So, I sssume, your friends miraculous emission control "Hack" died with the engine and lost forever???



It would make a good...excellent write-up???



Also , the thread was about DPF on 12yr old truck ! Old news. Plus DPF was like $2k + up to $3k and now you can buy it for $500 from dealer ( as per LindenENG)

"Hack " was at around 80k , I believe.
At the time I posted thread - he had 200k . Engine lasted to almost 400k and died of OVERHEATING when towing . His boat is about 8k pounds. He bought brand new Duramax diesel for towing that boat

Sounds to me like his whole TRUCK was a JUNKYARD!

You guys hail from California? How is (was) he getting this POS to pass emissions for zillions of miles, while carving away most of the emissions control systems, and towing boats at 160% of the rated towing capacity?

Nice resurrection of old tread about 12 yr old car . 12 yr ago that DPF was like up to $3000 and you can buy it now for under $500.
TRUCK was passing emission test .
That JUNKYARD is 3500 dually and , as you know, some of them are rated to 7500 lb towing , so do your math again about 160%.
What is your concern ?

My concern is jackasses who think the rules don't apply to them. So they do stupid ****.

Then my wife gets killed because his boat and trailer combination are thousands of pounds over the rating of the tow vehicle. (Trailer weight probably 2k or so?)
Any then my kid gets asthma because of diesel particulates ( mostly with tiny little VW logos on them ).

Little things like that. You can't have millions of people living in increasingly close proximity without rules.
