    Default Can I use a tuner to shut off my evap shit?

    So on my town car the chip I had burned custom for it shut off my evap system allowing me to gut all that shit. My 2010 Vic has an evap code and I'd like to just disable all that shit and gut it from my car as well. Will a tuner allow me to do that? I've searched to no avail.

    Nope. That was killed a few years back when SCT got sued by the government. They're currently hounding HP tuners for the same thing, but HP Tuners has bigger pockets and apparently better lawyers, so it's dragging on longer. You might contact Adam at Core Tuning www.coretuning.net and see if they can help. Doubtful as they don't list 2007+ models as tuneable. Only up to 2006. You may be stuck with fixing it.

    Isn't there a disclaimer that all the tuners have stating that their products are for offroad use only which would avoid the whole emissions thing?

    or just fix the evap shit. Probably a cracked hose someplace. Need to smoke test it. I think that generation has the box of bullshit right on the bottom of the trunk pan, probably where the issue is. If someone bottomed it out, it may have gotten a rapid unscheduled removal performed.

    That's what SCT tried to say, but the judge wouldn't have it. HP seems to be having better luck though as they can still tune stuff out as far as I know... because racecars.

    Yeah, I had it all apart and couldn't find anything. I found a thread that showed a screen that clogs but my year doesn't have it.

    I think the legal begals went at them with variations of; you can't garantee this will only be used off road, and many of your 'off-road' products are actually being used on road.
