Interesting... On a related note, I'm surprised California hasn't done the same with the catless downpipe suppliers.

If I'm not mistaken, the state has a fairly hefty emissions tampering fine. ...

You find it hard to believe that Cobb never explained in its forums what the counter tracks?

My understanding from Cobb's now-defunct forums is that there's no way to disable the flash counter, or at least Cobb hasn't found a way to do it.

Does your friend have a valid reason to suspect the car was tuned?
