How come nobody told me it was $10 a quart at the stealership!!!

It's at 132, now I'm ready for "another" 100k
$10 a quart for ATF is highway robbery. Toyota fluid is nothing special. You can get Maxlife at Wal-Mart for about $18 a gallon, and it is an equivalent fluid for tons of applications, including Toyotas.

Re: What did you do to your xb today??

There are shady people in every profession, what matters is the character of the person. My best friend, brother from another mother, is a cop and he is a good man.

You are right. I have known very upstanding police and I'm not bad-mouthing in any way. The problem is, we're all human and sometimes we just aren't right, no matter our 'label'.

Re: What did you do to your xb today??

-chokes on drink- $10 a quart? What are you buying, full synthetic ATF? In general, dealerships are a very poor place to get a good deal on parts and service. It is a fun place to work though when you love modding cars after work.

Re: What did you do to your xb today??

Changed oil. Tried to find if there is a vacuum leak but I don't think there is. Looking at pulling the TB off to clean it and look at the isc. Not sure if I have the daylight.

---------- Post added 11-21-2015 at 05:37 PM ----------

Would of rather ran out of light. Striped the first bolt on the isc trying to pull it from the TB.

Re: What did you do to your xb today??

Started stripping the aftermarket parts off of my wife's xB before we put it up for sale. Got the 3 piece Be Cool Billets off and the stocks back on. Also got the stereo pulled off. I'll probably get to the suspension and exhaust bits off next Friday or Saturday. I also posted up the stereo stuff I pulled from my wife's car (and then some) on some local and SoCal Scion FB classified groups.

Nope that goes under the passenger seat.

Yep. Under-seat. Similar to the last pic posted, but for the passenger side. We were powering the 11Kv2 with the NINe.2. A very nice bass upgrade for the first gen.

Re: What did you do to your xb today??

I went into a corner a bit too fast, pulled the ebrake, punched the gas, and drifted out. Was fun but a little scary too.

Re: What did you do to your xb today??

I applied sound deadening to the rear liftgate. Used 80 mil Noico I bought on eBay. Really makes a difference.

Now, I need to do the entire cargo area and rear doors.

Embarrassed a redneck in an early 2000s F150 who thought he owned the road. When I wouldn't concede to his forcefully trying to overtake my lane, he grew frustrated and got rev happy trying to intimidate me with the roar of his anemic V8 When we reached a stop light. I responded in kind by giving him an earful off Tool's Swamp Song at about 115 dB.

He couldn't keep up getting to the next light, but he was sure to show his approval in my choice of music when he made the right turn as I waited for the green. At least, I think that was a thumbs up.

I also used the Noico from ebay, but i only did the flat outer surface. Then I stuffed it with poly-fil. It has a nice solid thud when I close the hatch now.
