Cheap way out..... remove stock air box, replace with 3 1/2" inlet filter.
I used a Fujita filter for mine.

Looks like a good way to go. Do you feel any difference?

Has anyone that installed the Fujita intake noticed a power gain? I hear K&N makes one as well, but pricey. I live in Cali and unless it's C.A.R.B. legal then I will have to take it off and replace a CAI with the stock box for smog.

Come on TRD, help us out!!!!! AEM, where are you????

I am running the exact same set up in mine, I have a manual though, I would say that the combination of intake and exhaust made a difference in power, either one alone I couldn't see making any noticeable gain...

I did the exact same filter thing on my xD, Rhino, but I have a manual and a TRD axleback - sounds really great...

Yeah, sounds alot better with the intake / exhaust on.
I love my Magnaflow, nice low deep tone.
The TRD exhaust sounds really good too.

Oh, also if anyone wants to get rid of the goofy handle thing on the stock intake, I found a solution.
Found a 1" nylon plug at Lowe's, in the specialty drawers by the nuts/bolts section.
Fits perfectly in the place of that dumb handle. (See pics above)

yeah, I found some kind of plastic plug just laying around on the floor in my house that fit that "handle" hole, I think it may have been packaging from one of my kid's toys we had just opened, you know, the packaging that takes an army to undo? lol! iI'll probably look for that plug from Lowe's, though, since it is black and the one I put in is translucent white plastic...

I was going to get one of those axlebacks from PrecisionMuffler.com they make for the xD, since theirs was a lot cheaper than the TRD ($270 vs. $450), and they used a Magnaflow can... but then I found a TRD listed on Ebay for $219 starting price, and no one else bid on it, so I got it for the $219 plus Free Shipping! And the TRD is pretty polished stainless steel, the precisionmuffler one was not... so, what the hey, I ended up with a really cheap and really shiny TRD axleback instead!

Has anyone replaced the stock air filter with the TRD? I did and noticed a nice change in the TRD exhaust sound but can't really feel any power gain. SOMEONE PLEASE MAKE A C.A.R.B. LEGAL INTAKE!!!!!!

Not sure about C.A.R.B. legal, but here is something I hadn't seen before.
Scroll down to Scion, then xD and click on "video" to watch dyno run. Turn up your volume.

I have seen it in person and know the girl who owns the xD. She is from SE So Cal and it is not C.A.R.B. legal but she said she noticed a definite power gain. So those of you who can get away with it she claims its the best out for now.
I was thinking long term and added the supplemental insurance to my ride, so every mod I do has to be TRD or not illegal in Cali.

I just did the Spectre air filter from Auto Zone that lots of others have done as well...Less than $30 bucks and simple to install...If you get it, make you get the one that says, 3", 3.5", 4"...There are removable rubber inserts for each application...Here is a pic of mine with engine bay lighting:

Cool DIY intakes guys. IMO the Injen CAI is not to bad for the money, I like the way you can run it as a CAI or a short ram intake.
