    I have tried everything on my Energy swaybar bushings over the years. Only one thing works for me -- clean off all the lube and run them dry. No squeaks, and the wear actually went down, since they weren't getting grit stuck in the grease/lube/teflon/anti-sieze.

    Got some new shoes. Went a little daring with the color but I saw some pics of white euro VW's with these wheels in red and it looked good and since the price is right I figured I would give them a try and if I get sick of the color I would just get them powder coated.

    I always wanted TDR wheels but I hate the name engraved in the lip of it. Just reminds me of core racing wheels.

    The lighting and my phone overly lightened the color. This is the same wheel and color on a white VW;



    Still bright though ha ha.

    Honestly we all know that intakes don't make power on turbocharged engines so it's more about changing up the looks of the engine bay. I hated all the plastic and this cast aluminum piece breaks up the dearth of black plastic surrounding the engine and that intake piece is a piece of cheap and ugly plastic. The sound is a little louder with the filter and cast aluminum not insulating sound like plastic. For most people it's probably a waste of money as there's really no performance gains but I'm okay with that.

    you've seen my car before, I got the TDR without the name on the lip.

    one of the vendors on focusst.org can order them in special without the name engraved on the edge (that's what I did)

    see attached picture (ignore the brake dust).

    Cobb Stage 0 now running, and I have the Stage 1 (OTS) on the AP (haven't used yet).
    Stratified base map should be arriving Monday, and tweaking to come over the next few weeks.
