    USUALLY THE BOTTOM LINE OF AN ACQUISITIONS LIKE THIS, IS THE QUALITY OF A PRODUCT DROPS PATHETICALLY THROUGH THE FLOOR DUE TO THE BOTTOM LINE PROFIT MARGIN CONCERN’s OF THE SHARE HOLDERS! BECAUSE THE MAJORITY OF THE TIME THEY HAVE NO KNOWLEDGE NOR PASSION FOR THE RACING/MOTORSPORTS INDUSTRY. ONLY THE BOTTOM LINE PROFIT MARGIN!
    MSD is a top shelf company! I hope you don’t ruin their reputation & the company by trying to increase your profit margin by decreasing quality! I would hope that you learned something from your purchases of J&E Pistons, & Your purchase of NOS From Mike! You lost your ass on that one because you thought you could increase your profit margin by decreasing your quality! This is Racing! the ultimate test in component quality! If you make a decreased quality product we will find out and you will loose your ass’ Again!
