    Hey now, don't try to shift blame to other countries! You!... and only you are the one polluting the world!

    I saw that unfortunately…I bought my car last year and have had some health issues that required surgery to take care of before I did anything. Now that I’m able to, I see that ngauge went out of business, he doesn’t offer SCT support, and that new HP tuner thing, which looks like a pain in the ass.

    Apparently the shit-show express is only picking up speed…

    Once self driving cars become a thing the makers will lobby to end vehicle ownership as a safety/liability issue.

    You'll only be able to lease a car and have it serviced by the dealer. They'll then dispose and recycle cars that are "obsolete".

    Yep. Why do you think all manufacturers are going the full connected route like Tesla? It certainly isn't just to make owners' lives better. It all comes down to the bottom dollar. Right to repair has some relation to all this as well, and I hope the conversations merge and become a larger overall effort. The same access that allows "tuning" is also key to certain repairs.

    I guess thankfully enough for me, my car is pretty much the way I want it, other than one day I'll need a clutch. I'll probably end up buying that RTD device just so I can continue to adjust if I need to. I really feel bad for Lund racing, I can't imagine how much bullshit they're going through. I wounder if VMP or PBD is going through the same shit.

    That’s a good question. I’m also curious as to why he isn’t using SCT devices which is leaving me to go with either AED or PBD.

    My local shop/friend put a hold on doing any tuning for the time being because of this. Right when I was about to do an intercooler and dyno tune on the truck too.

    I think I remember my brother mentioning that Tesla can refuse to charge a vehicle for an unauthorized change. But then, you could still do a standard charge at home using your own outlet, but if you were on the road that would be a killer if you couldn’t use a charging station. We’re losing more and more control over the vehicles we drive.

    I honestly don't know, I'm going to email my calibrator and ask what are my options. I know SCT got a knock on the door from the Feds, so not sure whats going to happen to them. I'm sure PDB is next on there list.
    I've been using SCT since 2011, I've never had any issues with them, but I know some people hate them lol.

    They have had multiple hits from the feds over the years. Some threads on here elude to it, with the removal of certain features from the software...

    Nobody will do anything. Who controls the EPA? It ain't elected officials, just like most branches. Then there is the courts... yeah nothing.

    I believe that came about because of their purchase of bullydog or whatever diesel tuner it was

    Unfortunately you're right, just sucks what's happening to the car industry and gun industry.
    That would make sense, still sucks Lund isn't using them anymore.

    When will most in the country realize it is no longer "by the people"... because it sure is hell is not for the people. Too busy putting on their pussy hats and jerking off on facebook.

    I don't know, I really don't. The thing I hate most about social media is it gave way to many pussy ass people a voice that never needed one. I get it, life sucks and things aren't always fair, tough shit.
