Yeah, and being a native of the place, I can promise you the penalty is well deserved.
My point tho was that I have the same connections as trucks made for other states, but it takes different parts, and since those parts are slightly different, it makes me wonder if the computer (or programming) is slightly different, and if it is, and I put in the regular parts (ie a regular ol O2 sensor in place of the expected A/F sensor), does it start to throw odd errors (like a 0420 when nothing is noticably wrong).
Again, theoretically possible (esp if we're talking 420), but I have no idea if it's probable or if it even applies. Just a thought for what seems like a strange problem.
I'm outside your window watching you read this.
