I'm going to have to agree with jbarker on this one. Gale is trying to get them to design the tests so that ALL manufacturers can make "legal" aftermarket parts.
With that being said CA is the biggest cluster F*** of a state I have ever seen. I don't understand why they keep letting liberals run it into the ground
Keep in mind to that CA is just the latest state to implement these rules. Around 20 other states had rules in place years before we did. For those that don't they're coming. For example in Texas:
Texas Low Emission Diesel (TxLED) Program - Texas Commission on Environmental Quality - www.tceq.state.tx.us

Applicability Period: All Year

Rule/Citations: 30 TAC 114, Subchapter A, §114.6 ( PDF)( HTML ) and Subchapter H, Division 2, §§114.312-114.319 ( PDF)( HTML )
Description: The goal is to lower emissions of NOx and other pollutants from diesel-powered motor vehicles and nonroad equipment. It applies to diesel fuel producers, importers, common carriers, distributors, transporters, bulk terminal operators, and retailers. The rule covers 110 counties in the eastern half of Texas, including the ozone nonattainment areas of Beaumont-Port Arthur, Dallas-Fort Worth, and Houston-Galveston-Brazoria. The rule requires that diesel fuel as defined under 30 TAC §114.6 produced for delivery and ultimate sale to the consumer –for both on and nonroad use – must contain less than 10 percent by volume of aromatic hydrocarbons and must have a cetane number of 48 or greater. Some compliance options are allowed.
