Well.. if a reputable manufacturer makes parts in China in their own factory (or at their favourite sub-contractor) then they're likely to be as well made as parts from anywhere else... but if they're made as pattern parts then I think you're taking a punt.
I had an "unknown" ICV from fleabay (£35 vs £200 for a Bosch item). It looked the same, felt the same, was brand new rather than 130,000 miles old.. but the idle was lumpy.. until it finally settled at 1100rpm (too high). The old Bosch one - cleaned out and re-fitted, once I saw from the copy that the little slot inside was a wheel valve, supposed to rotate, rather than just be black gunge... gives me a teeeeeny flat spot off idle but lets the car idle perfectly.
No bullets for Chaingun..
