There are like seven pages now. Looks like I was wrong, no EO number coming. Question is, does that matter?

Of course it matters, thats why I posted it. The following was taken from Dodge's remarks and it should serve to ease a lot of the angst that people may have about buying the Mopar Kits. "Mopar might not offer everything you want out of an OEM, but they do offer you more than any other aftermarket company. Mopar offers awesome performance for a great price with proven durability. The kits are developed by the same people with the same resources to the same standards as the production vehicles. This includes over 400 hours of engine dyno tuning, over 400 hours of in-vehicle calibration in all ambient conditions, and over 500 hour of durability testing. " My point!!! The kits are designed for max hp/durability/and reliabilty. If the PVO team didn't put it in there, then there is a reason for it and it is highly unlikely that "we" are going to come up with an improvement in one area without drastically affecting another.

I agree with you. Most can't get past the warranty and emissions legality. Mopar saying our kit will be the best of all worlds doesn't do it for some.

You put your money down,you take your chances, it has been this way in the go-faster world for ever. What is the big deal? Do you want mother DCX to make the payment for you also.

I see this topic was removed. I guess The SRT forum is invoking their right to CENSORSHIP.

For me it is simple no EO no buy the parts unless it is a simply part that has no barring on emissions and is not apparent. I dont want to have to take things off my car every other year for inspections and when I turn my car in in 4 years at end of lease!!

If PVO would have designed the system to pass CARB in the first place we would not be having this conversation and do not tell me it was not possible or expensive, we do it every day and we do not have all the Factory engineering sitting in front of us, we have to disect the ECU, which can cost some money. All the original R&D should have included CARB exemption. Apparently the Stage I PCM is not OBD II compliant and the stage I-II-III........ Were never intended to be emissions legal from the start and easily could have been. My guess is there was a rush to market it.
What I now ask is why the original B.S. I received from TurboG and BJ@DCX that the kits were pending CARB approval when all along they were never designed to be and never could be! For a company not to be able to see the benefits to emissions legal performance parts is uncomprehensible,stuuupid.
Those of you who say well don't buy it are missing the point, we could have had the same performance and be emissions compliant if PVO would have took the initiative, not the shortcut. Could have been the best of both worlds, instead the best of no worlds.
