Stoked - Nameless exhaust ordered

I have a 2014 pearl white BRZ that is 3 weeks old.

I just placed my order for a Nameless 2.5" Axelback and high flow cat package. I went with 5" mufflers and a resonator. I added the resonator because I will eventually add their header and a tune once I feel like voiding my warranty or it expires.

I missed their current production round and will take delivery in early June.

Cannot wait!

I will post back with results after install.

Here is my stock auto:


So much fun.

Nice. I ordered my nameless axleback on 4/11 and they are still making it. The wait is killing me!

The headers sound like they can take even longer. It's cool though - there are plenty of other things to add in the meantime

Don't hold your breath, you'll be waiting at least 3 months before Nameless will even start building your exhaust. I wouldn't recommend them - they need to have better communication with their customers and better delivery times.

I was in the same boat last summer for same exhaust, waiting for delivery a few weeks seemed like forever, but they actually showed up earlier than expected and the quality and sound has been well worth it.

Their communication has been very good in my experience. They quickly answer any inquiries I have. I didnt end up buying anything though.

Yeah I ordered my axle back on 4/02 and it still says awaiting fulfillment so apparently they didn't start building it yet.

I can't wait though, it'll fill out those cutouts and sound good.

If it takes a while that's fine, cause I like to support companies that produce good quality products and involve the community

The videos on YouTube I find to be pretty sparse and low quality if you do find them, but do their headers make the car raspy or negatively affect the sound?

I've heard the exact exhaust that I've ordered in person and I love it.

Want full exhaust, but don't want the sound to be negatively affected

I was at the very bottom of the waiting queue when I put in my order for a catted/resonated fp/op from them. 6 weeks. That's a month and a half. When I got the email update that my order's build queue had come up, it was about a week or less till the package arrived (about 2 days after I got the email notification about it being shipped... tracked with sign-for-delivery).

They are VERY responsive to questions and will take the time to explain things. It will take a while from when you put in your order, but if you call or email to ask where things are in how long to wait till it is starting to be built, you'll get an honest answer. They don't leave you hanging.

And the wait is worth it.

If I hadn't gone with headers as well, I'd have gone with the 5" axlebacks as well. However, I needed a quieter exhaust than that. I think I went a little too quiet with the q300, but it's not so quiet that I'm going to immediately switch it out for something else. Maybe if nameless gets a 2.5" catback going (b/c I no longer have the stock midpipe, so axlebacks won't hook up to invidia's q300 midpipe) for a good price, I will. But they've said they aren't interested since straightening the stock midpipe doesn't give enough appreciable gains for it to matter, thus not worth the effort on their part. In that, I'd agree. But... it would have been nice. Oh well... *shrug*

Anyway, the point is that you're wrong. They have excellent communication with their customers. Sure they may be a bit slow on email response, but just give the shop a call during business hours and you'll get a live someone on the line (usually Ryan) who can tell you what's up with what. And their delivery times are excellent as well. It's not overnight air (that'd be way too expensive), but they use good ground delivery and it gets to you in a reasonable time for ground shipment. FedEx may not be AS good as UPS, but that doesn't mean they suck. As far as the wait time from order input to it getting built, they are a very small shop that builds to order and they have become very popular, not just with 86's, but with AWD subies, and other vehicles. To keep the chaos down and to make sure that they have the parts they need, they do things in batches. Your order is on a first-come-first-serve with respect to the batches, and if they have that batch open when you order that part, it'll go in line and you may have your part very shortly. For most of us, we have to wait for that batch to come up in the queue. It helps ensure their quality.

TL;DR version: don't bitch

Just installed this exact package (Nameless FP/OP combo with high flow cat, axleback with 5" mufflers and resonator) about 2 weeks ago. I'm absolutely loving it. Build time was reasonable from order to delivery (3-4 weeks, I think) and the quality was absolutely top notch.

It's on the stock header at the moment, but I ordered an OpenFlash UEL header that will go on as soon as it arrives.

Here's a video comparison from stock to full Nameless to make the wait even harder.


The only tricky part of the install was raising the engine a couple inches to get the clearance to get the overpipe out. We had the car on a two post lift, put a tall 2-ton jack under the front of the transmission, and dropped the car until it lifted the engine. It took several tries because the engine would only go up an inch or two before it started lifting the car off the front pads of the lift, which made me pretty uncomfortable. Eventually we got enough clearance to get the overpipe out and the new FP/OP combo pipe in, though.
