    Prevalence of Chinese Aftermarket Auto Parts in USA

    In Australia my options for aftermarket car parts are about 95% made in China.
    Is this also a problem in America?

Blood is rushing into your muscles and that's what we call The Pump. You muscles get a really tight feeling, like your skin is going to explode any minute, and it's really tight - it's like somebody blowing air into it, into your muscle. It just blows up, and it feels really different. It feels fantastic.

    Yes and tons of it are fraud. It may say the manufacturer's name on it, even have their logo, hologram, and same part number but it's not.

    In China people aren't taught not to cheat, just not to get caught.

    People want cheap aftermarket parts. China makes cheap aftermarket parts. Is it a problem? No unless you pay price for genuine part and get Chinese aftermarket one lol
    Don't hit at all if it is honorably possible to avoid hitting; but never hit softly.

    BRB, rolling out your immaculate ferrari. Look under bonnet, all Chinese.
    Not sure if serious.

    Cheap Chinese knockoffs are all over eBay. Gotta buy direct from manufacturer if you want piece of mind that it's a genuine part.

    Chinese parts are fine for most things... most car parts don't require a ton of engineering detail. I wouldn't buy a turbo kit from ebay, but metal tubes in various shapes (headers, downpipes, etc) are usually g2g

    Lets just consider as an example, an Classic American muscle car.
    How American is it really if it's full of Chinese parts?

    Almost everything is made in China nowadays. Companies like Manley have their cranks and rods forged in China, then machined to spec in America.

    Thankfully in America, we don't get hit by tons of importation taxes on car parts.

    classic cars and china don't go together.. They were actually made in america.

    Want OEM? Gotta buy from a dealer 90% of the time. Luckily, there's always some dealer that sells cheap parts on line for any given brand. I could have an old perspective on that...

    For name brand aftermarket, I shop from reputable sources only.

    Unless its for beater racecar. Beater racecar gets whatever I goddamn feel like putting on it. If I want to put ebay log manifolds into some holsets for a foxbody, you can get that done for under a 1k lol.
    Have a great Friday you motherfukkeeeeeer!

    Some Chinese parts I’m OK with.

    For example, third-party American companies are charging $300+ for a fuking charge pipe for my BMW. It’s literally a piece of hollow aluminum that’s forged and shaped. It’s almost criminal.

    You should be getting a silicone one anyway. It's also called BMW tax. I can get a $2000 CF intake that won't add any power
