Epartrade : Race Industry Week 2022

LS Cams : Elgin Made in USA vs. China Fakes

The tech line started buzzing with failures, and Elgin quickly identified several China counterfeit camshafts. We decided to run them in our lab before they fail in your engine.

China Fakes

  • MACHINING : Severe chatter conditions which is out of tolerance, increased friction and unwanted harmonics which radiate through the valve train, then cause premature failures.
  • TIMING : All timing events are so inaccurate that the performance would be unpredictable.
  • HEAT TREAT : Completely inadequate, non-existent in some crucial areas.

  • AUDITTING : Elgin’s in-house quality inspectors test every batch of parts for Surface Hardness, Heat Treat Case Depth, and Surface Finish, at each step of the manufacturing process.
  • TIER 1 OE SUPPLY : As an Original Equipment Supplier, all Elgin OE and aftermarket performance parts meet or exceed OE specifications. You can be assured that the same quality that goes into our new vehicle parts, is also applied to aftermarket replacement and performance parts.
