No. That's my point. Maximizing horse power with mods that retain your warranty. Might have been confusing the way I put it b4. Think my brain shat when I typed that.

Mods do not void warranty. Warranty just does not cover failures that can be blamed on mods.

^correct. It would be very hard to blame a failure on a cbe.

I just might go single wall this time around. The double wall was a lot maintenance. Maybe it was just because I was catless, but it would only last about two days before it was dirty again. I think I might go with the single walls for that reason.

Not remotely. Anything aft of the catalyst will not bother any dealer and if they do act bothered, slap them. Arguments for turbo seal replacement can be made (although not necessarily won, a simple backpressure transducer test can disprove this argument) for lower backpressure downpipes, but not for anything aft of the catalysts.

We are currently working with a number of Subaru dealerships to get our exhausts for sale, installed and provided as options on new cars. Subaru has given the green light for selling our parts in dealerships in a number of instances, so I have no concern about our products effecting any warranty claims in any of your futures.

I always found it funny when dick-move dealers scolded customers for intakes and turned around and sold SPT or Mazdaspeed intakes that were less refined than the intakes I have built and thoroughly tested. I got to send LTFT side by side data to a dealer once to show them that the factory provided intake was sub-optimal to our design. Pretty comical actually, proved that they didn't even know what variables intakes could effect and what the thresholds were for CEL and overall enleanment of the burn. Some people are just on a power trip.

The best way to avoid this is to build a good relationship with your dealership and techs. Get to meet the people who work on your car, introduce yourself, bring donuts, and don't be one of those people who is always second guessing the dealer. Service writing isn't an easy job (well, it is kindof if you're passionate about it), and it's certainly unforgiving. People tend to have a 'I'm about to get screwed' attitude when they go to the dealer and it shows.

Just my 2 cents.

^This is why, even though the sound wasn't for me, this company is amazing! Great quality products at an amazing price. The best part is, however, their customer service and the way it sets a new standard. Keep it up J!

Hmm, 08. I think that should share an exhaust with the '05-'08 Legacy GT, correct? Any length difference?

I do have an exhaust for the 05 Legacy GT that we just built a fixture for (has been on the car running around for a couple months now). Utilizes our 3.5" straight cut double wall tips that we build in house. I'd be willing to send an exhaust free of charge with the assumption that if it fits, I bill your credit card.

Drop me an email and we can discuss: jason.g@namelessperformance.com

I know the 2011 has the same exhaust as our single exit per side WRX axleback, but I believe the forester is few inches shorter, maybe 2.5". The main difference between say, the early and late (current model) Legacy GT's is a slight difference in the pipe layout (minor) and a difference in the clocking of the flanges (about 90 degrees out).

I'd imagine your Forester XT has a slightly shorter exhaust than the Legacy GT also.

I can't find an answer to this: does this exhaust drone at all at any speeds? That's the last thing I want in my exhaust.

Price listed on website lists this exhaust at $480. Going through here is it the $300 then?

I don't think it drones necessarily but it was a little loud in my sedan with the 3.5" tips. These cars don't have a lot of sound deadening to them. If you get louder then stock its going to be louder then stock in the car as well. It does have a kinda loud grumble over 65mph to me as well. It doesn't resonate inside but it is a little loud imho.

If it doesn't drone, I can deal with that. I plan on installing some sound deadening in the back and the doors, perhaps throughout the floor as well... only dilemma I have is the added weight, but if the cabin becomes Lexus quiet, or better than it is now, then I can live with the small performance loss over noise pollution.

As far as sound deadening goes Google a product called brown bread. Heard its awesome. Best bang for the buck. Its what I will be purchasing.

Neither systems drone. Period. You might be able to simulate a drone by really lugging sixth on the freeway repeatedly, like say at 50mph. But honestly, they do not drone. And if there is any sound at a cruise, it is minimal, and in the case of the sedan, lower than stock in my opinion.

Also, as for price on the hatch, the $485 price is for the AxleBack alone, but you end up with a $100 discount by purchasing the full catback at $899 resonated, or $849 non resonated. In the hatch application we just feel that the midpipe is integral in order to get the best sound. The AxleBack alone is pretty mellow vs. stock.

We are also working on a sedan style exhaust for the hatch, using our sedan midpipe or a factory sedan midpipe as well as a shorter, diameter tuned set of muffler delete pipes in the back.

I wouldn't have believed this statement if I didn't have the exhaust. My wife is a "PassengerSeatDroneAdvisor(tm)" and she loves it compared to stock. That bassy note is gone that used to rattle the pictures in our house when I started it in the morning.

That boring stock tone was replaced with angry swarms of dark evil from the blackened abyss of hell, tearing at the very fabric of all that was mild and cheerful before and creating sadistic grins on everyone's face whilst still remaining "officer of the law" friendly.

In summary it definitely sounds meaner and doesn't drone.

As a sedan owner, I'm really interested in picking up the axle back but want to purchase the mid pipe and new Y muffler that you have in the works, as well. Jason, do you recommend waiting until the full cat back is released to purchase as a whole, or buy piece by piece, as the parts become available? Does it matter?

Would you mind posting which variation you purchased? 3.5" tips, flush, etc.

I'm going to say it also: I don't think you'll find a better handbuilt exhaust than ours on the market. We do great work, it's not all polished and mirror finish, but all of our pipes are brushed prior to welding and the systems install perfectly every time. We're working on a series of installation instructions to make things easy to install right out of the box as well.

And I'll even admit to our mistakes: out of our first batches of exhausts, we had a few failures. We had some hangers pop off of the pipes and a few of the tips which we no longer sell had wall failures where the hangers were attached. We've had a few track rats burn our powdercoat off. In both instances, we took the necessary measures to not only remedy the issues for those customers, but also to improve our designs and processes to ensure that those things don't happen again. These are immediate same day changes as we evaluate design flaws and/or field failures. Most companies do not build to order, so if there is a design flaw, there is a very good chance that not only the shelf stock, but the replenishment order in process cannot be updated. In regard to the powdercoat, we upgraded our design to a high end, thermal powdercoating that is used for stoves and ovens, as well as a few higher end brands of off the shelf mufflers. The powder costs more, but we have no intention of changing the price of powdercoating.

It's not to say that we are perfect by claiming that we have the best product. Rather, we'd like to get the point across that we are the one company that will tell you everything even if it doesn't effect you. Our goal is to have our customers as much a part of the brainstorming and design process as we are.

Honestly, I'd get the axleback first. Just because there is so much variation with the options forward of that to dial the sound in to your preference. It's much easier for us if you have heard the exhaust and know if you want louder, the same, quieter, etc.

Makes sense. I assume whatever products you guys release for the sedan will fit perfectly to the axle back? Don't want to run into an issue with that. Also would like to get the most for my money. So if buying the full cat back will save me a few bucks, I may choose to do that.
