Take some daytime pics and we'll at eleast know what the car looks like. That's a good first step in suggesting cosmetic improvements.

As for power...there are tons of threads on that topic. IN a nutshell, short of supercharging the engine at a cost of $5-$7K you can only get minor power increases and they will cost big bucks.

If you chipped it, added headers, put a performance might squeak out 10-15 hp tops.

Lots of guys change the rear differential to get more out of the existing HP but I'm not sure that would apply to a x-drive.

I'm not a pessimist. At some point the world sh!ts on everybody. Pretending it ain't sh!t makes you an idiot, not an optimist.
