well its hard to say if cant datalog it. if you have the same weird tgv issue that i have it should be fine. if you truly had bad gas you just need to keep driving until it clears but from what I hear problems that are actually from bad gas are pretty rare.

have you noticed any power loss?

Not particularly, but I am also not tracking the car so if there is a loss, I'm not seeing it. Maybe Ill bring it in, although without codes I dont think theres anything they can do really...and torque has no data relating to the tgv...pretty much only the o2 sensors are the only relevant things

Don't you ever accelerate hard, redline a gear or something? go WOT?

it took my car something like a year of on and off weird idle before the codes showed up.

Close to those, but I havent really had an opportunity since getting the gas.

edit- went out, doesnt seem to be underperforming as far as I can tell. A little rough on acceleration and still a rough idle but thats about it.

Ok ill take it easy, which I was going to do anyway seeing as how my tank is filled with liquid gold.

Well that and I would rather avoid a ticket... Gone the whole time I've had this car without even getting pulled over. Knock on wood

What's the proper brake bleeding order for our cars? I've searched and heard of people using both methods: pf, dr, df, pr and pr, dr, pf, df. Which one's right? Or does it even matter?

I always started with farthest away and worked in. PR,DR,PF,DF. If your changing fluid, I would buy the Motive bleeding kit, like $75 or so and it holds new fluid and pumps old fluid out. Just crack PR to force bleed old fluid and air out till you see new fluid then just crack the others to drain local old fluid out till new fluid comes out and your finished. 1 person can change fluid and bleed air in under 10 minutes. And the system is pressure flushed at same time. Makes it very easy to change fluid routinely. And your ABS will love you for it.

I've thought about that, but I have someone to help me so I don't think it will be too bad. Thanks

Our brakes work in banks which is passengers rear inner then outer, then drivers front inner then outer, drivers rear inner then outer, last is passengers front inner then outer.

The goal is removing all of the old fluid and replace it with new fluid without any air bubbles.

You tube has many good videos how to do it

Now I'm confused again lol. I understand how to do it. I just don't know the order. I guess it doesn't matter too much since I've heard of people using both sequences

Enkei I think is the cheapest wheel without paying $500 a wheel(which seems to be a bargain these days). But enkei has the rajin which looks nice for around $1200.

As far as tires...conti dws

I know a guy who is selling 18x9.5 weds tc105n.

Yeah they are good tires. Sidewalls are a bit soft, but great for spirited daily driving.

Its probably between those and potenza S-04s or w/e

The only thing I don't like about the Raijins is the sharp bend angle on the spokes as they come to center. Wish it was a smoother curve

Celery, did you find the oil you are going with? Just did my second change in mine and also my friends with the t6, still happy with it so far.

Got around to installing my front sway bar with the kb endlinks. The endlinks don't line up the way I want them to, even with some spacers in there, (not the actual kb spacers) I didn't notice I needed to add spacers for the whitline bar until I was installing it. The alignment of the endlink is off for sure and causes them to make a pop noise if I turn it really hard, I need to order the actual kb spacers and figure out the right set up. Great improvement in handling so far though!
