Diesel owners, just a heads up
So as of yesterday this has been front page of a few forums I am on. Figured I would fill you all in here.
Due to ongoing talks with the EPA, H&S tuners have suspended all production of their tuning products.
official press release
Press Release - H&S Performance
The EPA is cracking down, this has happened to other companies in the past. SCT no longer sells canned DPF delete tunes, custom tunes are needed, edge has been also involved with the EPA with issues.
If any of you follow this you may think that due to issues in 2008 with ATS is to blame, it is not. H&S had another notice on their facebook today.

We, as a diesel community, need to band together and work towards a solution with the EPA. The only blame should be placed on an ever growing crowd of diesel enthusiasts. Because of all the support and attention in this sport, we are getting looked at to ensure we are not causing excess harm to our environment. We have no doubts that the market will change in one way or another, but it is necessary to adapt and evolve to meet our governments needs. We are happy to comply and be able to continue providing support for our loyal customers around the world.
Thanks for your support, we will do the best that we can to keep you informed!
as of what I have been reading lately. Premiere, the supplier who distributes parts to 90% of the country's diesel shops has pulled all of the dpf delete and race parts off of their shelves.
I will update as soon as I get more info. I am not part of the industry at all, I just enjoy my truck. anyone else has any news feel free to chime in.
as far as I am concerned the EPA is a crock of **** and the government has way more important issues to deal with. all of the people that go around blowing excessive amounts of black smoke are ruining the sport for everyone. hopefully everything will come out on top and H&S will be able to continue doing what they're doing
