my rule of thumb is always "You get what you pay for". You gotta think, why would a reliable company charge $200+ for an intake if you can make a good one for under $40? :ponder:

Well ... according to the auctions they are the DC Sports header and Injen CAI/SRI (I'm not really sure which application they have for the xB).
That being said they're good products. What you have to ask yourself is:
A: Why are they selling them for so cheap?
B: Are they items they're selling really what they claim?

This is a totally up to you call. The header makes claims to be DC-S, but no pictures of actual product or box. Also only 4hrs right now until auction ends. At the same time, he has some negative feedbacks, one stating the item wasnt as advertised, another stating it didnt fit the advertised vehicle.
The intake still has a few days to go, and has a bid on it already, PLUS he has no negative feedback.


totally up to you, its kinda like gambling.

So, in other hand there good products.... BUT, they might not be what they say, like in other wise, Im just throwing away my money to people that might be selling me cheap imitation stuff that isent what it really says it is... so I should just buy the real thing and not get gipped for something that might not fit, or not be that header/intake... and another thing, do yall think those air intakes with no name, with like a blue air filter are any good?

You have to start using the "search" feature on ScionLife before posting here. I'm serious. I want you to search for what your looking for using 3 different ways to phrase it before you ask questions. That is all.
