    I don't know theres just something about the word imitation, that doesn't sound too appealing to me.

    I would guess that it should work. Since it's an imitation, I think the lifespan of that unit might very well be less.

    the lifespan of a motor on an fmu is probably less than the fmu anyway :lol:

    if you decide to go with cheap fuel managment, I'd at least go with name brand cheap fuel managment. But in most cases, the brand name/"imitation" stuff both come from the same factory in china anyways. Just different stickers. Thats how you choose name brand vs. non. Find out if the name brand parts really are manufactured in a different place, using better parts etc. Otherwise, they are the same shit as everything else.
