Ordering a new axle back this Black Friday and need help deciding between ets or nameless. I'm leaning towards getting the nameless 4" muffler staggered with 3.5 tips and double wall or the ets muffled with the chrome tips.

I don't know much about ETS, but I think nameless has a pretty good handle on their axle back exhausts. I rarely hear complaints.

They are both quality parts. The only thing i noticed is that the ets ones have nicer bends and i think they uses larger piping as well.

Nameless is nice, but ets is top notch fit, finish, and build. I wouldn't get anything nameless besides the exhaust with the 5" cans. Nameless muff deletes and 4" cans, can really start sounding like a rice burner fast.

With nameless you can order what you want, with ets they are not that I recall.

is it true the ets produces more drone? I'm also planning on adding a down pipe later in the future

I've had both. Both are very nice. The Nameless looks better with 4" tips. If you plan on going with the 3" tips on the nameless, I'd pass, it looks cheap.

Did you have a favorite one over the other? And how's the drone on ets compared to nameless

Keep in mind here that I have an STi, not a WRX, so it may differ if you have an FA, but there's basically no drone when it's just an axle-back.

Once you switch to a catback, however, resonator and mufflers are a must or it's drone city.

I currently have the ETS "Quiet" catback, with the midpipe resonator. It still drones a good bit.

Yes.

Be advised the blue will fade if you use any kind of metal polish, etc. on them. Made that mistake when I bought a Q300. That's why I went stainless this time around.
