I've been patiently waiting for the 2024 version Pulsar to be released. However, I just watched a video from Lonestar Hawaiian where he talked about the Pulsar causing his truck to fail inspection. Are you guys who have Pulsars removing it every year for inspection and then reinstalling it?

“If” you had to remove it for inspections it would only take about 3 minutes tops. I can’t see how it would cause a failure but if it did the removal wouldn’t be a problem.

There's been a few other people with it failing emissions testing. It prevents whatever system scan the testing does from reading all of the computer modules and their readiness states.

It shouldn't fail inspections if you remove it before hand, which is very easy to do. Not even dealerships can detect that it was ever installed once you have removed it, it leaves no foot print.
 
I remove mine as I do dealer service and have an extended warranty. Service Advisor told me off the record that many of the techs that have them on their Silverados just remove them each time they bring in for service. I thought it was going to be a pain, but it really isn't IMO. At least for me it isn't a bad trade for the benefit and peace of mind I get knowing that my AFM/DFM is off all the time and I can't let all of my 6.2 loose when she wants!!

I guess I took that for granted, but it makes sense. I guess removing it isthe option, or in my case not having one at all since they don’t have a refresh version yet. It’s not gonna help with any engine situations (3.0) but I still would like one for tire size and auto stop. The throttle sensitivity setting might be a plus with the diesel too. Hell, now I want one! (It was great on my 21 TB.

😂 Dealership technicians sometimes struggle to replace the oil fill cap… no surprise they can’t detect a Pulsar LOL!
