The sound will change over time because the packing will break down.

The welds may crack.

The tubing will be thin walled, and will be prone to cracking because of heat. It happened on a cheap downpipe I have.

You spent a lot of money on a good car, why skimp out now?

This is not a cheap knockoff... I recieved the same exhaust for my 2011 wrx sedan yesterday. The company is called Nameless Performance, they're in vancouver Washington, and its not expensive because for 1. its just an axleback.. and 2. Its made in the US and not overseas like most other companies selling exhaust, so theres very little cost for the guys to make the exhaust. The welds are Tig welded, 304SS mandrel bent tubing, what more do you want?? In my opinion they were of incredible quality and great craftsmanship.

Sooo, you can pay $1050 for the SPT catback, or buy Nameless' axleback for 300, then their midpipe for 500, soo its an ~$800 catback exhaust of great quality.. you only save a couple hundred bucks, but its not because they are poor quality. Ill be honest its the best sounding exhaust ive ever heard.

Check, your prices again they are charging 900 for sedan cbe. I agree spt blows. This is priced right along with all the other cbe available for this car, no mufflers but much better materials(np).

The spt on the sedan sounded good to me but it is to far recessed in the bumper. The looks of the exhaust is important to me too. Another reason I wanted to sell my np. I didn't like the empty space where you could see behind the tips. Looked like something was "missing." Also this guy at the meet had that spt on his sedan and it turned a goldish color?

Sorry for the stupid question but I didn't find the answer in the 43 pages of this thread. Will the nameless axleback bolt up to my spt midpipe ? I love my spt but find it to drone and be very boomy at low rpms. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

Not sure, if it doesn't hit me up. I've got a stock midpipe/y pipe I'll sell you cheap. Not sure where your located though.

I placed my order on Monday and within a few hours I already received tracking notification on the exhaust from UPS. I selected ground and Nameless was able to get it out same day and I'll receive it on Friday at 10am... that means I'll get it on after work on Friday!

Excellent customer service from these guys and I'm sure as is their product.

And coming from an American V8 RWD car all of my friends were giving me crap for not buying American... well, at least the exhaust is made in the USA!

well, it won't gurgle like the WRX/STI. I suspect it won't sound anything like what you have heard so far

Really?

that "gurgle" or boxer sound that you are used to hearing is because of the unequal length headers that we have. Truth be told, usually the N/A subarus have a more pronounced "gurgle" because as you see below they have the craziest exhaust runners known to imprezas.

Obviously you can just remove the muffler and drive it around the block to see how you like the sound. It has been referenced many times that really is the equivalent sound of the NP axle back (sedan).

If we were to label a N/A subaru as being rice because of a loud exhaust, I think we would be relatively justified based on the low function of the axle back on a N/A car (other than noise control). But then again this whole thread is based on removing our mufflers and gooing over the noise the car makes.

Sorry if I was a little too pragmatic.

I would think it would sound raspier and louder due to the fact that the obstruction (turbo) isn't there to provide some muffling. Purely speculation on my part. Like he^ said pull your muffler off and test it out.

I'm debating whether to order the midpipe section, or keep stock midpipe for now and order their downpipe. Same price, but one allows me to go stage2+ ...


decisions decisions.

Damn, that downpipe looks freakin niiiiice. I love the idea of divorcing the wastegate and merging post cat, giving the wastegate flow less backpressure which should help control boost spike/overboost.

Why is the Nameless downpipe $599? This Invidia is only $299. What's the difference?

http://www.rallysportdirect.com/Invi...rced-Wastegate
For starters, that one from Invidia is catless, which cuts about ~$200 off the cost. You chould be comparing it to THIS Invidia DP (http://www.rallysportdirect.com/Invi...rced-Wastegate)

See above post that I quoted, there is a bit more piping, man hours, development there due to the additional wastegate tube, this should really reduce turbulence and help smooth the delivery a bit.

Quote:
The wastegate dumps directly toward the outlet of the turbocharger. Turbulence bad. Simple answer. Our divorced design separates the two systems until downstream where they can be nicely reintroduced to one another without impacting the flow of the main circuit of the downpipe. Short answer.
(from an explanation on their Facebook page)

I was really impressed by the prototype I saw in person. Note the expansion section so the wastegate gasses won't crack welds over time too.
