Great product, jason. Fit and finish, no issues centering and will post a vid tomorrow.
So to fill you in on our development timeline, we're finishing out the hatch axleback, then going to work on a downpipe, which will probably have a rear resonator option, and then a midpipe if necessary.

Catless is really working against you when it comes to sound in that situation. Even a high flow cat will cut that sharp edge to the sound.

maybe its just me but i love the catless turboback on my 02. different setup than current layouts for exhaust path i know. may annoy others, but hearing my turbo whistle and that roar at full tilt is GREAT! that powerfull rumble at lower revs. one of the big reasons i love driving a subaru. anyway, really stoked for my partout/sale of the 02 and coming of the new 11 hatch! OH and development of dp/midpipe/etc from Nameless.

cutout idea to bypass muffler sounds like a very interesting idea...may be interested. something like that require a separate tune to maximize while open ya think?

Any plans for a muffler-less design that will mate up to the SPT midpipe? Not interested in an electric cutout, though.

I have a couple videos that I will post, but do ZERO justice for the actual sound. It doesn't really bother me, but it could bother the law. I don't really like the rasp, but that's about it, in-fact I think the rasp is what makes it so obnoxious. I don't know whether to get a resonator or a muffler. I'll need one soon if I want to keep these on.

Thats surprising, every video I've heard sounds smooth and rasp free.

I'm also cat-less and resonator-less. I should have known better anyways, but I'll be muffler shopping.

Any suggestions that are affordable? Wife is hating the money I've been spending on the car lately.

Nobody judges you as dumb for not having the money to spend on something like this just because you want it, so why get all butthurt at those of us who do?

Here is Mr. Rasp Tastic. I couldn't help but laugh, because it is pretty loud in person.




don't know what I should do about it. Muffler, resonator.. Suggestions?

You can try welding in either a vibrant or magnaflow resonator. Might cut down some rasp, but its still gonna be pretty loud.

I don't mind the loud part, it's the rasp and the rifle shots that are annoying and may annoy the law. That does look like an option..

Add a cat. That's the best bet.

YouTube - 2011 WRX STG 2 Cat-less DP, Nameless Axleback- 1

I was interested in these before hearing that video, because that sounds awful right there....

Question though, if I'm running 2011 wrx hatch with cobb CATTED downpipe and stock midpipe, would I still have the same rasp issues with the namesless hatch axleback?

Thanks

No, you won't. I'm essentially straight pipes(no cats, resonator,and muffler)and I should have known better. I'll post another vid once I get it fixed.

Yeah, I saw you ended up coming to the dark side... I just never have understood that whole "justify your actions to a total stranger or your dumb" thing that happens on teh interwebz.

Bought a set fram Jason last night myself! Looking forward to hearing it, as well as seeing some dyno numbers once you get them posted up.

^^^I hear you and understand. But as i discussed with jason during our 30 min convo. i wasn't trying to get people to convince me to buy it i was trying to have people give me a real reason as to buy it other then " oh it sounds cool". There are plenty great reasons that this product is to be purchased and when someone says "why spend $300 on noise "and the best answer is " cause they are mad tyte yo and sound under sweet" its kinda defeating the purpose behind the engineering. Thats all I was doing and jason and i think one other person say where i was going with it.

Yeah that's a good point that needs to be recognized. I've heard a lot of components that can sound great in configuration A sound poor in configuration B. Our goals are to design comprehensive systems that work well and sound right. As we are developing the midpipe and the downpipe we are taking these concepts into consideration. We have two customers in Seattle who are interested in having us develop the downpipe and midpipe options on their Sedan and Hatch respectively, and plan on working on that in the next few weeks.

I have no doubt that our systems are going to sound great.
