Sorry I don't have a camera right now so will show you later.

Part #12341-PR4-A00
What seems wrong?

Smells like Honda? haha what a perfect way to determine authenticity of Honda Parts.

Dude, almost everything is made in China, and if it isn't, it will be soon. Did you just get out from under the rock?.....

Ill admit im kind of surprised at that. I thought the Japanese carmakers were super strict about their parts.

Would you believe that many hondas are built in Canada or is that to hard to understand too? Why wouldn't they do like everyone else and send it to the lowest bidder.

WOW! really??? Honda is made over in Canada....Whoaaa! I wonder if they make them in Europe and Asia, too. Oh I bet they even make then USA!!

Okay, lets not take this over board. I'm very well aware of car mfging being done in different countries. Its just the irony of seeing my trusted parts being made in China, China is known for poor quality and the huge quantity of stuff they spit out. Times change I just wanted to point it out.

It's a valve cover gasket...doesn't take much "know how" to run a factory for making those Click the image to open in full size.

Honda, like any other company, outsources everything. BUT, it must meet Hondas specs(where most companies don't really care).
