Eric@pyspeed,
I have a question.
Are those 100% dry carbon fiber or C/F fabric overlay like EAS?

I don't understand why people like improving aesthetics under the hood. How often do you open the hood anyways? I'd rather spend money on the outside of the car where everyone sees it. Just my 02 cents.

It's like girl wearing nice undies.
They're not going to show to every guys they meet but still make them feel good and sexy.

Technocraft is Password JDM FYI. their CF stuff is supposed to be mostly dry carbon. I'll be interested to see dynos on the air box and elbows etc. Some of the parts ive seen from them had horrible amounts of pinholes, so i hope they have raised the bar some for the bmw market.

We do - using OEM cores to ensure perfect fitment.

I believe they are 100% CF. Not sure about dry or wet. I sent mitch over to technocraft for the prototyping! I didnt want my car there for that long.

Well, i think their goal is to increase performance at all cost. They focus on performance over cosmetics. I believe their quality is actually pretty good from the parts on their lambo and their GTR.

That's what I'm thinking.

I wonder how the quality with this piece is. Tecnnocraft is the same as Password:JDM which makes the best quality parts for the R35 GTR. Their parts for the R35 are only dry carbon and are the best pieces available in fitment and quality for the R35.

I wonder if they also make the lowering intake duct in carbon. That would be AWESOME for a full CF intake.
