I have a 05 xB that i would like to do some mods to. I don't have a lot of cash, so the mods must be on the cheaper side. What do you suggest i do first? I was thinking abou doing a SRI or a CAI. Any manufacturers I should be looking at? Any help would be great.

Intake, exhaust, header, pulley, tint, debadge, shave rear wiper, front grille, paint interior, fiberglass armrest, intake ports, cold cathode kit, LED's, cleared headlights. You could do all of that stuff for under $1,000. Seriously.

Engine
Intake- I got my Injen SRI for $160
Exhaust- Master Muffler and Brake did a Magnaflow catback for $240
Header- $200-$250 Look around. I don't have one.
Pulley- $100-$150 Look around.
Ground Kit- Make your own for about $50
De-Slack Accelerator Cable- FREE

Body/Exterior
Tint- $200
Debadge- Free
Shave Rear Wiper- $2.00, can pick up a plug at Home Depot or Lowe's
Front Grille- Ebay is your friend. $40-$300
Intake Ports- I did mine for $12
Cleared Headlights- Free
Underglow Lights- oznium.com you can choose to do your own or buy their kit. I would do my own. You would probably need 6-8 12"tubes. It would run you about $50 with the wire and switch.
Lexus Tail Lights- $2k
Mini Side Markers- $1.5k
Sentra Fogs- $1k
Silverstar Headlight Bulbs (All)- $60
Luminics JDM Amber Fog Light Bulbs- $30
Padanky Grille- Fiberglass, Bondo, Primer, Paint and lots o skill and patience!
Halo Headlights- $140
LED Tail Lights- $140

Interior
Painted Interior- $30 and some patience
Fiberglass Armrest- $40 and lots of patience
Cold Cathode Kit- oznium.com is where it's at! You can do engine bay, dash, and pretty much everything for about $80

Suspension
Goldline Lowering Springs- $120
Strut Tower Brace- $100-$150


OK, so it might be a little more than $1000, but it should give you some ideas. There's a ton of little mods that are cheap. You can also do headlights and taillights, lip kit, even a sunroof for cheap. Just don't be afraid to do some of the stuff yourself. Hope this helped.

If it wasn't my Daily. I wouldn't mind doing a 4-5 inch chop and a custom widebody once it gets old and paid for.

thanks for the great info! I am going to try to post a couple pics of my xb on here. I was actually able to get cleared taillights from the dealer. They look really good and are a heck of a lot brighter than the ugly stock ones. I have heard that XBs run better with an SRI than a CAI. Is this true? Im looking for some on ebay. Thanks for the replies
