    Well, I have my complete AEM setup, depending how bad it gets. Did someone post this back in June?

    EPA announces FY 2020-2023 Priorities for Enforcement and Compliance Assurance | US EPA

    Stopping Aftermarket Defeat Devices for Vehicles and Engines – This NCI will focus on stopping the manufacture, sale, and installation of aftermarket defeat devices on vehicles and engines used on public roads as well as on nonroad vehicles and engines. Illegally-modified vehicles and engines contribute substantial excess pollution that harms public health and impedes efforts by the EPA, tribes, states and local agencies to plan for and attain air quality standards.

    Sounds like it would be an issue for people that want to go o/r exhaust and EGR delete. The tuners are not going to risk there skin, could bring big time fines to them.

    It sounds like purchasing a tuner in the future that actually works will be eliminated. Have to see how the rule making shakes out.

    I don’t think they will go that far, they would be killing off a big industry. Or at lest I hope they won’t go that far. Only time will tell.

    They will do it. It’s not about the environment either. As computer controlled gains can still pass smog 2.

    The government wants to control the masses.

    Well guys we have to fight global warming. Miami is going to be under water in like 6 years or something. Then how would 16 y/o down syndrome kids for Scandinavia sail across the ocean to scold us for our environmental sins.

    Bah global warming. If everyone is so worries about global warming head on over to China or India and preach to them.

    That’s my whole thing, it’s called “Global Warming” not United States warming. We all contribute to pollution but only certain countries have to do something about it.

    It looks like they are also going to try and end racing of every kind.

    Wonder how much money we could save by cutting the EPA out? They going to put a stop to global trade because of the pollution caused by the ships? Right, nevermind that shit.

    Interesting question. What would happen if America put a stop to all finished product trade? Everything sold here had to be produced here?
    Is there anything produced that we could not produce/build here?

    EPA should be more worried about jet fuel being dumped and water filtration then a few cars running around on the weekends without cats

    My 00R is not street legal and will not need to be tuned. Will the epa take my car off the trailer and test it?

    Maybe Elon Musk should stop polluting the atmosphere and ground all of SpaceX’s rockets. What is the carbon footprint of one of those rocket?

    If the EPA would get their way your car being not street legal will not matter at all. They want to change the rules for all vehicles. Street, race, etc...

    Wayment... Can’t we just claim a sanctuary state and ignore any EPA laws?
