SCT programmer, gauges, intake, exhaust... as far as what is illegal it depends on where you live... most programmers are *off-road* only...at least in california

thanks for the quick reply. For the most part is it programmers that have the legal issues and is it the programmer or certain program on it.

16?? Learn to drive it before you start modding it. No offense, but experience goes a Loooong way partner. I've seen too many young drivers hurt, killed, or do the same to others b/c of inexperience. Hellofva nice first ride though. Just be cautious.

well depends on where you live... most of the time its ok but if you live in a state like CA that is so anal about anything done to your cars/trucks then they can bust you for moding the engine...

I live out in the country where you learn to drive a lot earlier than usual. But besides that I am thinking more towards a lift intake and exhaust and possibly a programmer not the crazy stuff like turbos injectors and other things.

by california law....ANY product that modifies the way the engine performes by changing fuel, timing, etc, etc parameters directly or indirectly is illegal to run on any road maintained by taxpayers

in laim mans terms...any chip.....tuner......or programmer. On top of that most open air filters are not legal for on road use in cali either....

tons of people use them...but to answer only our initial question...there it is....if it was me though...i would be running the best bang for my buck regardless of the law...
