Get ePID for products in Parts and Accessories catalog

Hello, I would like to retrieve the ePID from Ebay's catalog for Parts & Accessories. I have tried different calls from the Product and Shopping API's but I get no results when I search for keywords found in the Parts & Accessories catalog like "Flowmaster" or "Magnaflow." The result is the same for the EBAY-US or EBAY-MOTOR site ids. The calls work for non-parts examples that I have tried like "iPhone, Harry Potter, etc." I want to mimic this search: http://www.ebay.com/parts/lookup I have tried these calls: Product API - findProducts Product API - getProductDetails Shopping API - FindProducts Any advice is much appreciated. Thanks, Jay

My call is querying the main Ebay site even though I have the siteID set to 100 for Ebay Motors. Can you please send me a full code sample for the call you are using?
