If what has happened in the past with other companies happens here, it means surely there will be no further development and simply resting your product line-up on whatever you already have.
That's what they're doing with Edelbrock.
You don't need an R&D department, if you don't plan on doing any R&D.

So who's going to be left for personal relationships, LS firing orders on Gen 1 SBCs, ?
We've got Tool Steel cores on the shelf for SBC's with LS firing order, in 50mm and 55mm journals.

After talking with a few of the interested parties during this past week, they are saying that Edelbrock got rid of their R&D because they will now use the Comp Group companies for their R&D in the future.

That certainly remains to be seen.

Makes sense, to boot the guy that has 35 years experience with induction and have him replaced with a guy thats done nothing but camshafts. 2 different areas of expertise need 2 different people. I only see this purchase a benefit to the smaller cam grinders.

In order to keep up with technology you need to have the best and innovate.. These pencil pushers think any engineer with cad experience is the same.
