GUYS, THIS COULD CHANGE EVERYTHING!!!!!

Gentlemen,

Have you read the latest headlines..............."Obama To Let States Set Emission Standards". California and 13 other states are apparently about to get the "green light" from President Obama to do just that! With some of the chatter that's going on here in CA, our future (especially if you want to mod your truck) is rather dim. This of course for those of us with the 7.3L and 6.0L engines. All of the newer trucks appear to be safe................for now. From what I hear, the new 6.4L engines (current configuration) may not meet the upcoming 2010 emission standards.

I probably wouldn't feel so bad if CA were not one of the states given the green light.....................if they had their way, you couldn't mod your trucks at all! And we all know that as the old saying goes................."as it happens in CA, so goes the rest of the country". This latest mandate by the Obama administration, coupled with the CARB (California Air Resources Board) regs and the EPA------------------------NOT GOOD FOR DIESEL GUYS LIKE US!

Your Thoughts?

We already do emissions on diesels, as far as I know. I haven't had to do mine yet, but I'm pretty sure they do the whole dyno, and pipe stiffer thing like they do with my gassers.

NObama really has no clue. This is not what an ailing auto industry needs right now. This is just a vote-buying ploy to please the envirofascists. There is a special place in hell for these people - try fighting global warming there!

Psssst-

Global warming isnt the problem its GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE. That way they can still claim to be saving the earth, despite the fact that the last 10 years have been cooler than years in a while. Earf has been cooling since 1998.

Not only that......diesel will never die, dont care what the standards are. Sorry, you wont see big rigs on gas any time soon, or farm equipment on gas........or even the lowly dually pickup pulling 15 round bales on gas...

Read this:
CA Diesel inspections

It all starts here in CA in 2010. Apparently, they will start sending out notices to diesel owners like they do gasser owners. It will have to be done before they will let you register it. It sounds like they'll be looking for aftermarket stuff. So...if you have some, be sure it has a CARB E.O. number attached. That number is issued to the manufacturer once their aftermarket parts are approved for use on the vehicles.

I have a MBRP 4" exhaust without an E.O.# - I'm gonna be trying to get ahold of them to see if they will approved before 2010. Not currently approved. In the above file, there is a link to see what is approved. My K&N has an E.O., so I'm good there.

It's gonna get interesting.....
