Isn't that a big no no? Is apexi going to press charges?

Thats pretty crazy that they got it that close, would be near imposible to tell if you didn't know to look for the fake. Hopefully Apexi can shut these people down before copies of more exspensive items start popping up like the AFCs and Boost controllers.

this is the first known instance where apexi product was copied and sold as an apexi product....

it's happening with other lines, like turboXS, greddy, hks, etc, but this is the first time w/ apexi.
