Looking at picking up an authentic mugen carbon hood possibly. Brand new. Do they all have badging on the underside because this doesn't. It is also gel or clearcoated. The middle vent is open too. The weave is 1x1, and has the airbox bulge. It looks to be really high quality.

Thanks guys.

if you have a picture of it, i can tell if its authentic. The vents and scoop are much more agressive than the replicas.

there is dry carbon and normal carbon versions i think

there's like 2 or 3 versions of the mugen hood(racing version, dry carbon version?)
racing hood is fiberglass. street hood is carbon(not dry)


SOME Mugen hoods have tags in center of hood.just depends on what car its for.
Mugen hoods for honda fit dont have tags but you can tell just by looking at one whether its real or not. As far as I know ALL dc5 hoods have tags. I dont always trust what king says bc they like to play the"if you dont buy from us,its not real" bs on ppl.

Pics would help everyone help the op as to whether the hood was real or not.There ARE OTHER japanese hoods out there that look like mugen/have 1x1/but are not mugen. so just be careful on your purchase.:) need any help just hit me up.
