Chinese J-109 Igniter

Anyone tried the Chinese version of the J-109's? I think the common model number is MM471. I had my reservations but the GM HEI ignition modules I'd been using are Chinese so figured they can't be too far off in quality from those. I started with a half dozen spare J-109's but over the years they have thinned out so figured I'd try the Chinese versions.

If you use Chinese parts, you are depriving America of much of their food supply...
Made in China = ****

Thanks for your wonderful opinion.

The chinese made should be fine, many electronic suppliers are ordering chinese made silicon these days. Whats the price point on those?

As opposed to driving an old Japanese car instead of buying a new American car?

$27 shipped, I ordered 4. They have actually gone for less on ebay but there weren't any auctions going at the time.
