C1201 and P0171. Also my battery failed the test at Orileys.
Ive narrowed it down to what I think it is, the MAF sensor needs to be cleaned, right? Also new battery, could a poor operating battery cause the lights to come on? Haven't read anything on the forum about the battery causing those problems.
Well it's been 3 days since I replaced the battery and cleaned the MAF and no lights. Runs sooooooo much better. Happy happy joy joy.

Next thing i'm eying is a Megan H brace for the front end. Probably don't need it, but for $60, it can't hurt!

(Other suspension mods- Tanabe DF210 springs, KYB Excel-G Toyota Echo shocks and struts, Energy Suspension bushings up front and a DC Sports front strut bar)
I read somewhere that the Echo shocks and struts are one inch lower then the XB, is that right?

No. The Echo shocks will make no difference in height in the rear. The front struts are approximately 1/2" lower than the xB struts due to a lower spring seat on the Echo version.

I started playing with plasti dip... First attempt at a stripe failed because the tape peeled off the paint because it was drying so fast. I ended up trying that Duraflex Concept bodykit paint job that I've seen around
