Default Anyone try Chinese MAP Sensor?

Hey Nasioc,
I know a MAP Sensor is critical, can blow your engine, etc etc

Question is, has anyone tried out a cheap sensor from China, like this: this?

Looks very similar to the AEM unit. I also know that some products are just re branded generic units, like the MAC 3 port.

Any info would be highly appreciated

I would go for it.

A lot of OEM parts are now getting remanufactured to oem spec in china. Nothing wrong with that. American's aren't going to do it and the Japanese are too busy with innovation. A MAP sensor isn't high-tech and for todays standards, neither is an EJ-series engine.

I am running a $20 shipped chinese MAC sensor and guess what? On the box itself is saying WIXOM MI and then another address in Taiwan. Its the exact same part as the Grimspeed, etc, only difference - no mounting bracket.

I have family in Wixom and yes at one point it was the corvette capital of 'murica, but 'dem days be long gone. Seeing any mass produced little component for anything mechanical and you are going overseas.

OP, ignore /\ this advice. O2, MAF and MAP sensors should all be OEM -OR- manufactured by the OEM supplier (Denso, for example).

I agree with this, there are some sensors that dont play very well with the computers. you have to understand that these are all metering sensors, so calibration is huge when it comes to the computer reading correctly. but you can try, just if it doesnt work, then you are going to be out twice as much
