6.7 makes me scared

im afraid that all the smog junk on the new motor will keep it from ever making real power with out major $$$$$$$. between the EGR and that HUGE CAT/sut can in the exaust, how can we work around that if they are going to start making all states smog the newer trucks?

Cut out the cat and the particulate filter, stimulate the particulate filter sensor, and disable the egr system (similar to the 6.0 powerstroke)

Many thought the advent of electronic fuel injection was the end of hot rodding. There are ways around the emissions equipment. And don't forget what stringent emissions have unwittingly done for performance. IE high pressure pumps, common rail, more boost.

I have to smog mine here. They check to make sure its all there than put it on the rollers and give it all she gots. Mine has a long way to go before she will fail. The emissions are vary low compared to the max rateing. The dont like me not haveing a muff but thats not part of smog control. Only safety, witch I can have done at a local shop to get it to pass. The smog has to be done at the state shop though. If I lived a mile north I would be in the next county and they dont require a emissions test. I love how it echos through the whole shop when they mash the tall and skinny there in the state shop.

I agree with Blake on this one, people don't like change, so automatically it has to be bad!

We might find that the little bit of work to get around emissions is worth it when you think of all the power it will make, of course this sill most definatley making modding a little more expensive with all electronics, but you'll be more than likely making more power than our grandfathers :evil:

Remember, the Audi that won Sebring and Le Mans had soot filters on them. Nothing wrong with improved technology. Work with it as much as you can. Then when you want to really go fast, off road, yank it.
