It already has the SPT/STI accessory exhaust on it.

No it does NOT have the Factory STI Sport Exhaust on it. At least the 2019 Series.Gray did not, and since it is the same Type RA Motor, Intake and Exhaust as the 2019 and 2018 Type RA, I would suspect the same to be true. I believe the OP was asking about the STI Sport Exhaust or as some still hold onto the SPT version. SPT no longer exists. The brand was killed in 2017 officially and was only ever used because of copy rights issues in the USA that expired in 2017. At any rate. It might have to do with tuning issues, but I am more likely to say they just were not selling as well as they liked, and the price asked for what you got was not very consumer friendly. Don't take that the wrong way because for me Fit and Quality are second to none with OEM STI performance parts, period. I would purchase their bits over any third party 99% of the time. they may come out with a revised catalogue later this year, they do that some times. that being said just order the part from a 2018, it will fit fine. I did notice that My Cobb Turbo Back Exhaust had a much tighter fit on my Series.Gray than on my 2018 STI, so they could have changed a couple of hanger placements slightly to accommodate the NEW IMPROVED Exhaust, but I can not confirm this.

I said that it did because when I shopped for axleback from Nameless and others for the 18, they specify that "15-18 versions do not fit SPT/STI exhaust or 2019 STIs. They sell the same axleback parts for both of those fitments.

A 2015+ cat back exhaust is compatible but if you are just installing an axle back for example the muffler deletes they are slightly different on 2019. So, if you can find a second hand SPT/STI catback it should work just fine.

Skylinekin is correct. As for why you can not buy an Axel Back from Nameless and they ask if you had the STI Sport Exhaust is that the Y Pipe design is COMPLETELY different than Stock Factory Exhaust. It is a Three Bolt Triangular design versus a two bolt standard pipe flange design. Also As Skylinekin stated 2019 Stock Factory design is also different from the 2018 Type RA as well as all 2019 STI. The Y Pipe is now .25" larger in diameter, thus axel back exhaust also will not work without drilling out the holes slightly, and would not be optimal from a flow perspective.

Anyone know if the Japanese STI performance muffler will fit? I know it's a completely different engine but maybe its the same fitment from the catback?

Also, the s209 mufflers might be an option once they release part #s

I'm fairly certain that the JDM STI "sport" performance mufflers will not fit the '18 RA & '19 STI midpipe. You could either purchase a '15-18 midpipe and potentially sacrifice a bit of power or go with a nameless resonated midpipe which is 3" and is compatible with the factory mufflers.

Ajsti24 had the older version of the JDM sport exhaust (ST44300VV010 vs ST44300VV030) and it didn't fit his '18 RA midpipe:

I was also going to wait to see if the S209 mufflers would be available until I heard a sound clip. IMO, the S209 exhaust still sounds more neutered than the JDM STI sport mufflers.

S209 Mufflers is already available as a JDM STi Performance exhaust kit(same kit from S207/S208) downside it comes with the same midpipe from the RA and 19's STi. I asked japanparts if i can order the rear mufflers only, they said it is sold as a whole catback set.
