    You're right. I have a 93 F150 302 four wheel drive and wanted the Bassani Y pipe with their cat. Cant not find this anywhere, so I called. They informed me they stopped making this item long with a few others because gov said to stop. There's more behind this scene then we know on the gov cracking down.

    Now I / we have to be lucky and find a used one / or other parts someone wants on flee bay. I'll bet the price/s will be like buying platinum.

    As someone who works with the EPA..

    they’ve become so strict on their regulations that oil companies are just paying the fines instead of complying

    It's good to see so many other YouTubers picking up and promoting PFI's story. More awareness is always good. Especially with Rocky Mountain Race Week going on. Everyone gets tons of views this week.

    Looks like they dont include tunes anymore (I just did a quick search for 2020 Mustang gt). You are buying an apparatus to communicate with the ECU, thats it. Its on you to find/do tuning.

    Oh wow! So what if you have a locked/married SCT unit. Is it possible to get it unlocked/ married?

    Not saying this EPA shit isn't retarded, but calculate the MPG of a jet by miles traveled and asses in the seats and it's a very fuel efficient mode of travel. I get bored on long flights and have run the numbers. Maybe it doesn't play out once you add all the other supporting vehicles that are part of the entire operation (tugs, baggage carts, fuel trucks, the hundreds of people it takes to make a single flight go off without a hitch, etc.).
    I'm just glad I bought my ARH pipes when I realized that some other manufacturers weren't selling products anymore.

    Correct me if I am wrong. But I can not find off road mid pipes literally anywhere. All wiped clean off lethal and other sites.

    So what. it takes me 3-4 months to rack up the miles of ONE trip from NY to SD. People (politicians/rich) that fly around all over the place, put out way more emissions than my catless whatever, ever could.

    And let's get real. This is what they(EPA) want... assuming even mildly sane people are in office.

    Memphis and Nashville/surrounding have emissions. Not sure about Knox and Chatt but pretty sure they do too.

    Yup. Companies have realized they can pay a $5000 fine… or spend $35,000 trying to meet EPA guidelines PER engine. Say there are 10 on site… that shit adds up

    I think it depends on your car. My buddy just bought an 04 and had to go to a junk yard for an o/r x pipe but I can still get one for my z06.

    Any word on if HP Tuners or SCT software has been nerfed? Or can owners still self tune their cars?

    I lost my SCT device (legit.. I dont know how or where the **** but I cant find it). So its either SCT or HP Tuners once I get Ford to flash a stock calibration back in my car.

    You know the volume of emissions of an airliner per mile?
