Im convinced all this huff over dpf delete tuners is BS!
Why would the EPA prevent someone from selling a dpf delete tuner?? It just dosn't make sense. 1st of all why the hell would they care, 2nd of all what authority do they have to govern commerce?
The tuner itself and the company producing it is not breaking the law by providing just goods. Its up to the public to choose to break a law by disabling emissions equipment. As long as the product comes with a disclaimer then the company assumes no liability. Its the same principal as guns don't kill people, people kill people.
You can buy drag tires, or high octane gas. Neither of which are legal to use hwy use but that doesn't keep companies from selling the products.
Further, I am under the general assumption (based on everything I have read) that the new tuners are no different than the old. The only exception is that the dpf delete screen/function is either hidden or locked. For a phone call to a sales rep and an additional fee they'd be glad to unlock the device for you!
So now we are down to buying a "street" tuner and paying a nominal $150 fee to unlock. 550 for street tuner plus 150 is $700 thats still cheaper than paying some idiot on CL for a used "race" tuner $1300. Because, he bought the "last shipment" or 300 brand new units.
This thing (to me) reeks of collusion!
So, aside from that (if anyone has read this far down) I take it that any plug in programmer with the ability to store custom tunes can delete the dpf. So a SCT tuner ($200 used) loaded with a custom written tune ($100) can get the job done. Whats wrong with this? Should work right?? Save the pipes of course and any labor spent installing the pipes and tuner.
