That one is just for looks, no true benefit from the CF.

lol that one does look like those fake carbon fibre exhausts for those pocket bikes. I was really going for the look more though. How about carbon wrap? Would it hold up or the engine heat might destroy it?? Anyone know how tough they are.


Do you have a pic of the power chamber one installed.. its a good price. Any better/worse than the k/n or Injen or pretty much the same thing?

Carbon Fiber is pretty tough and holds up against heat. You could wrap your own if you wanted to. Laying carbon fiber is easy.

yeah i might just get a generic black pipe, wrap it in carbon and get a k/n filter.

J's is decent looking but why the hell is it $900+ does J personally come and rail you in ur ass with every purchase? B/c paying $900 for an intake id feel pretty shafted :donno:

Supposedly CT Engineering is making a new Icebox made out of carbon fiber, I'm not too sure what happen to that.
