So I now own an '05 xB that has been in the family since the day it was bought brand new at the dealer and is under 100k buy 900 or so mi. I got to thinking about Hmmmmm what to do with it and BAM this site comes up and gives {Personal Experience Speaking) great DYI's compared to other sites. The atmosphere on here does nothing but amp up my excitement! :eek:

No doubt I spend more time on here than I ever saw myself spending.

First Mod:
Obj. - Install Breather Filter for oil.

Results - Placed inline with the vacuum causing engine to
shoutdown on the spot.

Lesson Learned - Research Before Acting; Excitement CAN
Be controlled... with practice.


And that's what I've been doing and I learn something new all the time just wondering around through threads.
Planning on installing a F5 Fujita SRI since that seems to be the most popular yet looking into AEM. No follower (hinted by the car WE have) yet more people = more trust. but that's besides the point of this thread.

P.S. This post is not on the day I joined. I was too busy reading threads and link hopping to get around to it. We just sold our Rav 4 and I'm supposed to be cleaning it right now yet I figured "Hell perfect time for my Intro!" :rolleyes:


Some Weeks from now I plan on starting a Club Down here in South Texas in Galveston for xB's.
Just need some more $$$$$ to pay for some mods to start things off.

WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST MOD or PLANNED MOD? Wanna get to know some of y'all and plz oh plz post pics if you find the time to do so. I can't seem to get enough plus it looks coool when there are alot of pictures of mods on a thread.

Haha I can't believe I'm saving pay checks to order all these parts and covers. Even custom painting my hubs with spray paint and gloss clear coats

my car is kinda unique.;)

my build thread:

http://www.clubxb.com/forums/f5/cartoon-car-31942.html

it's evolved a lot, so scroll for pics. i have very little $ for real mods, so i make stuff out of discarded vinyl, magnets, and paint. also flaming fleece i got at a fabric liquidator store.

Toaster has been loved and hated, but he is all mine.



dubee is gonna harass me.

Bought my 06 a couple months ago...the previous owner scuffed up the right front hubcap pretty much, so I took 'em all off, and replced them with chrome trim rings and Toyota Tercel center caps.

i dont care for the term mod. prolly cuz most people use it as changing parts.
anyway. i rolled mine home from the dealer and that night i changed the headlights and redid the battery to fit in my intake and mounted the battery sideways and tied it down using a billet cage made for the optima yellow top i put in
