How Do Tuners Get Away With Law?

If you have a new truck that has a DPF delete and tune and get busted I hear it is a major fine.

Why aren't the feds cracking down on the companies that make/support the tuners, straight pipes, etc?

Personally, I think that the EPA is the biggest waste of time/money/resources ever created. I think we should be able to run whatever we want on our rigs!

Before you buy a tuner you have to sign a disclosure guaranteeing that you will only use it for "Offroad Use". I am also verrry surprised that there's people out there who are not following these important rules. Double shame on everyone.

PS. The EPA and the CARB are a bunch of winers who want to piss in your cheerios and then make you eat them while you're forced to pay for them.

Understood. I didn't realize that you must sign a disclaimer before purchasing these products. The legality issues are removed from the vendor that way. Thanks for the clarification!

Go Ford!
