Car Quest Nippondenso starter vs DB starter?

I need a new starter, but don't really have time to wait for one from DB Electrical. When I called my local Car Quest they said they offer either the stock Mitsu or a Nippondenso. Would the Nippo they sell be the same as the one DB sells?

I can tell you right now there is nothing like that DB starter, its about 1/3 bigger then the stocker and a gear reduction. INSANE how they sound...

Yeah, I know the DB is quite a bit different from the stock Mitsu, but they call it a Nippo. Car Quest sells the stock Mitsu and offers a Nippo as an option. I wonder if they aren't the same since they are both called Nippondensos. I know from reading on here that the DB starter isn't really a Nippondenso and is made in China. I wouldn't be surprised if Car Quest offered the same starter. I will have to stop in Car Quest and see if they have a picture of it since they don't stock it.
