The way I understand it, there are practically the same in their origin, but may have some differences now.
Delphi was a sub of GM that they spun off. They still make parts for the parent company but are independent now of GM. AC/Delco is a package parts distribution arm of GM. Most GM parts manufactured at engine and transmission plants have service part packaging areas and label the boxes with AC/Delco logos.

That is some good knowledge there.

Delphi split off around 1999. Their product development for GM since then has been only part of their product development. Most of the factories they now have are overseas (China included), although they still have factories in Michigan, Ohio, and New York.

Delphi was (is) the classic perfect storm of bad management, legacy union labor, and this so-called "free-trade." What has been left behind are empty crumbling buidings in the U.S. and "Made In China" labels on the back of Delphi products.

I'm not trying to inject politics; it is what it is. That said, my vote is AC Delco. And always (ALWAYS) try your best to buy "Made In U.S.A."

WingNut out...

I agree with WingNut. In other words, "buyer beware". Neither one of them is truly OEM, in the sense that GM actually made it. GM is really an assembler of vehicles, and the parts are sourced worldwide. I don't think anyone since Henry Ford has full vertical integration of their manufacturing anymore.

I worked for Delphi, and in the end, I didn't totally understand it. Can you imagine working for a company for over 23 years and today if you go to where the engineering and part of the manufacturing used to be, it is completely GONE. I am talking acres of cement pads. Trees that used to shade buildings are now without a job.

IZN,

Do a Google earth satellite map for Flint, MI. See where all the main rail heads lead into overgrown rail switch yards. You can barely make out the old auto plants any more.
