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 while cornering in the second generation 2011-2015 Scion tC is crucial to solving the performance formula.

When a car equipped with a McPherson Strut suspension system, like the second generation 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 Scion tC 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 29-0007 performance strut bar for the second generation 2011-2014 Scion tC into the equation.

An AEM performance strut bar is an excellent bolt on solution to the issue of strut tower flex in the second generation 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 Scion tC. 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. Best of all AEM designed the 29-0007 performance strut bar with an AEM cold air intake system in mind. An AEM 29-0007 performance strut bar will not interfere with the AEM cold air intake system for the second generation 2011-2014 Scion tC.

The AEM performance strut bar, number 29-0007, is designed as a bolt on chassis upgrade for the 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 Scion tC and reuses factory hardware as needed. The 29-0007 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 cold air intake system, 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 durable gunmetal gray powdercoat finish, AEM warrants that its performance strut bar for the second generation Scion tC will last for the life of your sport compact coupe.
