So glad I don't live or was born in CA lol! Question: if you buy another ECU for your car and keep the OEM one just for warranty needs at the dealer, can they tell you've swapped back an forth ECU's?

The whole thing is not going to be that big a deal. Dealers flash ECU's too don't forget, that's why they're reprogrammable in the first place. The biggest part of this change is probably making sure all the car's emissions sensors are reporting... which just leads to more manual fixes.

That was kind of personal for my own car kinda question. But thought of because of reading the OP's post.

thanks for posting this, it will be the topic of a serious discussion with my tuner when I am in CA next month...

this looks like a good thread to follow regarding this topic:

Bet it's more stringent than most will want to deal with.

No wonder ppl are leaving CA.
