It has been discussed before... with many other models and brands.
The general consensus is that the cost of buying and upgrading a crapsoft is equal or more than the price of the original TM. Plus aftermarket parts are designed around the original TM design so you have to deal with any fitment/reliability issues.
Get a TM if you have access to both. No point upgrading a clone not even being certain that the aftermarket will even put the clone up to the standard of the original. If you're going to upgrade, why not put some quality parts into the quality original right?
