I bought the XB in November 04 when the gas prices started to surge. I figured at 37mpg and Toyota quality/reliability how could I go wrong. Many of you probably know me from my MR2 which made 398whp and ran 11s in pump gas. So driving the XB was like....well walking. 108hp at the crank was just way too slow. Suprisingly the car didnt drive like a 1.5 liter with 108hp. Toyotas VVTI did a pretty good job giving the little motor some torque. Anyways, I decided to turbo the car a couple of weeks ago. The first thing I noticed was even more torque! I dynoed the car bone stock and it made 89whp and 90ft/lbs of torque. After putting a 14G mitsu turbo here is my graph from my dyno session yesterday.
This was with stock intake and stock exhaust which is damn puny. I monitored the AFR from the stock Greddy Emanage and I am not please with it so I will be tuning and remapping it soon.
