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 intakes, 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 2015 Hyundai Sonata or Kia Optima 2.4L NA and 2.0L Turbo is crucial to solving the performance driving formula.

When a car equipped with a McPherson Strut suspension system, like the 2015 Hyundai Sonata or Kia Optima 2.4L NA and 2.0L Turbo 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 transmit the load incurred by shifting weight between the two strut towers and reduce the effects of chassis flex

Unfortunately, many aftermarket strut tower braces have a hinged design and therefore offer little support to the strut towers. An effective performance strut bar, like those from AEM Intakes, must be rigid throughout its length. Additionally, many strut tower braces on the market could interfere with performance upgrades such as a cold air intake system. AEM Induction Systems has designed AEM performance strut bar, part number 29-0012C, to be compatible with AEM cold air or AEM short ram intakes for the 2015 Hyundai Sonata or Kia Optima 2.4L NA and 2.0L turbo.

An AEM performance strut bar is an excellent bolt on solution for strut tower flex in 2015 Hyundai Sonata or Kia Optima 2.4L NA and 2.0L turbo models. 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 both strut towers together. Best of all, AEM designed the 29-0012C performance strut bar with an AEM cold air intake system in mind.
