      ok to go china with this part? anyone have any experience? I googled the part number and found one for like 12 bucks shipped vs 45 for oem/bosch. For 12 bucks, I think i'm willing to take a chance but wanted to see if there was a consensus or not.

      If a $30 difference is worth the possible frustration, you be the judge.

      I personally wouldn't.

      Smart man. That is what I would do for the price difference for sure.

      Then again be prepared to open the box and find the OEM one was made in China anyhow. Seems to be the way it goes these days.

      The oem one looks exactly the same as the one in the link. I just assume it's a knock off based on how cheap it is. Probably the same as how the knock off Bosch injectors look.
