Most car or truck enthusiasts picture a cold air intake system when they hear the name AEM. AEM Induction Systems has made great headway and built its reputation on cold air induction systems, but since 1987 Advanced Engine Management (AEM) has been in the business of improving performance. More power is only one aspect of the driving equation. Being able to properly control horsepower in the all-wheel drive, turbocharged, and intercooled 2015 Subaru WRX 2.0L or WRX STi 2.5L is crucial to solving the performance equation.
When a car equipped with a McPherson Strut suspension system, like the 2015 Subaru WRX 2.0L or WRX STi 2.5L, is being driven through a turn there is inherent flex in the strut towers and chassis. It’s not uncommon to experience as much as 1/8” of shift in the strut towers during hard cornering. This flex can result in unpredictable handling of the car. An effectively designed performance strut bar will transfer the load incurred by shifting weight between the two strut towers and reduce the effects of chassis flex.
Unfortunately, many of the aftermarket strut tower bars available have a hinged design and therefore offer little support to the strut towers. An effective performance strut bar, like those from AEM, must be rigid throughout its length. Additionally, many of the strut tower bars on the market could interfere with performance upgrades such as a cold air intake system. This is where AEM Induction Systems factors the performance strut bar for the 2015 Subaru WRX 2.0L and WRX STi 2.5L into the equation.
An AEM performance strut bar is an excellent bolt on solution to the issue of strut tower flex in the 2015 Subaru WRX 2.0L and 2015 WRX STi 2.5L. An AEM performance strut bar is constructed using thin wall mild steel tubing for a good strength to weight ratio. They are built with a rigid design to effectively tie the two strut towers together.
The AEM performance strut bar for 2015 Subaru WRX 2.0L and 2015 WRX STi 2.5L models is designed as a bolt on suspension upgrade for the 2015 WRX or 2015 WRX STi and reuses OEM mounting hardware. The 29-0011WR performance strut bar will work with the factory intake system and is guaranteed to work with an AEM Cold Air Intake System. As with an AEM CAI, an AEM performance strut bar is designed to last for the life of your vehicle. Constructed in the U.S.A with high quality mild steel, and protected with a wrinkle red durable powdercoat finish, AEM warrants that its performance strut bar will last for the life of your 2015 Subaru WRX or 2015 Subaru WRX STi.

No fighting or adjusting with this bar. No worry about flex in the joints as you do with other bars. Nice and solid as a strut bar should be. Night and day difference at the track when installed.
Looks great, fits even better!
Easiest install ever! Very happy with the final look, matched the Perrin Radiator shroud perfectly!
Went in great and looks great in the STI combined with Perrin belt guard and AEM intake with red pipe.
