When i called and told them the stock number it was under they proceded to ask what year, make model my truck was, so i told them its a 2000 f350 with the zf6 and the computer numbers for the DAC3 that i got off this site. It was like they didnt believe i had this truck in california. was that because of the state smogs laws or that its rare to have that truck here? Does anone know what part of the us the 2000 model year that came with the dac3 ecu? What exactly is "federal emmisions"?
Federal emissions where the "49 state" emissions tunes that most, not all, companies ran from 96-07. In 2007 Federal emissions standards and CARB standards were so close they only offered one. For example Cummins had a CARB special engine for dodge from 1996 to early 2004. Starting in 2004.5 all ISBs passed Carb standards.
I know in CA it is based on a county by county basis how tough the smog inspection is, so I can't comment on that.
