The Jeep Wrangler has been a long time favorite among off-road enthusiasts worldwide. The current JK platform debuted in 2007 and has been praised in the 4X4 community. For the 2012 model year, the Jeep Wrangler JK received a new 3.6-liter Pentastar VVT V6 engine.
The new 3.6L Pentastar V6 is rated at 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. Impressive numbers for the stock configuration, however, at AEM Induction Systems, intakes are engineered to outperform and part number 21-8316DS for the 2012 to 2013 Jeep Wrangler 3.6L lives up to that motto. AEM's sealed airbox intake system made an additional 14 horsepower at 5,750 RPM and an additional 13 lb-ft of torque at 5,550 RPM.
The 2013 Scion FR-S and its twin, the 2013 Subaru BRZ, are a complete rejuvenation in body and soul of the Toyota AE86 Corolla GTS, bringing a modern perspective to this classic performance car. The FR-S/BRZ delivers all of the aspects drivers loved about the AE86 and its precursors. Affordability, style, handling and additional power make the Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ a fun performance machine that's attractive from every angle.
The AEM FR-S/BRZ strut tower bar features large diameter thin wall tube for excellent strength to weight ratio. All AEM strut tower bars are a completely welded structure custom fit for each application. The strut tower bar provided additional rigidity to the strut towers while the car is driven aggressively through turns. The installation of the strut tower bar is very simple and can be performed with simple hand tools and all of the OEM mount points are retained.
In the case of the FR-S it was noted that the brake master cylinder moved significantly when the brakes were applied in competition. AEM incorporated a brake master cylinder brace onto the strut tower bar. The addition of the brace increased the brake pedal firmness and most importantly, made braking performance much more predictable. The addition of the brace also eliminates the need to purchase a separate, often expensive billet brace.
