They are not knock-offs, at least the ones I got. All the stamps and emblems were TEQ and such. The Raybestos were even reman'ed in USA where Toyota does their reman work in Mexico. Whether or not the parts were exactly OE I dunno, but for 1/3rd the price with warranty it seemed like a OK bet. Anyway, what's to say the Toyota sourced reman stuff is necessarily original Aisin castings? Could be anything that have been stamped with a TEQ.

"Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security. " --Albert Einstein
