At the moment I dont even know any manufacturer, what doesnt produce nozzles in china.
But in experience with china nozzles, then there is good quality, what work very good and then there is bad nozzles, what wont last long.
Gibonta nozzles wont last long and you can buy this nozzles in Aliexpress a lot cheaper.
At the moment I use 0,300 nozzles from china and drived with them 40-50k km and they still run grate. But they are to short for fueling over 300hp, above 300hp setup I use gibonta style aliexpress nozzles with size 0,370, but in my experience they last like 10k km and then they need to be changed, but for that price it is ok.

I bought a set of 4 Wuzetem .230 nozzles off Ebay some months ago.
Had them balanced at a local shop. After 10k miles they are still well within spec with a spread of 1 on VCDS, IIRC in block 13. Total cost of $350, I installed them myself.

They throw a lot of fuel and currently have an IQ of 6.4. A bit of smoke at WOT, and if I punch it ~ 2200rpm there's smoke, roll into a
bit, no problem.

Shortly I'll have a PD150 manifold intake in with boost & EGT gauges to give me some better monitoring as to what precisely is going on.

IDparts is now offering Firads at a good price. If I'd had the option 6
months ago, I would have gone for a set of the .215s over the Wuzetems.

My car is a daily driver, and more than fast enough to get me in
trouble. With a more aggressive tune, more air with the manifold,
and bump the turbo up a couple of psi, it'd be fun on the track,
but for longevity, reliability, and durability, I'm happy with the
current setup.

I've been doing a lot more towing than I ever thought
I would. After a 5k round trip with a teardrop, and a 400 mile tow coming up pulling my 2500# boat/trailer, (installing brakes as we speak), I'm confident the car will pull it, the trailer brakes will help to stop it. The nozzles are delivering the goods.

Thanks for the input from the pros on the quality issues on the various brands. The marketplace is constantly changing, and it's
all a bit of crapshoot.
