RALLY Skid Plate for 2015-2021 Subaru STI
This aluminum skid plate is a direct fit for your 2015+ Subaru STI. It replaces the OEM plastic splash guard panel which offers little protection and generally has many problems. It offers built-in trap doors for both oil drain plug and oil filter. Unlike many splash shields and skid plates on the market, this also offers ventilation as well as complete side brackets for additional support. It comes with new hardware - especially important as this goes ALL THE WAY to your front bumper and doesn't stop at the radiator support - it will replace the stock push clips with speed nuts and bolts. This will give your STI support on the front bumper while maintaining optimal air channeling under the vehicle with this aluminum splash shield. Specifically designed with the rally enthusiast in mind, this skid plate is built to protect your vehicle under the heaviest and most aggressive activities in your car.

Side brackets and front panel are 1/16"
Installation Hardware is Included with each aluminum splash shield - It will replace the plastic clips on the bumper with a more permanent solution using bolts and speed nuts
- MADE OF .19 (3/16") ALUMINUM - only slightly heavier than stock (by ~ 1 lb) but hard aluminum resistant to denting and splitting

With all the Different manufacturers of skid plates, it was hard to pick up the best one. My Subaru friends suggested many different brands, I heard mixed things about the skid plate and this company. I’ve watched many YouTube videos I have all the various plates, even the one about this company. The video I saw the plate like a beat up, and was made in someone’s garage. But I like the style of it. So I took a gamble and bought this one, it arrived in excellent condition, it looks great, and is really well-made. I could not be any happier! Although there are no instructions for this product, there are somewhat informative videos out there. If I ever had to buy this plate it again, I definitely would!
if you have invidia equal length wrapped headers on a 17 sti, you will need to add small spacers or washers between plate and chassis to clear. you wont be able to use the side fin on passenger side as the o2 sensor is in the way. you can probly custom it to fit by drilling a large hole, but then it would defeat the purpose of the fin anyway(i might just cut to fit anyway). the driver side fin needs to be bent more to make it fit, but i left it off because it uses the ground wire bolt and i dont want my headers possibly introduced to the ground making it redundant( I might just cut it in half to still keep rock out). shipping bent a corner but a hammer took that out(it is just a skid plate).
I ordered this skid plate to replace the plastic undertray on my 2019 STI after driving over a tire and the tire destroying the plastic undertray. The skid plate arrived and during shipping had punctured through from the inside of the box. The skid plate was marred somewhat but did not reveal bare metal and did not hinder installation. It's a heavy piece and should be provide great protection for the underside, beneath the engine.
