Firstly, they offers twinscroll. I have a TD06SL2 60-1 right here. A dozen of my friend had the TD05-20g twinscroll as well as the TD06SL2-20g right on their car. Also, it seems to me that you have never been to Japan although you have claimed to have stayed here for 15 years. If you have been here for 15 years. You should have seen the steep recline in our manufacturing business. And how most manufacturing factories closed down to turn to Taiwan for their manufacturing needs.

It doesn't mean that ONLY engineers and QC-ers from Japan makes better and higher quality parts. You ARE stereotyping. Although I'm a Japanese. I want to tell you, We used to be the best in manufacturing 20 years ago. but now? NO. Taiwan has far surpassed us. Thats why all of us are turning to Taiwan for our manufacturing needs. Also, I want to tell you. CHINA is NOT TAIWAN.
Taiwan has far better skills and strict QC.

Again, you are talking **** that you don't know. As I have said, Take a trip down to Kamak's factory. And Kamak IS Kinugawa. It was just a brand OEM by Kinugawa. Kamak offers support for the line of Kinugawa directly.

take a look at how they manufacture their stuffs. If one could have such benchmarking and testing equipment in their manufacturing plant. I guess they are not fooling around and also, Kamak has been in this business for years.

Most stuff is being made in China these days, that's without question. What separates the wheat from the chaff is how much is being spent on QC and engineering.

again, THEY ARE MADE IN TAIWAN NOT CHINA. It's a vast difference between Taiwan and China in terms of QC and manufacturing.
