Default J's Racing Intake

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Js-Racing-C...emZ120056534721

Don't ask me how I came across this, but it looks to be phony. And the guy who sells it, JJ Racing, sounds to be phony as well.

But I wondered if J's Racing actually makes carbon-kevlar intakes now -- anybody know one way or another?

Yes, the NEW J's snorkels are carbon/kevlar. The tsuchinoko is still full carbon though.

That looks like Ben's auction from AJ Racing. He's a good guy, and that's who I bought my Prodrives from.

Yup it's legit. You can find it on j's website with some digging.

Correct, the new snorkel parts are all carbon kevlar. That is A&J Racings Ebay account. So it is a real part from J's

Ok cool, yeah looks like a nice piece. I emailed them and somebody emailed me back saying that they were "affiliated with AJ-R". I have no idea why it is $45 to ship it, I shipped my Spoon snorkel (which I miss and want back) for like $7, I guess because of customs?
