Great work Derek! This was much needed for us 08 guys.

I have a question. If the only difference between the PZEV and the non-PZEV FoFo's is the ECU tune, does that mean all we have to do is get a performance ECU tune and bye bye goes PZEV? And would us PZEV dudes get those missing ponies that the non-PZEV guys have?

Thanks.

Yeah I think the PZEV reuses some of the exhaust gas, more so than most EGR valve systems, too achieve the low emissions. Not sure though. But I guess that can be whiped out with a ECU tune that disables the EGR valve, like the FocusSport ECU tunes.

^^One more issue, there is no tune for the 08' yet. SCTflash keeps saying they're close to releasing one. But, I've been hearing that from them for months.

You don't have to wait for the tune before you do the CAI and exhaust. Well let me qualify that because I'm not positive about the CAI. I have the Steeda SRI and it has an insert that restricts the airflow enough so that you don't have to have a tune, remove the insert and you need that tune. I'm dying to remove that insert !!!

I've already done my exhaust (2 1/2") with no issues without the tune.

Luke, that might be an interesting question to try and get an answer to and add to the list. When is a tune required? Also the fact that we can't get one yet.
