Also it's good to see TiAL in that thread, and have some info/input from their perspective.

^^^Because they don't want people telling them "I told you so." They want to remain internet heroes. I get calls asking if Tial "this or that" will fit in the real thing because theirs crapped out.

Great, now I'm going to be paranoid about mine... It's the only china/knockoff part I haven't replaced on the kit

Maybe I'll take it apart and see if it is the exact same one.

Ouch, there is so many knock off's for the Ebay guys...I have a real hard time understanding, well let's put 15K in the motor with turbo kit then buy cheap part's at the end of my build to get by...

The plastic bosch ones are cheap but robust enough for Porsche. I have been running a pair of them for 6 years. They are not china knockoffs however. Maybe that is the key-not necessarily cost.

I am a Design Engineer and we utilize China and other countries requently with good results. The problem is poor design, testing and understand of metals.

Bosch, tial and others have spent the time and money to develop a reliable, quality part their customers. The ebay wholesalers are more in the mind set of cutting cost to get you a product that appears apples to apples.

I really hate seeing bashing of any country. It all comes down to design and design control. BTW your bosch bov was probably made in there Chinese factory in Beijing.

Unless they lied, the bosch were not made in china. While it may be possible to produce quality goods there (and there are several examples), the majority of products that you see everyday that are made in china are not good quality. The drive to manufacture over there is to cut costs-not increase quality.

My pypes exaust system is an example of something that appeared to be well designed but made in china under high quality standards to lower costs. The 304 stainless started getting rusts spots the first winter. The system never fit that well. It is ok but I would not buy it again.
