how would that prevent you from disconnecting every factory wire from the engine, building your own ECM, writing your own engine management software, wring your own tune, and connecting your one of a kind ECM to the engine, disconnecting all the emissions, and fabricating any required hardware to remove those parts? yea, its a lot of work, but it would not be possible to 100% guarantee the truck could not be deleted or modified if you were dedicated and had the tools / experience to do it. Building that ECM would probably be somewhere around senior project level as far as skills needed for an electrical or computer engineering student, so its not really outside the realm of possibilities for a DIY if you had the skills.:wink2: Until they require a plug into the OMBDII! :surprise:
The final death rattle for the deletes will be when the EPA starts to enforce and deploy All of the tools they have for this under the CAA. With what some of the crazies are doing in Kali now it is just a matter of time before at the Federal level they start playing hardball with equipment checks. Hate that it has come to this but we have only to look in the mirror to see who is to blame.
Once one person does all that work though..... its been done, and doesent necessarily need to be done again. Hell, theres probably already a solution like this out there from the gasser community. I know theres all kinds of aftermarket custom ECM's you can get and tune to do whatever you want, im sure someone makes a diesel version.
