Counterfeits

Why Genuine GAC

Imitation Is By No Means The Sincerest Form of Flattery...

Counterfeit products often elaborately mimic individual boxes, engraved marks, etc., making it difficult to discriminate them from genuine products at a glance. In many cases, these counterfeit products have safety and quality problems. At Governors America Corp. (GAC), our brand stands for something, and we hope that consumers know that anything carrying our authentic trademark can be relied upon.

Counterfeit products may appear the same, but they fail to meet the expected performance promise due to inferior quality materials. As GAC is committed to your safety and the best performance of your engine, we recommend you use only GAC genuine parts from your GAC dealer or distributor.
