Signed up a while ago, just started visiting.
Out of turbo's and into Scions now, had my mom buy the Gen 1 xB in 2005 and I have the 2008 xB.
No more go fast for me, going for MPG and decent sound now.

Glad to be here, hope I can help and/or contribute in some way... :thumbsup:

sounds good uberspeed!

i may just go with the sound deadening material first to see how it sounds since i am on a tight budget - i figure if i cover the doors well that the sound improvement may do me for now...

btw, i was checking out your MPG chart from your sig link - you are getting pretty decent mileage, are you doing a lot of highway driving? it looks like it from your mileage driven...

Definitely do sound deadening. Keep road noise out, keep music in. Mind you deadening isn't that cheap and it's a pain to put on. If I were you I'd swap out the speakers for the Polks I'm using. You can do db651's for front and rear, it'll still be an improvement.
I do a lot of highway, nut it's gridlock highway on I-95 and 595, I try some hypermiling techniques. I'm making a big change from fast turbo cars to this now, just needed to :(

Thanks sonicmyk! :D
