Tomei Knockoff fuel regulator

Saw this on Tomei website that some guy/shop selling Fake Tomei Fuel Regulator to innocent customer that doesn't know nothing.. and guess what happen? the engine blew and the customer died in a tragic way... no i am just kidding. what happen is the Gauge gave a different reading when adjusting fuel, so what does this lead to???? a blown engine because not enough of fuel supply. so does the seller gonna pay for your blown engine??? no freaking way. so buy the original one, rather than spending a ton of money repairing your blown engine.

" These fake regulators are poor in quality as they have leak. This is dangerous as you know. Problems caused are engine failure and/or fire! Don’t risk your car, investment and life with these fake items. The problem is these look very close to the real ones so here is how you can tell the fake one from the real one."
