    Hey Tuners,

    Any of you have one of these?

    If the OEM is required to tag a car to amend its conformity........ what makes you think the tuners would be any less exempt?


    Want to sell your tunes for the street with a valid VIN #, than show your true tuning abilities and put your money where your mouth is.

    My recommendation to any consumer is to demand such a document, or from any tuner which is stating that their tunes are in fact legal.

    Oh and FYI ..........if you are selling in the spirit of "for off road use" .......you can't use a VIN #, and you must prove you destroyed the EPA conformity tag.

    Anyone that wants to verify if their tuner is full of shit, can go to these two convenient links to verify their bullshit story.

    https://www.arb.ca.gov/homepage.htm

    https://iaspub.epa.gov/otaqpub/publist1.jsp

    As can be seen........... legal tuners such as "Saleen Performance" or "Neuspeed" have documented data for hardware or software devices.

    https://www.arb.ca.gov/db/search/google_result.htm?q=neuspeed&which=arb_google&cx=0 06180681887686055858%3Abew1c4wl8hc&srch_words=&cof =FORID%3A11

    I bet "Wordbank" can tell you who isn't in those links............

    EPA Goes After Performance ECM Tuners – Who is next?


    Harley-Davidson has settled with the EPA with a $15 million dollar agreement after federal environmental officials filed a complaint. This expensive complaint is over the Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle tuners sold by the company. The contention from the EPA is that these tuners equate to higher emissions levels.
    Since 2008, around 340,000 of these tuners have been sold. They allow the user to modify systems and increase power and improve performance. According to prosecutors, they also allow users to illegally increase emissions of harmful pollutants like nitrogen oxide.

    This is extremely bothersome at its core. These tuners are used by consumers who own a Harley. I’m not sure why this falls under the responsibility of Harley-Davidson, and not the user to begin with. Then as far as the user goes, if they pass whatever state mandated emissions testing is required, great, leave them alone. If they’re not required to get emissions testing, great, leave them alone! I hardly see how this is Harley’s fault, but it points right to this overreach, overregulation mess we keep fighting in this industry.
    As far as an explanation from the other side goes, Clarence Ditlow, president of the Center of Auto Safety Inc. explains “What the government is doing is they’re catching up to what the industry is doing and they’re saying that ‘We’re not going to tolerate it anymore. We’re going to hit you with big penalties.’ These tuners where you can increase the performance of a motorcycle are very commonplace.”
    This seems like an ominous sign of things to come. We all know how one outcome can dictate future cases, as well as the ‘enthusiasm’ by the EPA to pursue ‘offenders’ who have decided not to walk on their arbitrary eggshells.
    Do you think this is a sign of more to come?

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.
