This thing is like brand new. See pic. I had it on my car for about 6 months and switched to a Procharger setup. Otherwise, it would still be on my car. JLT makes an extremely quality piece. This kit is immaculate with no scratches. The best looking/performing CAI for these cars yet IMO. Winner of the 5.0 M&SF intake shootout. This pipe is painted black as you can see in the pic. Kit is complete with all the hardware. $150 shipped.
