Here in Colorado they checked mine for the software part number and compared it against the California database to ensure it matched.Just get some Big Daddies, remove SD, and flash tune back to stock check to make sure O2s and MAF are enabled, and it should be good lol?
Damn that's crazy, hope we don't go that way. If it's a visual inspect only, that's still ok, but if it's software validated what a pain.Just get some Big Daddies, remove SD, and flash tune back to stock check to make sure O2s and MAF are enabled, and it should be good lol?
I wonder if something like this could violate other privacy laws. Who is to say they will go further and start logging this information and gather more than required....It's proposed to go into effect July 2020 according to CA bureau of auto repair. 2 parameters they'll be looking for are CVN AND CAL-ID.
Calibration Verification Number (CVN): a number set by OEMs to verify the integrity of the vehicle software
Calibration Identification (Cal-ID): an ID for the software installed on the Electronic Control Unit (ECU)
I believe you can pull both CVN (aka checksum) and CAL-ID using a proper OBD scanner. I'll check my scanner here shortly....it would be helpful if anyone has info on stock GTR values for CVN and CAL-ID.
Yeah or a mitm attack and spoof the Cal-ID and CVN. Im sure someone will develop a device which can mimic OEM values.So, the next software engineer who can place the OEM signature back into the ECU may win the tuner games... for California......... other states may or may not follow ??
