AEM Enhances Honda Civic and Civic Si Handling with Performance Strut Tower Brace

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 engine power in the Honda Civic and Civic Si is crucial to solving the performance formula..

When a car equipped with a McPherson Strut suspension system, like the 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011 Honda Civic or Civic Si, 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 strut tower brace will transmit 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 braces available have a hinged design and therefore offer little support to the strut towers. An effective strut tower brace, like those from AEM, must be rigid throughout its length. Additionally, many of the strut tower braces on the market could interfere with performance upgrades such as a cold air intake system. This is where AEM Induction Systems factors part number 29-0002 performance strut tower brace for the 2006-2011 Honda Civic and Civic Si into the equation.

AEM performance strut bars are an excellent bolt on solution to the issue of strut tower flex in the 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011 Civic or Civic Si. AEM performance strut tower braces are 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. Best of all AEM designed the 29-0002 performance strut bar with an AEM cold air intake system in mind. AEM performance strut tower braces will not interfere with the AEM cold air intake system for the 2006-2011 Honda Civic or Civic Si..
