little help w/ carbon fiber hood

I want to buy a carbon fiber Hood with the raised scoop. I was looking at the vis oem Hood b/c it says it already has the raised scoop on it. Where can I get one for a good deal? also does anyone know if jfracing.com is a good place to buy the kaminari kit from? thanks for the help.

when i first got the vis, i just went there and picked it up
it was only like 320, if you pick it up
but personally, the Hood is very strong, but it doesn't fit very good and quality isn't good, i'll give about 7 out of 10
so i got the fiberimage food and they look much more shinier and solid look. and it fits perfect. give about 9 out of 10 its about 400 when you pick it up
if you really have money i prolly go with o.e.tuning Hood.
those hoods are from japan and very good quality and strong. there is more layer of carbonfiber. 10 out of 10
but this one cost a lot
its your choice. but more money gives you better stuff

That is a good deal. He just asked were I got mine...

Also you may want to ask how long until you would get it because he does not have them in stock. It says special order...
