DynoJet fined $1,000,000 for clean air violations.


The American Motorcylist Association reports that the California Air Resources Board completed an investigation of the Power Commander ignition module produced by DynoJet Research, and found it to be in violation of the agency's emissions standards...
CARB said that the installation of these devices would adversely affect the emissions control systems of vehicles that were certified by the original equipment manufacturers to comply with the agency's emissions standards. Dynojet has now certified a California version of the "Power Commander" and has agreed to pay $1,000,000 in penalties to the California Air Pollution Control Fund.

I'm sure all of you are all already aware of this but if you modify your ECUs you may be violating state and federal polution regulations. Modified ECUs are for OFF ROAD USE ONLY.

And don't forget the speed limit is 55mph.

Of course I guess you could use the Map Switch line to run both legal maps and OFF ROAD  maps.

That is very interesting - do you have a link to the original source of this information ?

Modifying the ECU can also reduce the emissions, in case the user has made changes to the engine. I would be interested why particularly the ignition module - is there a problem how it works or is it generally so that changing ignition will highly affect emissions ? If the latter then most likely also TRE as a device will fail CARB tests.

Also if its the latter this may explain why gears 1-4 the ignition maps are so retarded with partial throttle openings.
