I Just Got back from the Toyota dealer in Athens, and i will be getting a white Xb in feb. And was going to get some basic mods so i can do them the day i get my Xb. I Was thinking Intake, Axel Back, Springs, Frunt Strut Bars, And Wheels. I was hoping to get some insight and sugestions on thes parts from some curret Xb owners.
parts i was thinking
Intake - Aem
Axel Back - 5zigen
Springs - Hotchkis
Strut Bar - Hotchkis
Wheels - 18'' Enkei rs5's or 18'' Enkei CDR9's w/toyo TS-1's
i didn't know that hotchkis made springs for the xb?....i recommend the goldlines if they are available where you live....I have the AEM intake and have had no probs with it. I also have the TRD exhaust and it sounds really nice...quiet for cruisin, but loud when u romp on it....about wheels, get atleast 18's....anything smaller will look funky without springs.
hotchkiss sway bar
hid kit(NO MORE THAN 7000k)
tananbe springs(suspension if u got the cash)
rims are up to u..
if u're on a budget,..
i'd rock 5zigen FN01R-C(lots of colors and sizes for cheap)
and they look good
and exhuast would be up to u.. trd, apex, 5zigen, jic, blitz...
Go for the Cusco Type II lower frame brace. It's well worth the wait for it to arrive from Japan. Between the Hotchkisss upper strut tie bar and this lower frame brace, they have noticeably improved the stiffness of my already stiff xB
also when you are looking at wheels make sure you figure out how much they weigh.. to me that is the most important part about wheels, even more than looks. On my civic which has comparable power to the xB, I had 17" wheels that weighed 22 lbs. it slowed the car down so much. then I switched over to 11 lb 15" wheels and it made a huge difference, more than even an intake adds..
just try to keep the weight of the wheels down or it will hurt performance/gas mileage
