Motives are made overseas and the FRPP A's are made in the USA.

the difference is you'll pay twice if you buy the Motive gears first. Just get the FRPP gears and call it a day

The two product codes that I have always used are 373N and 410A - they are American made, as stlwagon mentioned. This is why you typically find them to be the most popular and the best quality. The other numbers are motive re-boxed part numbers and will end up making noise, or worse...

I got motive 4.10's installed and now i regret it. The shop that done my car has done hundreds of gear installs and i really wish that i had got frpp gears to begin with, they don't whine while coasting but whine loud as hell when set on cruise, the faster i drive the worse they whine.
