Can't speak for the Revosport ones I haven't came across anyone that has those.
I've only seen ones which only have the top of the plenum made of cf whereas the bottom retains the oe part of the plenum. Is it possible to get full cf plenums made?

Yes that's what I meant you want the top to be made out of carbon fiber. Some on the market are made with just a carbon fiber overlay over the whole thing and since you said sound was an important factor I was just mentioning it.

Gonna look awesome if you do it be sure to post some pics!

^ CF overlay/wrap is not going to give you this awesome sound!

^ Only the real deal will sound good.

Neither will provide any HP increase, but the CF ones sure sound awesome.

Sounds wise, possibly. Visually, no mistake there.
