I am shopping for what will be my last truck, at my age...I am being picky with certain things, and having a hard time finding a 5.9L truck that fits all the criteria....I would really like a later model than an 06...maybe an 09..., one with a 6.7L engine, but I don't want the reduced mileage or the problems with the emissions stuff......
Tree-huggers don't bother to lecture......there is nothing about your green agenda I am interested in....you guys are cool though..
What are the ramifications of removing emissions controls from a 6.7L engine? legal issues? thanks
you remove the junk, your your own warranty station...
with that said, there are lots of sources for removing the junk, all of them require fooling the computer with a plug in box or programer... some require sensors to be replaced with false ones that will keep the computer thinking the device is still working..
most that have done the delete hang onto the parts, just in case they have to re-install the junk..
my truck is still stock.. have had no issues that wasn't related to a driver learning the difference between gas and diesel engine operation and quirks... like the throttle operated by electronic's, not a foot operated cable... which all new vehicles use..

With the way the engine controls are monitored and run by a computer, removing the emission control items would cause some problems with driveability, and leave a big red light on your dash.
I have a 2007 RAM 6.7 with 40,000 miles on it and have had no emission related problems since the ECU update was performed shortly after I bought it.

Depends on what state you live in, whether your state of residence has emission testing.
my state doesn't at present...anytime the government at any level could change that..which is the nexus for concern..
what is involved with removing the emissions controls that are causing problems? Is it software? Is it hardware? Or, a combination of both? thanks.
Check out the Cummins forum there is a huge delete crowd over there and they do have a wealth of knowledge on deleting the 6.7's. I think the biggest ramifications would be warranty issues if you ever had one and then of course if your state adopted emissions testing you would have to put it all back together to pass and get your registration.
