Here is how I see it playing out. Some of you will cry "Cheap Chinese Junk" even though you don't know what it is and where it came from. These guys wont buy from us. Lots of people will buy this stuff. Some people will have problems that we will take care of. Just like any other decent company. In a month this entire conversation will be forgotten about and guys like Hotrex will be buying parts from us because of the price.

Whats the big deal. If you dont want it, dont buy it.

If your going to make it in this world today business wise than you have to make sales period. You can't go around selling a product that someone else is selling for half b/c it was made overseas, you'll get put out of business or barley make it. You have to adapt to the market in order to make it. Sure there will be a group of people that will stick to the good high quality American made parts, and sure there will be probally more that will go to the overseas product. I'm don't hold this against CCA, their trying to make a living and to make it this a step that they feel that they need to do, their the only ones to make this choice not any of us. If they'll stand behind the products than I think that this will be a sucessfull step for them. If you like it buy it, if not buy the American made products that they offer, it's all personal preference.I'm also willing to bet that they will have better customer service on these products than anyone on eBay for that matter. I'm interested to see just who these are made by and the prices.

This ---- is a good read peoples. All that matters in reality is whether or not the parts work. If they do, nobody cares. Slap a USA sticker on em, and we're non the wiser. The public is more then happy to be fooled, and to play along, so long as ---- works.

Well, we have all digested the factoid that 98% of the money is in the possession of 2% of the US population, but due to attitudes like yours American manufacturing jobs are leaving this country. They no longer teach in school that MONEY MUST BE CREATED and that it is only created by PRODUCTION. After an item is produced, and sold, then it passes through the other layers of the economy (service, support, medical, etc) 3 to 4 times and then is effectively *gone* and more money must be created.

What is the net result? Of the 2% of money available to the 98% of us not insanely wealthy, 75% of it is held by our parents - and we aren't getting any of it. Our job prospects are half what theirs were and are, and if you can't understand that then read the paragraph above a second time, slowly.


Now, HMTmom and Anthony:

Some HMT sponsors use American made products and manage to turn a decent profit for their time and effort. Stealthmode may be a white supremacist knuckle dragging monkey who doesn't understand how it's possible to insert a divider wall inside of a collector, but I believe he uses Parker fittings in his oil line kits. Parker-Hannifin is an *American* company, who invested in America during the depression, as opposed to selling America out to create the next depression in exchange for a marginal personal profit.

It gets even more dismal than that, when you inspect Chinese foreign policy. Most predictions are that we will be at war with them in the next 50-100 years... yet we demonize the Arab Emirates (benign, despite racist ASSumptions based on creed, skin color, and region) so they cannot control one of our ports, while the ChiComs firmly hold a dozen. China's gross national product will exceed ours in the next five years - well, they have all of our PRODUCTION jobs, does this surprise you? - they currently have the third largest auto maker in the world (I did not stutter, keywords: third and world, pun intended as long as you realize it's not funny).

I suggest you think about two things very carefully at this juncture in time:

1) Long term investment in the American economy, as opposed to short term profit while your target market dies because their money is flowing out of this country. It starts with raising hell to your elected official of choice about undoing this free trade crap. Not selling their products until they have a tarriff imposed upon them goes without saying.

2) Also, think about whether or not you want to parade the same parts sold by SSAC under our noses, obvious CLONES of brand name products, and then claim they are totally different. We are not idiots, and don't like the insinuation. Are you going to keep insisting that we do not know where these parts originate?

Your acting like this stuff isn't comming from China. Can you tell the difference between a real Rolex watch and the one sold on a street corner for $1.00? We can tell a difference between quality and crap. I mean look at the tach your selling:



It looks like it should be in the toy isle at Wal-Mart. If you want to sell crap than fine but don't insult our intelligence by saying we don't know where it comes from and try to say the quality is on the same level as something like this:




But look how long xoxo motorsports lasted on HMT, and he was selling the same stuff as your offering. Good luck SSAutoCoach

It's funny how someone would change their direction quick like "--that--". from hater to lover You made it sound like they are made in Tawain or somthing, which, if u can really sources tawain turbos that`s be great coz quality are pretty good over there.

Like someone mention above, selling those parts are one way to make "quick" cash, not even possible to be a long term thing becasue of the problem you will be dealing with, such as long term failiure and damaged engine, which occur pretty frequrenly, fins seperated from hitting the housing then went inside the engine lol. I am pretty sure no business would want to replace a thousand dollars built engine. SO the only way out is to "credit" your customer the cost of the turbo and left then hanging with a ---- up block, which also occue pretty often, and it gives you a bad name.

A decent turbo with controlled quality that is made CDM cost just as much as a decent turbo made in the States and the quality are identical. Theres no point and not possible to obtain the same quality over the price you are now paying.

Selling cheap stuff is a one time thing and I could care less if you sell them all on ebay for one dollar. But selling them here to me is like you are going too far by trying to make every singal penny out of everyone here.
