    EPA ENFORCEMENT TARGETS PRODUCTS THAT SUPPORT OFF-HIGHWAY, COMPETITION RACERS!

    ”EPA has taken the public position that a vehicle designed and sold for on-highway use, such as a common rail diesel pick-up truck, can never be converted to an off-highway, race vehicle if that conversion impacts emissions controls or emissions. EPA is currently enforcing this position through the EPA’s 2020-2023 National Compliance Initiative (NCI), as well as other methods.

    PPEI believes there exists (and has always existed) an exception under the Clean Air Act for modifying emissions and emission controls for motor vehicles that have been permanently converted to off-highway race vehicles. In response to EPA’s public position and its NCI enforcement, effective 9/16/2019 at 2pm, PPEI will halt sales of race products. PPEI will continue to sell its products designed for on-highway use and is making great strides in expanding the line of on-highway products that deliver the performance that our customers desire.”

    Yep, not good news. The administration needs to reel in the overreaching EPA.

    I wasnt the original poster but I guess you could say that. It's just common sense. EPA was the cause of the egr, scr, def, etc so if you turn it off its "illegal". Funny thing is, the early trucks rolling coal were legal. My 02 duramax didnt have anything but a muffler from the factory. Adding fuel to roll coal was neither here nor there.

    This same story made it's rounds in the Land Speed Racing world about 4-5 years ago. EPA threaten to smog check race cars in California IF they had a vin number even if they were not street legal or registered.

    Mostly common sense in the aftermarket world.

    Many motor sports will die because of this, unless they all run stock. RIP

    Could be a smoke show to gain voluntary compliance, if they've done it before as was claimed.

    Most likely the aftermarket goodies will be on line from other countries of origin to help folks to avoid prosecution... (EBay) And to obtain a tune ,it only takes a computer, Kinda hard to shut down the internet.... Quite a few Tuner companies went underground about a year ago , it’s kinda like a speak easy situation...
