The last time I was at Vans picking up bits, there was another guy at the counter buying new isolation mounts and he asked the tech about the differences too. Apparently there is not much difference between the brands and Vans sources from the one that will give them the best deal based on their volume. Over time there are price increases and Vans is able to get a better deal from a new vendor.
If someone has actual data showing longer prop or engine life with one brand vs another, please share, I'm sure many of us would love to see it, but I think Vans just leverages their volume to keep costs down.
