On this episode I detail the new fine that was handed out by the EPA to Perfomance Diesel Inc for 1.1 million dollars and what that means for the tuning industry as a whole. The EPA has also started a task force called the National Compliance Initiative: Stopping Aftermarket Defeat Devices for Vehicles and Engines
The sole purpose of this task force is: This NCI will focus on stopping the manufacture, sale, and installation of defeat devices on vehicles and engines used on public roads as well as on nonroad vehicles and engines.
So, basically any tuning on your vehicle (gas or diesel) must be 50 state legal. It does not matter if the vehicle in question is an offroad or race vehicle. It still must remain emissions compliant. The way all of this information is worded it does not matter if your vehicle is gas or diesel. The factory tuning or 50 state (CARB) tuning must be used in the vehicle. Where this situation gets interesting is when you look at truck and tractor pulls. Most of those engines are some type of Cummins, Powerstroke, or Duramax. Even competition vehicles cannot be deleted or roll coal.
