Not sure if its a Re-Post and this is the 1st I've heard about this.

I copy & pasted this from another website.... Hope no one get's burned.

Counterfeit MSD Boxes what to look for...

Just came accross my desk that their are Counterfeit MSD 6AL boxes. The easiest way to tell is all of them have the serial number 682013. Here are some other tell tale signs:

All REAL MSD boxes have torx head screws, the counterfeits have phillips.

All REAL MSD boxes heat fins should measure no more then .150", the counterfeits vary and are larger.

All REAL MSD boxes on the end the mag input is on the left and tach output is on the right, the counterfeits are reversed.

These are in packaging that look like MSD and it is hard to tell. Please beware of a "DEAL" on these items

I've seen some that look like them but, they don't have the "MSD" logo. I think they are Pro Comp Chinese junk. Of course MSD is made there now too.

Unfortunately that's what happens when you outsource your stuff to China. It's even easier to copy the product when it's right in front of you along with the designs...

These things have been around for a couple of years that I know of.
They have been sold on a large internet auction site with headquarters in California.

Wanna hear something real funny?

I got served papers the other day from a chinese attorney in Cali who represents a chinese manufacturer. He claims I am selling a product that his client owns a patent on and wants financial compensation for lost sales as well as cease and desist.

I don't sell chinese parts on Lyonsperformance.com and don't offer the brand of product they mentioned on the tool site! I buy direct from the tool warehouse for all the products on Protoolzonline.com. Unfortunately some are asian made but also germany and other countries.

Lawyers can always make up a letter or a NastyGram as I call em
but that does not mean they are legal and binding,most lawyers as you know
are bloodsucking and just doing shit like that to make a living...
Fuck em
