^ I've been waiting for the same response. Apparently they had a prototype but never heard anything else.

I cant speak for the 08 Forester, but we are working on testing an axle-back on out 11 FXT. So hopefully soon we will have some pictures and what not.

What did you order? Axleback, catback? I believe the midpipe is available for order now. I want to pull the trigger also, was wondering if I should wait for e-cutout options or just go with the non-resonated midpipe w/ axleback.

Thanks for posting the pics. After I saw the single walled Nameless exhaust on your car I ordered it for mine. Looks great

I ordered just the axle back for now. I don't have the budget to do the entire catback yet and I'm waiting for the downpipe to come out as well but I NEED to hear that boxer rumble ASAP!!

Sounds like you have an exhaust leak at idle, I did with my NP catback when first installed. The 3.5" tips look nice, NP strongly recommended I go with the 3" as the 3.5" were lower quality. Unfortunately the 3" look pretty small on the car.

What do you think of the midpipe with no resonator? Any droning on the highway? Mine has the resonator and is pretty quiet with the stock DP.

That is the exact same thing I ordered only just the axleback. I had to pay a little extra as I guess those 3.5" single wall tips are a bit of a beast to weld on there. You can see how short the neck is on each side. In the end I'm going to be glad I did because it looks EXACTLY how I hoped it would which is, damn nice.

Hm, you might be right. I'll recheck my connections. The bolts he sent for the downpipe to midpipe connection were a bit long and he said he would send me new hardware. Never really noticed that in person...or it could be the camera? i'll try to figure it out.

I def like the midpipe without the resonator. I think it would be too quiet with one. Its def audible in cabin. As for droning goes, I havent noticed anything to annoy me. It just has a constant rumble to me at highway speeds. I will post some highway runs when i get a chance

Just installed my wife's 2010 Sti Nameless Performance Axle Back last week. We went with slash cut tips, double walled and flush with valance.

http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=2211855

My wife and I really love the sound. I think the 4" Magnaflow CBE on her 2010 has more punch and sounded slightly better. For the money....I honestly cannot see ever spending money on another setup... you would just be throwing money out the window.

Not sure what you paid but my setup was about $200 more than a Perrin.

xbeamelite: my leak was between the axle back and the rear midpipe piece, I ultimately had to add some gasket sealer to finish it. The dp to midpipe bolts were way too long for mine as well, I added a handful of washers. This shouldn't leak as the donut gasket and the flange do a good job of sealing even if it's loose. Easiest way to find any leaks is to start it up from cold and touch the flanges, mine was puffing very clearly when I touched it.

From what I've read on this site, your OEM exhaust pipe diameter is fine for nearly 400awhp. So unless you're pushing that number...why would you bother with a catback when you can just do a muffler delete? Maybe the hatchback model costs more than the sedan. It looks like the hatch axleback has more to it than the super simple sedan system.

Well the Magnaflow CBE was about 650 and the Nameless ABE was $300. The performance and sound is so close that it's clear to me that Nameless Performance has the edge in pricing.

Not only do that. Their build quality is 10 times better than the Magnaflow system we had.

I don't think you see the while picture. A car might see 400awhp, on a stock cbe. (Although I doubt it....) The power curve will suck ass.

Sounds like you're talking sedan as there isn't a $300 axleback for the hatch AFAIK. And it's hardly fair to price compare a cbe to an abe, most poeple want a 3" cbe when mating up to an aftermarket dp.

I had the NP axelback. Sound I doubt is similar. The NP is raspy and pops when you shift. I sold mine and bought the q300. For those that are trying to stay under warranty, getting every pony and keeping the warranty is worth it to pay a little more. Imo.

^ on a related note, installing a aftermarket CBE voids factory warranty?
