What did I say to upset you?You are indeed a "newbie", but my observation is you have a highly exaggerated opinion of yourself. You're welcome to the community, but please recognize the greater experience of those who preceded you. The value of the community is their combined experience and resulting insight, your presumed knowledge is helpful to no-one, most definitely including yourself. Best wishes !
I'm new and this is the 1st Toyota/Scion I have owned that was not a 4x4. I don't tow my quads to the dunes anymore & a bunch of other things truck owners do. So we didn't need a truck any more and Toyota/Scions are the best built auto's in the market period! Plus I can't buy a truck in white (AZ summer heat) with a manual transmission. (I like to drive, not ride in!) I will never buy a American owned maker again, been there done that mistake three times. We have two dogs, we like taking them with us places, we go to Costco and buy a boat load of stuff, gas keeps going up & up & up....I think you get my point? These are the three main reasons we bought the xB. Plus it's cute in it's own way. Nissan tried to sale me a Cube, sorry they are flat out fugly. I know the xB is not a race car and I'm not trying to make the xB into one. I'm just looking for a better flowing exhaust system that can still be somewhat quite. My loud exhaust system days are far behind me.
I was told by many a Toyota parts personal the scuba was a resonator and was told the same by Toyota tech's it was a resonator also. Why should I note trust the person who make's their living by repairing Toyota / Scions?
If I can get someone over to Enthuza I can have Jason build a complete exhaust system.
Now I need to research a TRD quick shifter & OEM alarm system. My mods will be complete other than maybe buying Hotchkis sway-bars. I bought a TRD rear sway and it really helps but I *think* I might want a little more bar. We owned a MINI Cooper S also, thank God for lemon laws. It was really fun to drive but fun only goes so far when the cars at the dealership getting warranty work.
