Anyone have any updated pics of the 3.5 inch tips? I'm really trying to like them, but they still seem too small. I feel like 4 fills it perfectly. Maybe if the 3.5's were a little more spread or dual walled?

I don't have pics but I do agree that the single walled tips just don't fill the gap out enough.

Since other people are posting up videos of their exhaust I guess I'll put another one up too. Excuse the n00by shifting -__-


Btw does anyone know what is the sound at 0:17 ? This is the first time I've noticed it, kinda freaked me out when i was driving

0:30 POP POP POP POP when I lift off the gas

That little burp? Mine does it too, it's normal don't worry. I've heard it in other exhaust videos as well.

I love the way the exhaust sounds without a muffler, I'll probably end up ordering their non-muffled hatchback exhaust whenever they release it. I imagine it would be cheaper than the one with the muffler because it would just be a straight pipe replacing it.

Does the sedan version drone at all on the highway?

Ah ok I hope it's nothing. Yeah I really like the way it sounds and can't wait till they release their midpipe.

I wouldn't really say it drones on the highway but you can defiantly hear it if you're accelerating. If you maintain a constant speed you can't really hear it at all.

it's nothing.

(interstate) while cruising, you definitely hear it under load (like going uphill) more than on flatland

If they fabbed up some 4in tips, dual walled or maybe even not, I would be all over this. Until then, I save up for an unreasonably expensive exhaust (invidia or mangaflow )

I would keep saving then. Jason already said that the 4 inchers would have to include tin snips to trim the valance to make em fit!

Really? That's odd seeing as how invidia is 4"

Are they? I'm just going on what I read throughout this thread. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong. The invidia does Look amazing...too bad it's about 1.5 times the price for noise and a loss of torque, as compared to this system.

Yep, 110mm, which is actually a bit more than 4". As for torque, that can be argued. I'm not going to go and say one is better than the other, because honestly I feel any exhaust change before Stage 3 is unecessary and yields little to no results.

One site I found had the invidia at only 3.8 inches. Not much different then 3.5. Not to mention nameless can stagger there 3.5's like the ones i will be receiving this Monday. Nameless changed the spacing between the 3.5's also now so it fills in the valence better.

A guy posted my pics for me on page 65 of this thread. The old style 3.5's are pictured on the car. The last picture is of my set, spaced and staggered. I am the first to get these. I got the all blacked out but that pic is before powder coat.

Hmm, that makes me a bit more interested. The stagger doesn't really matter to me seeing as how the outlet is flat, so I feel a staggered look doesn't really belong there as much, but a little spacing between the tips might create that look I'm going for.

Yeah, I went with the stagger to kind of play off of the stock tips even though the stock stagger isn't too noticeable. I just think it also gives it a little more design to it. To each his own though. I will try and post some pics this Wednesday after my install.

When are they supposed to release the non-muffled hatch axleback?

Unfortunately it will not just be a non muffled hatch axleback. You are going to have to buy their sedan midpipe which will have the muffleless hatch axleback attached to it. In order for the hatch to get the same sound that the 300 dollar sedan axleback provides you are going to be looking at paying around $800 for the system.

Sucks, but this is the case.

Why is that?

I imagine you could hook it up to the stock midpipe then if you wanted later down the line you could buy their midpipe and make it a catback. Or are they designing it so that the exhaust only fits up to their midpipe?

Finally, for once, it is cheaper to obtain a system for the sedan! I can find hatch systems EVERYWHERE and for cheap. Woohoo!

I was planning on eventually getting the SPT for my hatch. Now that I have read through the entire thread I am definitely glad that I didn't. I'll definitely be putting in an order within the next few weeks! Top notch work!

BTW, I wanna see more of the Rally bus! I have a vanagon too, and in some sick way I enjoy driving that more than my brand new wrx.

I have a friend with an sti hatch rocking the SPT. It does sound amazing, but he said the drone can be much at times. Perfect sound though. From what I'm reading, the nameless system for the hatch is on the quite side for the axleback.

I believe it is all in the how the hangers line up. I think Jason could comment on it more. He seems like a great guy and is very helpful. I do loooove the way that sedan axleback sounds and wish we could get that sound for the same price for the hatchback, but it had somethign to do with the design. I htink you have to get the catback version that uses there sedan style mid pipe and mufflerless axleback for the hatch.
