Overdrive Extra

More noteworthy in some respects, though, was the end of the Association’s statement, in which it stated its concerns about bypassing emissions intentionally to achieve better performance, this in line with what every truck manufacturer had to say about retuning or flashing stock engine electronic control modules for better performance or fuel economy – the subject of this month’s cover story.
