installing wasn't too bad seeing that i did it by my self, about 1 hr 30 mins, and i answered my own question when trying to find out if i needed to take off the bumper and yes you do. Taking off the bumper was pretty self explanatory and not difficult at all once you get down and look at how its held together. All screws are easily visible to take off bumper. Did it in like 7 mins solo. The result was awesome. The sound is deep and power is easily felt. The RPM's go up much much faster than before. Its sold on ebay - http://cgi.ebay.com/FUJITA-COLD-AIR-INTAKE-2008-SCION-XB-CA-3104-POLISHED_W0QQitemZ260209152383QQihZ016QQcategoryZ38634QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
feel free to ask any questions. im more than happy to help a fellow xB'er

Like everything else held on the car, the bumper just snaps into place with clips. It still stays on even with all the bolts and screws taken off, which was super efficient. When held by the clips, on the sides of the bumper, simply pull out and they'll pop out. I have fog lights on the top grill which have wireing and I only had to unplug them while the grill and lamps stayed on the bumper when removed. Took me only like 8 mins. And another 8mins to put it back on. Its really not that bad. I was really careful about avoiding scratches. The bumper is super light too which was nice. Did that answer your question? Feel free to ask.

Good job on the install & thanks for posting pics :)
It does not automatically void your complete warranty. They'll need to prove that it caused whatever problem they're addressing.
We were VERY familiar with it on vwvortex: Magnusson-Moss Warranty Act

Short of it: The dealer would have to prove that the mod you did directly caused the failure of part/system in question for them to deny warranty repair.

Will you have to removed the bumper each time you need to clean the filter? That is my biggest question regarding the cold air intake. Obviously it isn't in the most accessible place.

NVM: found another post on a different type of intake that says no. Sorry for the trouble, I'm new....

I'm looking at purchasing a cold air intake and I would the bang for the buck. I've spoken with a few car enthusiasts about the fujita cold air intake, and some have said that when the fujita gets hot it actually lowers the RPM's. Do you find that to be true?

Have you thrown any codes?

Alot of the tC guys have thrown codes with the F5's on their cars.

I figured Id hold off until I heard from a few guys with these intakes.

Also, how did you manage to put the fogs in the top grill? Thats very unique!

From looking at the pictures, it seems to be hidden pretty well from water incase of running into a puddle.

I enjoy my K&N, the filter has really good quality to it and the heat shield is super great. It's been proven also many times over that both SRI and CAI have the same about of horsepower addition. Plus with SRI the cone filter is there for you to take out for cleaning without removing the bumper.
