Fact is deleting emissions equipment is illegal. You broke the law, hence GM is going to tell you to pack sand. Thank your nearest overreaching, corrupt and criminal bureaucrat for there draconian laws.

Yeah, the very idea of polluting less is just crazy. GM needs a rollin-coal RPO code.

As a father to 3 children I like to keep pollution to a minimum, and spent $500 extra on my fathers gen 5 Camaro header install for a catted high flow x-pipe even though he lives in an area without emissions testing. However, explain to me how strip mining the earth for rare metals to create aftertreatment systems to severely restrict exhaust flow. The addition of a fuel injector directly in the exhaust that does no useful work, or driving extra miles to complete a regen, all of which burn MORE fuel, or the manufacture, distribution, and sale or urea (DEF) is good for the environment?

Nothing to do with the environment, and everything to do with more control and more money. The limits don't even make any sense, and contradict themselves. So particulates are bad and carcinogenic. So you up compression and injection pressures for a hot, efficient and complete combustion and drive particulates to near zero, but then NOX emissions rise, so add EGR (which is horrible on diesels) to lower O2 levels and cool combustion to lower NOX but particulates spike again. Add DPF to trap particulates and lose efficiency and burn extra fuel for no additional work. Add urea to kill the NOX, so your HD truck, that now burns more fuel, which directly contributes to more CO2, will actually improve air quality if driven through NYC. This is asinine and pure over regulation. The technology hasn't matured as evidenced by the amount of failures. Yes emissions need to improve as technology allows, but please explain to me how the drastic increase in complexity, additional equipment manufacture, and loss of efficiency is good for the environment?

To add insult, all of these manufacturers sell versions of this equipment overseas without the aftertreatment systems, that is cheaper to purchase, cheaper to maintain, and runs more efficiently, but emits slightly more harmful emissions (although less of them due to increased efficiency) all over the world. Last I checked we all live on the same planet, so pollution is pollution.

I am on the fence about emissions. One the one hand we can run trucks in the shop now without exhaust stacks on them. Years ago if you started a truck in the shop you needed to either get it out right away or get a stack on it F'N quick. They would smoke out the shop in 10 seconds. In some places the air coming out of the exhaust is cleaner then what is going in if everything is working correctly. I love this part of it. Plus no smell etc.

No on the other hand there is so much more to go wrong and it does go wrong. If not under warranty it is very expensive to fix. We have most of this stuff figured out now but 5 years ago it was a PITA when something went wrong. Sometimes no one knew what was faulty with the system including the manufacturer and relied on guys like me to figure it out and once we did to let everyone else know what was going on. It was a very stressful time to be a mechanic. Each change they come out with every couple years meant we had to once again figure things out. But we are stuck with it.
