I finally received my Evolve CF Airbox!

I won't be installing this until after my SS V1 Stepped Headers and SPipe arrive from Italy.

Here's a quick first impression of finally seeing this firsthand. It is so damn light! It came in this huge 3f tx 2f tx 2ft box and I was getting ready to lift something heavy for some reason and literally, I almost threw it in the air. I'm curious how much weight, if any, it'll drop in the front of the car.

The CF weave is very clean and prominent. With the gloss finish I chose, it really provides a deep 3D look. I am very happy I chose to go with gloss instead of matte. As many of you know, it is not easy laying down CF for very contour and curved shapes like this Airbox. So I was expecting to see some slight imperfections and to my surprise, it was better than expected and near OEM quality.

I'll keep the rest of my impressions for when I have more time to really analyze the product and be able to use my dSLR to take better pics.

Until then, enjoy some of these shots from different angles.
