Gauging interest-New Carbon Fiber stuff

Hello All,
After doing tons of research, I have a found a manufacturing firm that would be able to construct a Carbon Fiber intake for our cars. It would be styled/designed very similar to an injen intake (meaning non V2 style.) The advantage in addition to the obvioius cool factor, would be that it would be lighter weight (negligable) and have better thermodynamic principles, as Carbon fiber does not retain heat like aluminum does.

I am also looking into them doing a carbon fiber TL engine cover for us accord guys, and also a standard accord engine cover as well.

However, as you can imagine the set up costs are large, and I am trying to gauge interest in the product. Please let me know if you would be interested in purchasing something like this.

For example here is a Dinan Intake(they make high end parts for BMW's)


Their's is $449, but I am trying to be able to produce in enough bulk to lower the cost to around $250.
