds of mufflers, how will it fit with them in place?

Was this a universal hitch? Or model specific?

Yeah. I don't believe any hitch manufacturers make a hitch for the sedan. I have a 2010 WRX hitch here and it won't fit the 2011 hatch with the factory exhaust. Given that our AxleBack fits entirely in the area of the factory mufflers, I hate to be the bearer of bad news bit I don't think this has to do with our design.

Either way, call me and I'll do my best to help. 360.263.5001.

I believe all of you, I freely admit that I could have easily misread the fitment specs, but I don't feel that bad, as the 'expert' hitch shop guy looked it up in his resources and also said that it would fit. anyway, life goes on.

thanks for the responses

Newb question and a Nameless question I'm hoping both can be answered here. My wife an I just picked up an '11 WRX hatch 2 weeks ago. From reading reviews on Nasioc/watching videos/wanting to keep my dollars in Washington, we were considering buying a nameless Axleback. I want to know if there are options in addition to the axleback that will give the car any more power or MPG without a tune and without messing with our Warranty, or if we buy the axleback now for sound if we'll need to look for a different muffler-less exhaust when our warranty is up if we want power gains, or if this exhaust will integrate fine with another system. Explanations don't need to be too dumbed down, I've restored two cars, but this is my first experience with a turbocharged vehicle, and I'm pretty lost as to what my options are, especially when it comes to pissing off the dealership.

pretty much a tune is the most basic thing to get more power or better economy (other than keeping off your right foot lol). MPG will start going up once you finish the break in. Prior to changing my oil I was getting 23.4 overall. Now since changing it I am getting 24.3. I have stage 1 93 map and the axleback on my sedan. Have fun with the WRX

I drove our midpipe prototype car from Portland to Seattle last weekend to be returned to the customer, and I tested everything from 3rd to 6th at iterations between 30 and 90mph and experienced no drone.

It's true what our beta tester said, this exhaust does not drone. I don't own an STi but driving that one for three hours made me want one. Bad.

Thanks for the reply, I'm seriously considering one.

How does the volume compare to an spt exhaust? I'm just trying to get an idea of exactly how loud the hatch axleback is to decide whether I want to get one.

Wish I had some info on that. Haven't had the two side by side to compare, and when I did, it was the SPT on a stock dp vs. a full turboback featuring our axleback design. The hatch axleback alone is not loud. At all. And the SPT exhaust is rumored to sound like pooh when you put a downpipe in front of it - as I'm pretty sure it's still a baffled muffler with a larger midpipe and no center resonator. Ours sounds like a million bucks in full turboback trim.

You can have that experience again - my car is ready for you so we can dial in that midpipe.

I haven't heard an SPT but I've had 7 different catbacks on my hatch Including the Nameless. I was the beta tester for the hatch.

Here's my loudness rating for some of the systems that have been on my car;

10 - TsudoN1 Single tip WRX fart canon
6 - TurboXS Single tip WRX catback
5 - Perrin Quad tip
4 - Nameless hatch axle back
4 - Magnaflow quad tip catback
1 - Stock

The Nameless axle back sounds great. Very low or no drone. This was with a catted DP and a resonated midpipe.

If you are looking for a great sounding system that is loud enough to enjoy but mellow Nameless is a great choice. Now if they would hurry and start selling their midpipe you'd be in great shape.

What I WANT is a quad tip catback that is in the level 6-7 range. In fact I think this one would do the trick.



http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...1&postcount=47

Too bad John and Jason are too busy to work on this. Been drooling over this for 3 months. I'm close to pulling the trigger on a quad tip catback maybe it will be this one but I'm impatient and tired of the single tip catbacks on my car.

Maybe if there is more interest they'll move this thing up the list to be worked on.

I saw some photos of Facebook of the new 3.5" single wall quad-tip axel back for the sedan... Are those currently for sale? I also saw a comment about one pictured in the photo being "slash cut" as opposed to staggered. Would slash cut be when both pipes are cut together at one angle? I would love to purchase the 3.5" tips but have them staggered. Any estimate on when those are available?

They are available on the website now. The design as it currently stands is non staggered, slash cut (all four tips are at a 15 degree - I believe - angle without any stagger between the inboard and outboard tips.

We are going to try to see if we can just mod these tips in house to provide the staggered look, I should have information on that fairly soon.

For those of your curious, here are the new photos of the quad single wall 3.5" tips:

That staggered look really adds to the completeness. Something feels out of place without it. Of course, that's my personal opinion.
