'14 Subi OBW, '18 Subi Forester
Not really intending on getting off on a tangent here, but it’s easy for you to dismiss something as minor if you don’t really comprehend what it takes to achieve this level of performance. It works well and is transparent to the owner, so it seems simple. Trust me, it’s not.Minor as I said. I have one trust me its minor and not a big deal but many on this forum would lead you to think the PZEV is an abomination one off specialty car. LOL
Any automaker that’s gone down this pioneering path has had to foot the bill for considerable NRE. New engineering doesn’t just fall off the tree into your lap. There’s more code, considerably more testing, an almost doubling of the consumer warranty on select components, and higher running production costs on a number of components (charcoal trap, higher performance injectors, a redesign and more precious metals in the cat). Much of this will become mainstream as part of the tighter regulations coming and OBD-III, but the first guys on the block to do it bare the burden.
