    its a personal and finantual choice buddy. you get what you pay for in life and if you caunt afford genuine you take your chance with non-gen. there are differences in quality no matter what some people may tell you. my opinion is if you are buiding your car from the ground up, you obviously want to do a decent job of it. i would go for genuine parts as i know the difference fitting both gen and non gen parts on a daily basis. are you putting the car on track days? lowering it? keeping it standard? you may want to considder performance parts for the first two but if keeping standard you caunt go wrong with genuine. the quality isnt the question because its gen parts all the way, its just the wallet ime affraid.
