The Aerodynamic Focus of the 2022 WRX

There are multiple categories to consider when deciding to invest in the modification of your vehicle to build more muscle and to transform its overall personality. The specific purpose of the modification is the primary factor which determines what steps should be taken first, what segment of the vehicle should be in focus, and how much of a financial investment is required to reach the goal and level that encompasses the entire plan. Amplifying the performance of a 2022 Subaru WRX requires the driver to ask important questions and examine the details carefully. Many new enthusiasts may choose to focus on the least costly components first to get their feet wet while achieving some bragging rights and unique visual effects to start their prideful journey. Others may decide to pursue changes under the hood or under the chassis focusing on enhancements that inject change through the balance of horsepower, torque, and combustion to hype a mechanical instead of a cosmetic impression.

Over a few decades, the complex science behind automotive performance engineering has taken huge leaps beyond the advancement of physical mechanics and the development and improvement of fuel to lift the potential of motorsports to new levels. Amongst all these exciting considerations, many enthusiasts overlook an understated but important science - that when combined with an innovative upgrade, can significantly boost the performance of your ride without touching the engine, the exhaust, or enhancing the fuel source. A science that is extremely critical whether you are traveling down the road or flying through the sky. Investing in the enhancement of your vehicle’s Aerodynamic Profile will not only improve your vehicle's overall performance but will also contribute to fuel efficiency, handling, and safety which will extend the car's life and endurance during any challenge. Thankfully modern engineering, design, and a few innovative manufacturers make it possible for today's Subaru enthusiast to improve performance through some amazing aftermarket products readily available at Subimods. 

What Aerodynamic Upgrades are Available?

A number of companies in today's marketplace offer innovative, well engineered solutions to improve upon the original aerodynamic design of the 2022 Subaru WRX and assist the driver in reaching their goals while taking a specific step towards improving the performance of their coveted ride. There are several products and components which have been developed to confront challenges that may directly affect how efficiently the vehicle moves through the air and over a surface while maintaining proper performance under extreme conditions. After some consultation with an experienced enthusiast or modification expert, a suggested list of components should be compiled to accurately design an aerodynamic upgrade for the WRX. This list should consist of Front Splitters , Rear Diffusers , Spoilers , and possibly include Side Skirts , Canards , and assorted Vents to complete the overall profile of the vehicle. It is important to understand how each of these components affects the physical footprint of the vehicle, what part each item plays when the vehicle moves through time and space, and what specific improvements they make in relation to overall efficiency and stability. Each component, whether used individually or in concert with the entire profile, will elevate your WRX performance and show a positive return of your investment through an overall change in the vehicle's personality.

Adding Front Splitters to the WRX platform will not only improve upon the vehicle's consumption of fuel under both normal and high performance conditions, but they will also improve and balance front and rear distribution of downforce which will stabilize handling while cornering and turning at increased speeds and constant acceleration. High speeds increase turbulence and extreme drag which can be addressed with the addition of Rear Diffusers to redirect air underneath the vehicle and further improve the aerodynamic efficiency of your WRX. A quality Rear Diffuser will efficiently redirect airflow both upward and outward while minimizing lift to stabilize the vehicle at higher speeds and create confidence under stressful driving scenarios. Investing in an appropriate Spoiler for your car, like a diffuser, will also reduce drag and amplify downforce when your WRX requires maximum performance under demanding and possibly competitive high speed driving conditions. Including Side Skirts and Canards in your upgrade will also assist in airflow management along the vehicle's sides and front bumper assembly to create additional downforce and grip while maneuvering at increased speeds. Vents that are strategically installed on the vehicle's hood or fenders also serve this upgrade to ensure proper cooling and additional brake system ventilation.
