AMS Performance has created one of the largest and most efficient top mount intercoolers in the industry which is proven by the amazing response we are seeing from our customers. During the first part of our Top Five presentation, Nick Nazzaro speaks about how this new product from AMS has shined brilliantly for the aftermarket consumer. "The AMS top mount intercooler is a new release for AMS. They've been very, very good about promoting and designing new products for the VB platform.", Nazzaro confirms. "They have their intake, they have shift knobs, brake lines - take your pick - but, they've started getting into the force induction side which is really what AMS is known for.", he said. "They did this bar and plate top mount intercooler...a massive core that boasts some really impressive statistics. The car gets extremely hot. Air temps get hot. Performance is degraded." Nazzaro explains. "What you would experience on the track for any of our autocross...time attack guys who are really looking to keep that top mount intercooler and not have any lag from moving the core down into the front of the car." Look for this amazing product that now sits in the Subimods catalog for under $700. A quality product, an amazing upgrade, and a great price.

NUMBER 4: Molded Innovations EvoGlow Series DynamicLume LED Tail Lights

One company who offers products that get a lot of attention through our catalog searches and customer communications is Molded Innovations . The Subimods team was not surprised to see them leap into the number four slot in May with their EvoGlow Series DynamicLume LED Tail Lights . This product has really proven to be a popular choice for the Subaru enthusiast since it has hit the marketplace as one of the most innovative and groundbreaking LED lighting solutions for the 2022 Subaru WRX platform.

This series offers a number of options not found on the factory WRX setup including the overall warm up and shut off sequences, and the "F1 Pulse'' setting for the center brake lights which are turned off by default, but are designed to be used in motorsports applications.

NUMBER 3: LP Aventure 2" Powder Coated Lift Kit

Crawling with confidence into the coveted third position is LP Aventure with their 2" Powder Coated Lift Kit, This product appearance on the May Top Five might make the track-loving 2022 Subaru WRX driver take an expected double take, but will certainly put a smile on those Subaru owners who don't think that their favorite brand, whether a WRX or Outback, should be restricted to a highway drive or a race around the summer hot pavement. LP Aventure brings in a product offering that targets the enthusiast who wishes to give their WRX a more aggressive, all-wheel drive look with 2 inches of ground clearance for more adventurous experiences. This stainless steel lift kit was manufactured from 304 stainless material, TIG welded for extreme durability, stability, and strength while remaining incredibly corrosion resistant. LP provides a welcome offset design which retains the specifications of the factory camber to ensure proper vehicle alignment. This lift kit also provides multi link spacers which lower the rear subframe of the WRX and again holds true to the original alignment specifications to keep the car's handling in check, keep the factory positioning of the rear wheels, and prevent rubbing when larger wheels and tires are the desired upgrade. Also, to make sure your brake line configuration remains solid, this kit includes alternative, elongated brake line spacers to ensure the easiest installation and no replacing of the vehicle's factory brake lines. Lastly, LP provides longer exhaust hangers to adapt to the requirements of both a single and/or a dual exhaust assembly. Again, to give more of a broad overview of this product and its position on the list, Nick Nazzaro comments on how LP Aventure has become a wanted item by the Subaru tribe. "LP Aventure came on board as we moved into the kind of consumer who wants to take a different route through performance.", Nazzaro explains. "It's all performance. It's all upgrading, but a little bit different of a path. LP Adventure...They've been a great partner of ours.", he adds. "We're forecasting to see a lot more of this on the line card. so we really wanted to make sure the people who...wanted to raise their WRX got a view of what's available." , Nazzaro confirms. "There's a lot more to this kit...this is their Powder-coated version. They do offer you about 2 inches of increased height, allow you to run your method 1552 - little bit smaller rims, nice knobby tire." he explains. "We actually have a lot of customers doing this. Truthfully, I think it's great. I think it's something that goes back to the heritage of Subaru. Getting off-road. Really enjoying the car. LP is definitely one to look at if you want your Subaru to go up." If you are an enthusiast who is looking for more of a lift than a lowered performer, check out the LP Aventure products on the Subimods website which should provide some guidance down this alternative path. 

NUMBER 2: COBB Front and Rear Lowering Spring Kit

As we move along, you will see how the theme has switched from the customer's desire to raise their vehicle, to them needing a solution which will bring them closer to the pavement. One company that keeps proving its worth in the hearts of Subaru enthusiasts in a number of areas is COBB Tuning. Their technological innovations, close work with motorsports, and keen attention to what interests the true performance junkie has brought them to the forefront of the industry. We have recently featured their offerings in other areas of performance, but to align with their diverse skill set, we are happy to see a suspension component from their arsenal slide into the second slot on May's Top Five list. COBB's Front and Rear Lowering Spring Kit. Whether we accept it or not, the factory designed posture of the 2022 Subaru WRX platform was designed for the everyday driver that has an eye for style and a little stock performance muscle. The Subaru modifier is not the typical consumer. They have extreme ideas that require their vehicle to be seriously reactive, steady, and to have cat-like flexibility on both the road or track. COBB's kit offers the 2022 Subaru WRX a well-engineered, lowered stance that provides both superior handling, a very strong aesthetic, and stunning visual attraction. In addition, your WRX will gain enhanced braking ability after installing this kit, plus the center of gravity will be lowered to allow faster cornering and confident track performance. As the video presentation continues, Nazzaro adds his thoughts regarding a repeat appearance of COBB on our Top Five. "COBB has really made some efforts in the last few years to diversify their line card following the green speed update.", Nazzaro confirms. "You've seen a lot of sway bars. You've seen a lot of interior and exterior accessories. This is their expansion for the VB.", he explains. "So, in one shot, they release the front and rear sway bars and their lowering springs. What we like primarily about the COBB...they took the time to actually get the car to sit exactly level.", Nick adds. "What you'll find in a lot of Subarus and a lot of Subaru offerings for lowering springs - the drop is 1 inch in the front and one inch in the rear. Naturally when you lower that, the car is misaligned. You have the front sitting higher than the rear vice versa.", he exclaims. "COBB took the time to ensure that you're going to get 1 1/4 inches in the front and 2 inches in the rear to really balance the look of the vehicle," Nazzaro confirms. "This is a great product at a great price from COBB. When you combine, you can get their sway bars and the springs together in a nice little package." If you have a serious and specific performance vision for your car and seek to lower your WRX, take advantage of some great engineering, get on the Subimods website , and look into COBB's popular offerings .

NUMBER 1: Remark R1-Spec Full Titanium Catback Exhaust

Closing out May's Top Five brings us face to face with Remark , the California company that has become an iconic staple in motorsports and a brand which is beginning to vibrate a lot of respect throughout the Subaru community. This reverence is obvious within our customer base since one of their premiere exhaust products designed for the 2022 Subaru WRX has jumped into the throne at the number one position for May. Remark's R1-Spec Full Titanium Catback Exhaust was designed to amplify the spirit of the performance-craving Subaru enthusiast while keeping their best interests in clear focus. This smartly-engineered exhaust is constructed with 3" mandrel bent piping , and designed to provide the highest possible flow through its straight profile. The R1-Spec layout delivers an optimal flow which reduces restriction and maintains efficient performance. This is the perfect Catback exhaust system for the WRX-loving enthusiast who dreams of extreme flow, a light weight high-grade titanium structure, hand-crafted construction supported by innovative engineering, and the highest quality that aligns with a solid brand. Remark continually brings their commitment to the performance driver by executing product designs that are multi-faceted serving both the daily driver who can't wait to hit the highway and the expert track addict that doesn't want Monday to arrive. Nazzaro concludes his review of May's Top Five by adding his insights regarding the Remark product and the quickness of its popularity with Subimod's customers. "We actually got this a few weeks ago and it's already taken its place at the top of the leaderboard.", Nazzaro said with pride. "It's their full titanium exhaust, so, if you've been familiar with the Remark line before you've known they've had the R1 spec which is a bit of a hybrid.", he confirms. "The muffler section is titanium. The mid pipe is stainless steel. This is their take on a full titanium.", he adds. "This is 16 lb. Catback with the resonator. A little less without it."  The beautiful part about Remark is they took the time to look at it and say, ‘All right, how do we make the strongest most functional Catback?’.", Nazzaro explains. "There aren't slip joints on this. It's a flange system and there's also a single bent pipe right for the mid pipe. They are not looking to have pie cuts. They are not looking to have brakes in the mid pipe.", he said while confirming its quality. "This system is not actually going to break the bank. You're looking at $1395.00 right now for the resonated system. That is an amazing deal for what you're getting here.", he confirms. "So, for anyone interested in a single exit for the VB - take a look at the Remark."
