We are Nameless Performance, Inc.
We are here to make Legacy parts and chew bubble gum, but we're all out of gum.
As eBay and the internet provide a flood of overseas products into enthusiast hands, paired with little to no customer service, customer involvement or qualification, it became evident to us that a radical alternative was necessary. As enthusiasts of pretty much everything mechanical, we have had very few experiences with manufacturers that were as personal and connected as we would prefer. So we decided to make that company a reality. When discussing what to call this company, it was evident that using our names or some pairing of hyperbole and motorsports catch phrases was not going to convey anything about us or our customers or why we do what we do. So why not put out a name that begs a question.
Sure, our name is a sardonic poke-in-the-eye at the no name flood of go-fast parts and $400 turbo kits that are for sale everywhere but nobody ever seems to be running. It’s also a road sign to what drives the company – the company is made up of not just us, but the names and faces of all of our customers, vendors and associates who participate in the development process and drive us to make the best parts possible for their vehicles.
In stark contrast to the other guys, we’re a proud and self proclaimed home shop industry. Our facilities are on the property of one of the owners in a 36×48 two story pole building. Our two machine shops are a stones throw away in similar circumstances – in a garage and in a home workshop. That’s who we are. We’ve realized that we don’t need to pay rent in some oversized cubicle farm of a business park in order to do what we want and succeed at making products that our customers want.
“From start to finish we intend to include our customers as an integral part of the process.“
Our goal is not only to make our design, validation and qualification process an open book, but to also equip our customers with the tools to contribute and participate in these activities. We intend to bring our customers right into the shop (whether at design events, video webcasts or forum discussions), into the heart of our business. From start to finish we intend to include our customers as an integral part of the process. Every other Tuesday night we try to host and open house where we work on an in-house project or two, help a few friends with installs, and talk shop.
It’s obvious to us that any enthusiast worth their salt isn’t satiated by bolt on products for long – in no time we all want to start doing it our own way.
For this reason, it’s our intention at Nameless to provide not only performance parts, but a variety of fabrication tooling and automation systems for other shops. A major reason why we are so interested in building tools and automation systems is because we always love to find the right tools for the job. When we find something remarkable, we share it are always willing to put in some extra effort to demonstrate what we’ve learned even if it is outside the scope of our product line. We hope that you’ll be pleasantly surprised at what a performance parts manufacturer can be when it involves customers at every step of the way.
Some of you may already be familiar with our work on the WRX/STI platform, as well as the BRZ/FR-S more recently, but now we have decided to expand out to the Legacy market. Our plans are to release a full TBE for 4th+ gen Legacies, for both sedan and wagon configuration, as well as auto and manual. We also would like to do an uppipe with the option for EWG, a good TMIC solution, an intake, maybe even a FMIC kit.
As of right now, we do have an axleback exhaust that was designed to fit the 05-09 LGT sedan available, but we will have more to come. Just wanted to take the time to introduce ourselves
But now, we want to hear from you. What things would you like us to address in this market? What parts would you like to see in the near(ish) future?
