Default Nameless performance vs Invidia?

Nameless performance turboback vs Invidia Turboback

Invidia TBE catted dp ~ $1200
Weighs more because of the mufflers

Nameless performance TBE catted dp ~ $1500
weighs less because of no mufflers

Both are great quality but what's the real difference?

I hear this for every single exhaust "it's not obnoxiously loud, no drone, and still sounds aggressive on WOT" and I feel like it's pretty biased...

I'm wondering which one of these will be louder or aggressive sounding?


I currently have the NP axleback, but I can go with a new invidia TBE for the same price of getting the rest of the parts from NP.

Has anyone heard both NP and Invidia?
And what about STG 2 gains?

I'm guessing the nameless performance will be louder since there is no mufflers. Do you already try to YouTube them to see which you prefer.

Both make great products. However, Nameless' downpipe has been dyno proven to be potentially the Best one on the market for our cars.

They baseline an STi with Cobb OTS stage 1+ AEM and when they added their TBE and went Cobb stage 2, showed gains of 34whp and 52wtq. That is staggering considering if you compare NP gains to the 'typical' gains shown by Cobbs website when going stage 2 with other brands.

Meanwhile, they also did dynos of the stage 1+ AEM w/stock exhaust and their catback exhaust, and their catback alone made 21whp and 32wtq...

The NP guys said as well that there is immense room to increase power, the Cobb tunes just aren't that aggressive or bring out the full potential of NP's products either. A protune would show how great their products really are.

I got the Q300, and I can say that there is a bit more drone, but definitely nothing crazy. Not a headache inducer, i can drive with this in the mornings...

It's perfect sound in the cabin, it sounds very rumbley with windows down. The GF says she can't hear it that much while driving behind me, so I think that's perfect!

Nameless has more R&D in my opinion and it is supper aggressive sounding. If I was you I would finish it with the nameless exhaust assuming you like your axlebacks.

Btw their downpipe is fantastic.

I have had both and I now have the invidia Q300 on my car. The nameless is very loud.

Q300 is resonated w/ mufflers and the NP has no mufflers...its pretty obvious OP which one is going to be louder.

Both are great exhausts, I'm going to be ordering a Q300 for my car though as I really like how the SS tips of the Q300 look damn near factory.

You can get mufflers on the nameless and they are so customizable. Really built to order, great customer service.

After having the Q300 V2 for the hatch I'm going to nameless and selling my barely used Q300. Way to much drone on the hatch. It sounds very deep and sporty, but daily driving it is a headache.
