nice find mfury! Aeimpex has a .jp web address which suggests Japan. their head office of CarbonRevo is in Singapore.

Perhaps a member from from Singapore knows something about them.

These guys posted this new carbon fibre hood with vents on another forum. Looks like dealer and wholesale only so far from them.

I think it looks snazzy. Wish they had pictures of underside.

The vents look fake which is a big turn off, it does not help they look like they point in the wrong direction. With the vents so far back it would make sense to have them going the other way to have hot air make its way out of the car. That is how my Carbon Fiber hood was on my turbo SX4.

I said it makes sense for them to be that far back on the Forte. The issue is that the vent slits are placed backwards. The orientation of the vents in the video would have air being pushed in the engine bay. That is if they are real, the hood is never opened and they almost seem fake; but it could be the bad quality video.

For reference here is a pic of the hood on my SX4. The vents are in the front because that is were the exhaust and turbo are.

ahh my fault i thought they were facing the other direction
No problem. Their fake anyhow and I would fear cutting into a CF hood like that. Carbon Fiber quality has a wide range and some of the lower grade stuff will shred and powder at the sight of a cutter.

well i'd say you're in luck most CF hoods are fiberglass with a CF overlay on the top side.. the bottom of that hood is probably all FG
