: First off "attitude, schmattitude"

: I learned at a young age, if you pull the dog's
: tail, be prepared for the bite.

: Now, onto what we were discussing (while I'm
: not uncooth enough to post Steve's private
: email)..

: Steve keeps talking about "innovation" in the
: light of "adaption" not "returning things to
: stock"

: Now.. notwithstanding that adaption doesn't do
: that.. it simply handles environmental changes
: and engine wear.. but for the sake of argument
: let's talk about the innovation that would
: make it stop "changing things"

: Well, that "innovation" is playing with how
: the adaption does it's job.

: And Steve know's exactly who he and I are talking
: about in this context.

: Adaption is considered an "emissions component"

: and MESSING with adaption is considered by the
: federal (and some state) governments as
: "emissions tampering".

: Emissions Tampering is a big no-no!!

: It's a federal offense, and in some states,
: like NJ, MA, and CA, it's also a state offense

: Pretty much the same as removing your cats.

: Now, you may be wondering why we're talking
: about this.. simple.. because some tuners cut
: corners and turn things off (like adaption)
: in order to impress customers who don't understand
: all the ramifications (legal and environmental)

: I won't do that.. neither will Dinan or any
: of the "big" tuners.
