    Charge pipes for K04

    I keep popping couplings on the stock charge pipes, they may just be getting worn out. I was looking at the Neuspeed pipes, are they worthwhile, is there another brand that's doing it better? Will they work with a APR K04 and a EJ FMIC?

    Looking at a 2008 rabbit, what problems should I check for?

    Im a little clueless when it comes to the Rabbits. From what I can tell the 2.5 is a really reliable motor. Found a crazy deal locally on a 08 rabbit with a manual transmission. It has about 130K miles and an unknown service history. Should I look at anything specific?

    H&R 28F/24R swaybars

    Does anyone have the H&R 28/24mm swaybar combo? How is handling? Do these keep things neutral or understeer or are these going to be setup to over steer pretty hard to help get the car rotating for auto-x? Would it be better to go with one of the softer bars in the front and/or rear?
