A few weeks ago, I installed new gunmetal VMR 710s (pic in the VMR wheel callout thread) and got the rear fenders rolled. Today, I replaced the outer tie rod ends. Purchased the Roadsafe ones which were an upgrade to the worn out stock ones. Now need to go get an alignment. Thanks @Duckman!

Just got the alignment checked and adjusted. Steering is firmer than it has been in years. Drives straight as an arrow. Those tie rod ends are worth every penny.

What have I done lately? PANICKED!

I got my first "Reduced Performance Safety Mode" experience and freaked out for a few minutes. I had to limp it home and surely thought something was broken (exhaust had sickly sound to it).

It happened one other time when I floored in in 5th gear. My research here told me to move my MAF away from the throttle body, because my recent install of my X-air could have it caused the TB blade to hit it. So far, it hasn't happened again, but I've only driven ~50 since this work around.
