Has anyone recently bought a MSD distributor cap & rotor kit??

I bought one for my fiero V6 and behind the box it says "Made in China".

What's this now?? I thought this was a US company with US quality.

That's the exact reason I bought MSD because it is a US made product, however...not now.

Unless MSD has a line of products made there, I really thought it was US made parts.

For car enthusiasts like me, it gets worse every year.

I researched that MSD has changed ownership, probably that explains why the management wants to make
more money by getting their products made in China. Bastards...


Edit for spelling.

I see a lot of that changing in the near future as China is starting to demand more; however, it's kind of just something we're stuck with... really sticks, I know. The quality of most of these products is VERY noticeable too.

a lot of borg-warner distributors (BWD) products are still made here.

I have a "bwd select"cap and rotor from them made in the usa.

I suspect it's because most consumers "demand" low prices. Something's got to give, and that's usually the quality of the products and/or where the items are manufactured.

Yep I have a Borg Warner ICM from Oriellys, run for 2 years so far no prob.

Its going to get gharder and harder to get American made as time goes on.

For a dist cap and rotor I ordered an MSD one for a 4.3 (because it fits the 2.8 too) and it appears to be American. But one never knows.
