    It's not just ANY truck.
    It needs to be a BAD ASSED big, loud, mean truck. :eek:
    Ridiculous. Most of them will never see a load that is too big to fit in my trunk.

    It alters the fuel/air characteristics of the engine.
    And if that specific configuration has not been submitted to the EPA for testing and approval (HIGHLY unlikely)
    then it is illegal.
    Same thing applies to air filters and pipes/mufflers.

    I'm not talking about a car manufacturer, I'm taking about the owner of the car.

    It makes no difference.
    It is illegal for YOU to do it too.
    Unless it will be operated 100% off-road.

    I read the new Prius C/Aqua in Japan has a 35km/l fuel consumption. OMG that is amazing, I think it is due to the new battery with double the capacity of the old Prius C Gen 1 battery pack. It is also designed to be as a emergency power supply for your home in case of a blackout, the engine and power split acts as a generator for up to 1500W at 110V.
    One paddle driving and stationed obstruction collision avoidance seems to be very cool also.

    LoL man, oh man, what a horribly boring world that would be.

    no racing. no wrenching. just accept the govt mandated firmware updates, pay whatever the required tax is, and follow all the rules.

    America, watered down.
