Question Mystery 2nd gen part

Good morning Nasioc. I purchased some parts off ebay this weekend and I need help identifying a part that came with the lot. I've seen the intercooler shroud and rad shroud before but have never seen this hood scoop inlet. I did a search with the part# on the back of it but that got me nowhere(seller had no details either), couldn't even find a picture of another one. Have any of you seen this before and if you have, who makes it?

I don't think so. I looks like the GT-B scoops are the same as the USDM second gens and color matched from the factory. It's not a big deal, just never seen one before and was trying to get some info on it.

Looks like a factory hoodscoop that was "dipped" in a CF overlay bath.

Yeah, I think Hondaslayer is most likely right.

The more I look at it the more it looks just like the 01 RS center console / vent surrounds. Perhaps an STI optional part? It looks too clean to be aftermarket, though the process I mentioned is definitely what made it.

Thanks for responses fellas. It just arrived in the mail today so I installed it. The fit is absolutely perfect so it may indeed be a factory option.
