I know the 320 is a four but these are the only intakes available period. That is sad considering these have been around for some time now!

I dont really think its sad. I think that companies are just trying to get the product perfect before releasing it to the public.

Gruppe M's is out for the 330. Somebody was trying to put together a GB for them.

I passed because I'm quickly growing tired of fiddling with my cars ... that and it's 900 bones. But a p-car guy should be used to those kinds of prices.

I don't get it. Why does the housing of the intake have such an odd shape? is that supposed to be a heat shield? Also, how would this intake draw cold air? is looks like it would just draw hot engine air. Am i missing something?

Well, same story with AEM.
Guy from AEM left and made injen. I guess fujita is same.

AEM/Injen has been making great intakes for cars, so I trust their quality. I haven't heard any reputation words about fujita, and thats the only reason Im not buying anything from them.

At the end, all the intakes are same anyway as long as good tubing and filter is used. Its matter of how they deal with heat. Unfortunately, Fujita seemed like they were in a hurry(to release before AEM/Injen/K&N), made some prototype, did few runs on dyno and decided to release it.

Im sure Injen knows this and hopefully they provide us with improved system.
