Rogue Carbon Cowl Scoop and Cowl Cover interest

I know a lot a time has gone by and a lot of work has gone into developing this part but I think the carbon cowl scoop is about ready and I would like to start getting an idea of the interest. This has generated much interest on the 'get some carbon started' thread but I thought since I would like to inquire about specific interest in the scoop and cover it would be best to start a new thread just for this.
The scoop pictured is going out for final testing (thank you George02) and assuming everything looks good there will need to be just a little tweaking and production can begin. As you can see the part will come with the mesh and will be available in 2x2 twill carbon (black), 1x1 plain weave carbon (also black), red / black carbon kevlar, and yellow / black carbon kevlar. On the back side of the part there are two tab, similar to the stock cover to hold it in place. I will post pictures of the various fabrics as the parts are made. Since this is the first part I will be playing around a bit with the carbon to get a better pattern in the part.
Since this thread is to gage interest in the carbon scoop and cover please keep comments to that and use other threads to debate the need or practicality of the items.
Thanks for all the input and please note that priority will be given to members you have been following progress on the other thread and those who have been making inquiry about progress.

If there proves to be enough interest for a group buy I will be looking at selling the scoop for under $100 including USPS shipping in the US and $45 for the carbon cover including USPS shipping.

I'm interested . . .

Is this primarily a cosmetic mod or is there a real world reason (temp drops etc.) to add this? Just curious

I'll pull the trigger.

And if you don't like carbon, just paint it black or body color. No big deal.

1. kmdebit

It's great to see the interest in the parts. It looks like we will have good support for the group buys. I'll probably limit the GB's to 10 pieces so that deliveries don't get pushed too far out, but as soon as one is completed we can move on to the next.
I will try to get some pics of the scoop installed, but for now there are a few of the first version installed on George02's car on the 'Lets get some carbon started' thread.
I can easily offer the scoop as a black gel coated fiberglass part as well for a little lower price.

Again thanks for the comments and interest,

Jim

Ditto, I would prefer the FG option you mentioned as well.

How effective is this scoop, I am having underhood temp issues. Can I expect relief for that or is this all show?

Any pics available of it installed?

i would think there is a little temp difference with the scoop on .. i know i get some air with my seibon mg cf Hood and i also took this little piece off before but saw no difference on my scangaue in the temp of my intake but with the actual scoop it may make a couple degrees difference and get some more air flow in the engine area
