Is Mu_gen a generic brand of Mugen or what? How do you distingish the two? I know the difference can not just be the underscore.

:yeahthat:


mugen is the name of parts used by m-tec, but sold under mugen by m-tec, who used 2 be mugen, until jdm gov. got hold of their bank statements, so mugen changed it 2 m-tec and bought the rights 2 mugen so customers familiar w/ mugen wouldnt b confused by m-tec's name. :biggrin:

Exactly. The Mugen owner got caught for tax evasion, paid his dues, bought Mugen, and opened M-Tec, who still uses the Mugen name. :D

Good one. So... does the "knockoff crap" look exactly the same and if so, should it not do the job as well?

not exactly the same..but they design it with similar body lines...
the knockoff stuff seems to look bulker,much lower to the ground, and looks like it was added on. the mugen stuff looks very tasteful almost like it belongs there.
