EPA Letter From ATS

I dont know how closely you guys follow other forums or not but this has been circling around a few of them and thought I would share the info with fellow diesel investors. Now just a disclaimer, as far as I know no one has been able to verify this letter yet but it all makes to much sence for it not to be true. Letter to EPA from ATS - Competition Diesel.Com - Bringing The BEST Together
Is where the letter originated from and i know its on at least 4 other forums

I guess when your trannies suck and the companys customer relationship is even worse you gotta take out the other companys some how.

I say we boycott ATS if this is true, and Id be intrested if the .org will allow them to remain a sponsor. IMO they should ban/block ATS from this site if this is confirmed.

The law is the friggin' law, bozos. If it violates the law, you DESERVE to be caught out. If it's a sled pull only truck, go for the DPF delete if you want. If not, then you are not approved for use on the highway with a DPF delete. This sucks if you pull every weekend, but you've got to follow the law. There is a reason it is there. You love black smoke, I love black smoke, but my asthma having tree hugging girlfriend doesn't. We are in the minority. Follow the law, and let the dips***s that use the deletes on the road deal with the consequences.

If you are willing to part with yours on the cheap, help a college student out.

hmmm well thats your opinion buddy which everyone is entitled to but Id have to say that most people here are going to disagree with you on that, there are plenty of guys on this forum running DPF deletes on daily drivers
