first off this covers a few different sections.. so im putting it here cause it is for my 06 xB
Just wondering if some of these mods are bogus or worth it.. can you guys give me a heads up if
these mods are a waste of money, or worth spending the money and time for.. (just from personal experience)
basically im just trying to mod my car to have a little more than stock power.. already know what exhaust i want,
but im also looking to make my car handle the best that i can.. kinda like if i wanted to autocross the thing..
i have lowering springs already.. and sway bars (front and back). just want to know if these parts listed are worth it.. i plan to eventually autocross it.. to me comfort isnt as important as handling..
I have the perrin pulley and I did notice a little more pick up, but I recommend getting new poly-cog belts for both the crank/alternator/ac, and the power steering b/c when I tried using the stock belts it squeaked against the aluminum pulley.
Make your own grounding kit.
Lower brace not really needed unless you are doing serious autocrossing.
pully only if you have a stick plus other mods like exhaust and intake.
The dampener will just add vibrations from the engine into the interior. May be needed if you ever add turbo or supercharger but otherwise I'd pass.
05' BCP xB W/ 48K miles
08' Absolute Red Yaris LB 5spd. W/ 42K miles
k.. dont plan on adding boost.. (just doesnt seem like its worth it.. makes you faster, yes.. but faster then what?..
i want my car to be autocross worthy, so looks like ill be getting the lowerbrace.. my car is a stick, and i already have the intake, and the exhuast is on its way.. reason i hadnt put it on the list..
anyways thanks for all the responses.. i now know what im going to do..
