These are some threads related to FA20Club and their bad customer service and parts quality.

As you can see they don't have a good rep so I would stay clear of FA20club.

i've had their intake for a while now and the build quality on mine was good. a user on here datalogged and showed a good reduction in intake temps so it does what it's supposed to. sounds pretty aggressive too. i have the v1 so maybe i got mine before they started going downhill

^^ They shipped some good V2's as well, but they also shipped some absolute crap. When they fell behind on production their QC went right down the toilet.

The perrin intake is compatible with the innovate setup. They also have a 3" intake of the same design that requires a tune but does make power.

You would have had to do that with the FA20 intake as well.

If you want an intake like that then go Perrin for sure. Great company with a good reputation. However, intakes do not seem to do much, if anything, maybe with a tune or FI they will. If I was to go FI in the future I'd just get a drop in filter then buy an intake based on your FI kit if it doesn't come with one. You want to make sure your intake will work well with your FI kit and your tuner.

Yeah but the filter was smaller and I think I could have gotten away with not removing the bumper. The perrin unit looks like it would get deformed if id try to wedge it in and out

There's no way you would get the FA20club filter out to clean without at least partially removing the bumper. If anything that filter is a bigger diameter than the Perrin.

Same here man. I have a V1. I'm still running stock exhaust and it really livened up the engine's sound. I really like my intake.
