I know this is a weird request, but here goes: I was curious if someone in the Bay Area that has the Nameless 5" muffler axle-back exhausts that I could borrow for an afternoon to see if this is something I should purchase for my car. Nameless performance doesn't offer returns if the product has been installed, and I'd rather not buy and resell immediately if I don't like it. Lunch is on me!

Feel free to PM or reply to the thread. I'd love your input :smile2:

I have the Nameless muffler deletes on mine. I can't take them off, but I could take you for a ride if you want to meet up. I'm in the east bay.

Thanks @marvzz but I was looking for the muffled version of the axle-backs :)
No problem. If you're worried about the sround, the deletes are actually pretty quiet vs what you would think they sound like. Very subtle, no droning

I had the nameless deletes and found they made just a little drone at 65mph on the freeway, and it was too annoying. Hoping the muffler version is more subtle.

I haven't noticed that at all on mine. There are certain times when you do hear it more in the cabin, but I've never had a drone that was noticeable to me. It might be because I'm rarely at 65 and that might be a threshold or I used to have a WRX with a full exhaust and just deaf to it now...

As a DJ, I thought I'd be numb to quiet noises, except it turns out I am ultra-sensitive to them. Put it in S# and it gets quieter, but any hills or in-town acceleration and drone returns and it's the same 2k RPM pitch. I'm hoping to hear a duller difference with the muffled version.

Why nameless? Why not go with a cat back with much less drone?
money and interest for me. nameless axleback was like $200 i think and i was just starting to get into car mods and aftermarket parts .there's not much for my 19 on the market yet. rallitek has springs i installed. a few others make off road fun parts. excited to see whats available in a few years. ill go cat back.

@Tomasro
i do notice a drone at 65. i also have giant all terrain tires that drone so i feel your pain. its not very loud to me but it is noticeable. i dont have anything to compare it to outside of stock which sounds like bleh. my other subi is an 06 tribeca that has very quiet everything.
