Borla or nameless performance axelback

I was in the market for the Borla axleback when the catback version came up for sale I had someone pick up for $375 (total steal!). Even the catback wasn't that much louder than stock, but still had more bass at lower RPMs especially on the first drive. A week later, the car virtually sounds stock-ish to me.

Point is, the catback isn't that loud, and the axleback is known to be even tamer. Although from the videos I've seen on Youtube, the cold start of the axleback appears louder in almost all the videos I've heard vs the axleback, but after that, the axleback isn't that much louder than stock. Like borderline "is this even worth it" territory.

I can't comment a ton of the Nameless, but video to video, it's about the same as the Borla catback in terms of sound level, maybe a touch more. Not much at all, if that though.

I see a lot of Borla axlebacks go up for sale though. I'm glad I didn't end up with one - I think people get them thinking they'll be tame, but still make enough of a volume increase... and then they're too tame.

I'd edge towards the Nameless if you're going for axlebacks only. Don't discount going for a full catback though. The install isn't that much harder and you can find one used most likely as there are a lot more floating around.

Just my 2 cents. It's really hard to give opinions on exhausts because everyone has a different volume level they're shooting for.

I also consider the Borla S-type catback. You are right, after some time you get used to it. I will get whenever I get a deal for one of these 3 options (axle or cat). Borla catback was around $650 on amazon last year and now itís over a grand. Will see

Don't want to open a new thread. MY car is a 2019 and for the catback install, most likely I will be able to use the hardware when a penetrating lube is used. In case, I will need any of the hardware, are the below parts the correct ones?

Donut gasket: 44022AA123 here
Exhaust spring: 44044AA010 here
Exhaust bolt: 44059AA010 here
Exhaust nuts: 802008270 here

Thanks

That's them; though I doubt you'll need to replace all of that, donut gasket sure.
I've reused all of that hardware numerous times outside of stripping one of the bolts not paying attention.

I have the Fujitsubo Authorize S and I love it. It's only a step up from stock in terms of loudness but it's a more developed tone unlike the stock muffler that sounded like it was coughing. And Fujitsubo probably made the STi sport muffler for this car so bonus JDM points. It's really how the car should've sounded from the factory.
